Decent Fruit pie in Portland??

Can't seem to find a decent Pie in Portland. Cookies, doughnuts and flakey little puff pastries that the yuppies like, can be found easily, but a decent PIE can't be found....

Any suggestions??

  1. Go to the Bipartisan Cafe for all your pie needs. Tasty, tasty, tasty. The crust is as amazing as the filling and both are flavor-locomotives on a one-way track to satisfaction. Oh yeah, and it's 3 bucks for a nice, ample slice. Deal with that.

      Hey! I know where that place is located! Across from teh Academy Theater... I'll check it out. If they sell whole pies, we're in business...

        Whole pies are totally sold there. I have yet to purchase one because I know I would eat it in one sitting and that would, like, kill my figure. Try the marionberry.

    2. For reasons unknown to me, The Limelight in Sellwood has amazing apple pie - by the slice, mind you.

      1. Try Common Grounds over on Hawthorne Blvd. They are baking old-fashioned pies from scratch twice a week, and it's first come first served for peach, apple, berry, rhubarb, etc. There's never a bite of crust going to waste and I'd give my best cat for that crust recipe. Everything else there is really delicious, too.

          Random order on Alberta. I love their pie! Handmade, local seasonal ingredients.
          Named best pie in The Oregonian's Best Bites issue, two years in a row.

          "Best cat"...sounds like an oxymoron...
