I want pie...mmmm, pie..in Glendale, Atwater, Eagle Rock, or thereabouts

I blame Evan Kleiman on Good Food, with the "pie a day" challenge. I can't stop thinking about pie. Any good suggestions? Not crazy about Marie Callendar's, or any pie that doesn't taste absolutely fresh. Definitely dessert type pies, especially fruit type ones. Please help! I can't rest until I have pie.

  1. Larkins (Eagle Rock) has a very good sweet potato pie.

    1. Atwater Farmer's Market - there's a vendor who sells homemade pies and definitely had fruit pies - apple, peach, berry etc. I really liked the peach pie I got there some time ago and this time of year I should think is good for fruit in season. I haven't been to this particular market in quite a while, but presume he might still be there.

        yes, the pie guy is still there! i had a rhubarb pie about a month ago and it was amazing. i've also gotten pickled beets from him as well, on a side note. he has a blueberry pie that looks insane and i plan to get that one day. also, auntie em's in eagle rock has the most insane pie i've ever had- it's chocolate peanut butter pie. i had it for a birthday a few weeks ago. not sure if it's there all the time, so call ahead and ask. this pie made my head spin.

            Don't forget to check out Big Mista's BBQ.

      2. A few miles east of the requested area, but Pie 'n' Burger is a worthy candidate. My favorites are butterscotch and coconut cream, but everything I've had has been excellent. Not all pies are available all days, so it's good to call ahead.

          I agree. Sometimes I go to Pie n Burger and just get the pie. My favorites are dutch apple and banana cream.

            This time of year? At P n B go for the fresh peach or fresh strawberry. Or the ollaieberry. Sooo good!

        2. Not a pie, technically, and they've raised their prices but...

          The fruit cobblers at The Cobbler Factory are yummy! Love the peach. Love.
