Updated for 2023
Thanksgiving dinner isn’t all about the turkey. As you plan your menu and are trying to decide on dessert, keep in mind that you don’t have to do it all yourself.
People love pie any time of the year, and math nerds especially love March 14th (for math reasons), so why not grab a slice – or the whole pie – from one of these great pie shops!
Here in Southern California, you’ll find many restaurants and bakeries with some of the best holiday pies around. Here is our list of the Best Pie Shops in Los Angeles. If we didn’t list your favorite, please let us know what it is in the comments.
By the way, it’s not necessary to save Pie just for the holidays. What about a Thursday? Or on Pi Day (3/14)? Feel free to enjoy it anytime you like!
