As the hot summer cools to a crisp 76 degrees and the signs of the impending holidays start popping up all over the city, nothing hits the spot quite like a plate piled high with pie. Glorious pie. Get your fix at one of these tasty LA pie spots perfect for young (and young at heart) dessert connoisseurs.

Simplethings Sandwich and Pie Shop

From the brown paper and cup of crayons covering every table, to the incredible selection of mini pies, this place is hands down one of the best pie shops for kids. Pies come in three sizes: the mini Cutie Pies (just the right size for little pie lovers), the medium-sized Simple Pie (perfect for sharing), and the large Big Pie (if you want to take one home).

Grab A Slice: There are so many awesome flavors, but kids will love the Mud Pie and Chocolate Cream. Be sure to check the pie schedule online in advance to make sure they have the flavor you want on a specific day. Beyond the pie, the menu offers tons of kid-pleasing options, like Mac n’ Cheese and Tater Tots, in case you have room for lunch to go with dessert.
