Coconut Creme Pie?

Anyone know where to buy a great coconut creme pie. It's a friend's birthday and they've requested it. I don't want to be forced to go to like marie callenders or something. Thanks.

      I second Apple Pan. Others mentioned are also very good, but Apple Pan's is amazing.

            Martino's Bakery in Burbank... They make the pies that Philippes serves.

              You beat me to it - Martino's has great pies. They're closed on Sundays, just in case you were planning to go then.

                Martino's also has amazing cinnamon & sugar muffins!

          1. Marie Callenders pies are way better than any of those!

            1. Nobody makes Coconut Cream out here, it's all Coconut Meringue.

                Love Pie N' Burger! I didn't even realize that House of Pies still existed. Loved going there as a kid (to the one in Beverly Hills and the one in Santa Monica, both of which are long gone). Where is the House of Pies located???

                  In Los Feliz - on Vermont & Franklin.

                    The Engine Co 28 in downtown has an excellent cocunut cream pie. They don't have it every day so I would call ahead to make sure they do. It is worth the drive!

                  Yes, Pie N Burger's does have meringue - makes it all the more yummy!
