The Small Town In Washington Boasting World-Famous Pie Is The Sweetest Day Trip Destination
Whidbey Island is such a dreamy destination. If you’re close enough to reach the island in a few hours, it makes a wonderful day trip spot. And while the town of Greenbank is extremely small, even by Whidbey’s standards, it’s definitely a place you’ll want to go. That’s where you’ll find Whidbey Pies, home to the most addicting desserts on the planet (or at least in the PNW).
Greenbank is a small community that sits in the center of Whidbey Island, south of Coupeville and north of Clinton.
About 1,600 Washingtonians call Greenbank home, with many more visitors passing through each year.
While Greenbank is not a major tourist destination, it certainly has its attractions, like the beautiful Meerkerk Gardens ...
... but the main reason people visit is to check out Greenbank Farm and the Greenbank Store.
Greenbank Farm, once the largest loganberry farm in the country, is now a collection of shops and a local cafe.
Here, you'll find walkable fields with breathtaking views of both sides of the island, two art galleries, a wine shop, and Whidbey Pies.
While pie isn't the only reason people visit Greenbank Farm, it tends to be the stop they're most excited about.
Whidbey Pies was founded in 1986 by Jan Gunn, who served her freshly baked pies alongside fresh crab cakes and clam chowder.
When Jan retired, she sold the business to her son, Joe. Joe and Jessie Gunn now own and operate Whidbey Pies, and they love it as much as Jan. All of the pies are made by hand with the best and most local ingredients possible.
While you'll always have delicious flavors to choose from, we recommend ordering the famous Loganberry pie if it's available.
The Loganberry is a hybrid of the North American blackberry and the European raspberry. And it makes an outstanding pie.
Whidbey Pies is open Thursday - Sunday from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Enjoy pie by the slice or take a whole pie to-go. But whatever you do, eat it a la mode.
