Must Visit: The Pie Hole in Los Angeles

The Pie Hole Los Angeles

Thanks to this roundup from Oh Joy! I am definitely adding The Pie Hole Los Angeles to my “Must Visit” list. Pie will always have a special place in my heart as we chose to serve pie at our wedding instead of a traditional wedding cake. There’s just something about a delicious piece of pie that’s perhaps one of the best desserts out there. It always reminds me of “home,” even though I didn’t grow up in a house where we ate a lot of pie.

I have to imagine that is a banana cream pie of some sort above. Does it look wonderful, or what? As is the trend at the moment, The Pie Hole serves both sweet and savory pies. Their selection appears to change daily, so follow them on Twitter for the latest updates.

If you’re in the Los Angeles area you can find The Pie Hole at 714 Traction Avenue.

Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE cupcakes. It’s just that I’ve had so many subpar cupcakes over the past couple of years that I’ve found myself looking for new types of desserts to enjoy.

Adding Frosted to my list ended up being one of the best decisions I made on this trip to the west coast. If you want to know what a really freaking good cupcake tastes like, then get yourself over to Frosted ASAP. I loved it so much that in a four day trip I went there twice. I considered stopping a third time but didn’t want to risk becoming a regular in such a short amount of time. Continue reading →

On a recent trip to Los Angeles I stopped by Milk to try out a couple of treats. I left there with a Moonpie, because I’d recently been down south where I’d been reintroduced to Moonpies and for a period of a couple of weeks I couldn’t get enough. Continue reading →
