As the sizzle of summer has cooled into fall and the quickly approaching holidays start making their way into our hearts (and schedules), nothing quite hits the festive spot more than a slice of mouthwatering pie. You and your pint-sized pastry lovers can relax with your plate pie-led high or pick up a holiday sweet when you don’t have time to bake. Check out our picks for the most delicious Los Angeles pie shops that truly understand how to put the “comfort” in “comfort food.”

Atticus Creamery & Pies

What’s better than pie you ask? Pie and ice cream of course! At this hands-on shop you can bask in the glory of both worlds where all menu items are expertly handmade from scratch daily. Their signature custard-style pies come in a variety of unique flavors, like Salted Caramel Popcorn, Strawberry Pistachio and Peanut Butter Nutella, all in adorable mini-pie size, perfect for your young foodies to enjoy. Looking for something a bit more traditional? Grab a fork and dig into their Apple Pie Crumble or the insanely good Blackberry Cheesecake Pie.

Easy As Pie: They may be tiny in size but the mini pies are plenty filling, especially when paired with a scoop of ice cream (which is pretty much a must-do). The biggest challenge to eating here is narrowing your choices down to just one flavor so be sure to ask for a sample of both ice cream and pie to help with your final selections!
