Homemade pie is comfort food at its best. Located in a cool little spot in the Arts District of Los Angeles sits a hole in the wall pie shop known as the Pie Hole.  It is a family run restaurant serving both savory and sweet pies as well as Fair Trade organic coffee. 

Becky Grasley and Matthew Heffner, the mother and son duo who started this place, has since expanded to other locations in the OC and LA. 

The shop itself is very quaint, with outdoor seating and a large communal table indoors. Recipes are framed and hung as artwork for the pie shop.

Menu
Cereal Killer Cheesecake
CEREAL KILLER CHEESECAKE ($6.25): It's your breakfast dream come true. A sweet and delicious cheesecake filled with fruity pebbles and topped with cornflakes. Crunchy and creamy all rolled up into one. Need I say more?
Earl Grey Tea Pie
MY FAVORITE DISH. EARL GREY TEA PIE ($6.75): I can't reiterate how delicious this pie is. The crust is flaky and not overly dense. The filling is nice and smooth. The hint of earl grey just slightly coats the palate without it overpowering the whole pie. Hints of chocolate can be tasted as well. It's one of the those pies that is one of a kind.


Overall, this pie shop is great! The vibe is slightly hipster and the pies are unique. I appreciate that they offer both sweet and savory so you're not contingent on one type of taste. It's a great place to catch up with friends over coffee and some delicious pie. The location is kinda hidden but just look for the Wurstkuche and you know you're nearby.
