The Pie Hole

Now with locations in Hollywood, Glendale, Pasadena, the Arts District and Orange County, the Pie Hole has developed a reputation as one of L.A.'s go-to spots for a serious slice of pie. The family-owned cafe, whose Arts District interior consists of a few basic wooden picnic tables and chairs, offers homemade (if slightly expensive) pie varieties that range from Mexican Chocolate to a savory mac and cheese hand pie. One of our favorites includes the light-as-a-feather Earl Grey Tea pie, with its mound of whipped topping and a thin layer of chocolate ganache on top of the buttery crust.

The Mexican chocolate pie here is the real deal. The Earl Grey tea pie comes in at a close number two. The original Arts District location is the most well-stocked but probably the busiest; consider one of the other locations if you don't feel like waiting on a line out the door.

For who likes pies, this is the place to go! (The apple pie is really something!!!) The space looks smaller on the outside than it really is: as you enter, you'll find two spaces very well designed: one where you can find the menu and all the delicious pies they have to offer and the other where you can, or wait for your order or sit and eat! I think it can be a bit pricy, but for a special occasion, it certainly is worth it.

We took the family here for desserts after a day at the Japanese-American museum and had just about everything on the menu! The chicken pot pie was the best I have ever had and the sweet pies had my kids screaming for more. Probably the cheapest dinner I've had especially compared to other restaurants we would typically go to downtown. A must try!
