BEST PIES FOR YOUR FOURTH OF JULY

  1. Cherry Pie
    Good Girl Dinette's pie pop-up in Highland Park. Fruit is from local K&K Ranch--all profits go to Southern Poverty Law Center. Order via phone 323 257 8980.
  2. Strawberry Pie
    The Pie Hole -- mini-pies are $4.50 each. Two locations in Arts District and Pasadena.
  3. Blueberry Pie
    Valerie will have their Stars & Stripes pie available for pickup today at Grand Central Market and the Echo Park cafe. (Note: we also named them "Best Chocolatier" in 2014).
  4. Raspberry Pie
    Du-Par's is a go-to classic, but the raspberry pie is a seasonal standout. LA locations in Studio City and Farmer's Market on 3rd/Fairfax.
  5. Apple Pie
    Clementine has one of the best--though next time order in advance. Closed today! Try the Alcove in Los Feliz for a tart, Granny Smith taste or, of course, Philippe the Original's chunky apple and s thin crust made with shortening. Everybody loves the Apple Pan.
  6. Salted Honey Pie
    Brite Spot in Echo Park--the rhubarb is darn good there too.
  7. Vanilla Cream Tart
    For the "I hate pie" people, Susina Bakery in mid-city serves a vanilla cream tart with a flag made from raspberries, blueberries, and whipped cream.
  8. Boysenberry Pie
    Pie 'N Burger, an old school Pasadena Diner, sells an old school pie. The blackberry is also great. Heads up: peach pie season starts next week!
  9. Triple Berry Pie
    Raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries make up the triple berry at Village Bakery in Atwater Village.
