Dora's Restaurant Review

: Formerly A Dora Pie, Dora's now serves beer and savory snacks along with a selection of sweet, seasonal dessert pies. Chocolate choices incorporate the quality Madagascar beans owner Christopher Blue sources for his Chocolatier Blue specialty chocolates next door. 'Dora' references wife Jessica Steeve's grandmother, whose pie crust recipe is implemented here. Savory "bunzas" --- filling-stuffed bun sandwiches --- include chicken korma and beef with cheddar. Daily craft beers are from local sources such as Fieldwork and Altamont. The lovely rose-strewn beer garden behind the shop features plenty of outdoor seating.
