As I've said previously, I rarely travel very far out of the city but rules are made to be broken. This particular trip was my first out to the Dandenong Ranges, so after a beautiful morning of sight-seeing, we were off to try what was reputed to the best pies in Melbourne.
Pie in the Sky is a noisy yet homely little cafe that has a steady stream of what appeared to be both locals and tourists alike. The pie-menu was certainly diverse, with an additional range of pastries and sweets on offer, just to tempt you.

That's only the take-away menu mind you - there's a few extra optional available for dining in, and the pies come with optional sides of chips and salad. With all that choice it took us a while to decide what we wanted.
I wasn't particularly in the mood for meat as it turned out, so I settled on their award-winning Fetta pie - a combination spinach, cheese, rice and fetta.
My companion, in somewhat of a nod to the city I grew up in, ordered a Beef & Burgundy Pie Floater.

Unfortunately, this was not voted the best pie floater in Victoria by my companion, and in hindsight, he may have been better off getting just a regular pie. It was worth a try though, and the pie itself was deemed quite passable.
It's a bit a trip just to get a decent pie, but if you're ever in the area and feel like something filling, you can't really go wrong with a pie.
