Does anyone here shop at Ackroyd's Scotch Bakery in Redford? They used to have a shop on Whittier when I was growning up, and I loved their round, hard sided meat pies. They've been on my mind lately, and I found they have a website that is evidently just under construction but I gather that they do ship. Sounds like they are the only Scotch bakery in the country! I want some of those meat pies!! If shipping isn't too much, I hope to order some.

Used to shop there all the time when I lived around 6 Mile and Telegraph. They must be redesigning their website. The last time I looked at it, it did say that they shipped. Gonna have to stop in when I'm home in May.

I'm only a couple miles away, so I get by Ackroyd's once or twice a month when I feel the urge to do the meat pie/pasty thing.
Good stuff!
To be honest, I had no idea they had a website OR delivery..

I thought they were good, My Dad thought so too. Except every pasty he eats He says "Not as good as the U.P.".

Well they aren't supposed to be the same as those in the U.P.! These are Scotch (Scottish?). Don't have rutabaga in them, for one thing. I hope their website is up and running again soon. I'm definitely going to order some meat pies, and bridies if the have them.

Ackroyd's has good stuff.

For a decent U.P. pasty, try Barb's in Clawson.

I shop there also. Love those meat pies. Also Barb's Pasties in Clawson is good. The beef pasties are authentic, take it from another Yooper in exile.

Ackroyd's sells Scottish meat pies. They are a different "animal" than Pasties. The filling is a bit different and the pastry is more of a puff pastry than pie crust, whereas the pasty has rutabaga in the filling and the crust is more of a pie crust. Personally, I enjoy both. Living out of state, I can't get either "species" and I miss both of them.

Actually, Ackroyd's sells both.
:-)
And lots of other goodies as well. Dangit..you guys are makin' me hungry, and my food budget for the day is leaning more towards "balogna sammich" than ANYTHING prepared elsewhere..
:-(
Least my sammich is on West Fenkell Bakery bread..(mmmm..multi-grain goodness.)
:-)
