Adorable, walkable area. The shop is small...but as soon as you near the door you can smell the goodness within. The traditional Cornish pasty was fantastic! The butter, flakey crust was as good as the filling! We loved them so much, we bought frozen varieties to take home! Definitely worth the drive!

So it had been a while since I went to this pasty place and I was excited to get back. They had a nice selection and I opted for the chicken cordon blue pasty and an Eccles cake. The pasty was superb. The dough was thick and very flavorful the filling was moist and very tasty. There were a lot of potato chunks but that was okay as the sauce had soaked into them. The Eccles cake had slightly thinner, sweeter dough and the filling reminded me of mince meat pie filling. Very yummy. Also a joy to go.

The food was great and service was nice, I was welcomed upon entering and the staff gave me great advice on what to order. The food was good and they offer free dipping sauces that complement the flavor. The amount of flavor depends on what kind of pasty you get, some at more flavorful and or spicy than others. Over all a great experience

Never seen a restaurant price gouge before... just tried ordering from Pure Pasty and the cashier added an additional 10% fee because of COVID?! Come on. Talk about taking advantage. I love pasties as much as the next guy, but randomly adding additional crisis fees is beyond the pale, especially for food service. Don't recommend. Will not return.

This is a super small location in an alley. Very crowded inside with no seating available. Got frozen pasties for inventory at the house priced at about $9. Small dessert sweet pastry was $3.75.

If you are craving, or simply want to try out British and Australian foods, this is the place. When we visited, we could see a team in the back busily rolling out the fresh dough for and filling the pastys that give this place its name. There's no room for indoor seating and just a bench outside, but you are better off taking your treats to another spot to nosh. The "view" here is of a parking lot and there's a great park (Vienna Town Green) and others nearby. In addition to canned and packaged imports, you'll find freshly made pastys--sweet and savory-- and sausage rolls (all also available frozen). If you get on their mailing list, you'll get friendly update on seasonal treats. Parking can be tricky. There's a tiny parking lot just outside that is shared with numerous other businesses and some residents. But none of the businesses seem to attract long parkers. Plan ahead if you've not been before as some freshly prepared items (to be eaten hot or fairly soon after purchase) can run out. We found their sausages rolls and pastys to be very good. The dough is light and tasty.

We are so pleased to have learned about this wonderful gem in Vienna, Virginia ! I am a native of the Upper Peninsula “U.P.” of Michigan, where pasties are a staple, and “Yoopers” are raised on pasties. A long history there... So I have probably eaten pasties from 30 different sources including many different relatives, and everyone prides themselves on their “family recipe.” Enough for background. It was with high expectations that I ordered these pasties on-line, shipped/packed in dry-ice, styrophome chest for home delivery. Our pasties arrived still frozen and in great shape We ordered three different styles of pasties: (3) Lamb Moroccan pasties, (2) Chicken Masala pasties, and (2) the more “traditional” beef pasties. We have tried the lamb and chicken so far, and they have actually EXCEEDED our expectations ! As with any pie crust, the key is (a) flaky, and (b) moist. Pure Pasty Co. gets an 11 on a scale of 1-10 on this great, great crust construction. Oh my ! They nail it. As far as ingredients, there is obviously NO skimping on any ingredient, starting with the meat (minced lamb or the moist chicken). I am actually used to slapping a pat of butter inside most pasties in order to make them moist enough...NOT necessary with these pasties. As noted, quality ingredients from the Halal lamb, etc., etc. We are now excited and looking forward to other ‘Pure Pasty Co.’ products, including desserts. I am not a vegetarian but I know that they make pasties to accommodate for that style of diet (I think cheese & onion). Noted that these folks won not one but TWO consecutive years of “First Place” in the World competition for World’s Best Pastie. Pretty impressive, and not having been there, we can believe it. Enough gushing. I believe that when a company has a product this superior, they deserve credit for it AND customers desiring a great product need to know about it ! MAXIMUM recommendation.

Great Pies! Great people! Tough to find, hidden down an alley. Thanks to GPS. Well worth the search.

They have a wonderful choice of pies which are all delicious. A nice place to grab something different but quite satisfying to your palette.

Accidentally walked in there a year ago, and have randomly taken family/friends who all love it. Its nice to have something different in Vienna with all the chains going in.

Great hand made pasties with friendly and fast service. Traditional and exotic- all are great. Although a bit more expensive then your typical greasy London corner pasty, they are also much better than your typical greasy London corner pasty.

This is a great restaurant with an excellent variety of gluten free entrees. My wife is GF so I naturally select GF entrees. Tasty meals in a nice environment..only issue..TV's are a distraction.

When I first heard about it I had doubts. But once I tried it all my fears went away and memories from my school days in England came back and it was a great feeling and taste. I highly recommend a visit and try everything.
