The city of Clanton is well known for its peaches, and for its shops right off Interstate 65 that welcome weary travelers with produce, jams, jellies and ice cream.

But soon, Clanton may become known for the sweet treats and tasty breakfast foods served up at Pies by Mike, the family-owned bakery and coffee shop that’s been open on Lay Dam Road since 2020. The bakery’s slogan, “incrediliciously good,” is a little hard to pronounce, and owner Mike Graham admits he sort of made it up. But it seems to fit the character of the place, with rows and rows of delectable pies available whole or by the slice, served up with its own blend of coffee.

Graham says he’s always enjoyed cooking, and he started making the Toll House pie years ago when he and his wife, Alice, had friends over. Many friends told him for years that he needed to sell the pies, but he never gave it a serious thought.
