Pie Eyed in San Diego
Okay Guys, The Dining Diva and I are on the lookout for some places that make really good dessert pies. I'm not talking Coco's, Marie Callendar's or even the Chicken Pie Shop, but bakeries, restaurants or coffee shops that may turn out a to-die-for Lemon Meringue, Chocolate Silk or Banana Cream. Thanks for the tips in advance.
The Village Bakery, in the Del Mar Highlands shopping center, makes an awesome cherry pie. They used to sell it at the Del Mar farmer's market on Saturdays, but they haven't been there for over a year...when they were there, I had a chance to talk with the baker/owner's husband, and he told me that she uses fresh cherries. The ingredients are all top-notch. I'm not a huge pie fan, but this one is really special. We have friends who come down from LA and always make sure they have one of those cherry pies!
