    i agree totally depends upon what you want...

    banana cream --> babalu
    apple pie --> al gelato, for reasonably priced --> costco (surprisingly), ralph's (if you like the streusel)
    pumpkin --> urth caffe

      I think Marie Callendar's makes the best pies.

        Hmmm... an amazing pie place... in LA? Of course there are plenty! The real question is, and where the answer becomes fickle, is when you say what kind of pie you're looking for.

        Take for example the Banana Cream Pie. If you wanted that I'd send you to Apple Pan. If you were looking for say, a Lemon Meringue, I'd scoot you off to Sweet Lady Jane's with a warning to just keep smiling no matter what.
