  1. Metropolitan Market sells pies from Whidbey's that are very good. Probably one of the closest to home made.

    We also sampled some pies from High Five that we thought were excellent.

    1. I like the Seattle Pie Company in Wallingford.

      I was not impressed with Pie in Fremont at all.

      I usually find that grocery store pies are cheap, but meh. I haven't tried the Metropolitan Market's pies, though.

        Metropolitan carries these http://www.whidbeypies.com/ They are one of the closest pies to home made that I've eaten from a store/cafe.

        Dahlia Bakery also has very good pies.

          How much are the Whidbey pies at Metropolitan Market?

          We got a High 5 last year (pumpkin) and it was just ok. I don't remember how much it was, but less than $20 I'm pretty sure.

          I saw that Skillet is doing pies this year and considered the pumpkin hazelnut, but can't quite bring myself to pay $25 for pie.

          1. re: Bax

            I think they are around $18. I have mostly had the Whidbey's berry pies.

      2. Deborah's pies are absolutely delicious---homemade and extremely good. She sells them on Sundays at the Ballard Farmer's Market. I'm not sure if they are available elsewhere, but it's the best pie around, I think.

        1. I'm a fan of A la Mode pies, in Phinney (new) and you can order pies online from GrumpyPie.com--I believe both deliver too, which is convenient.

          1. Grand Central Bakery is doing a variety of holiday desserts, including pies, an apple cake, and more. You can pre-order in shops, and probably on-line as well, tho I have not checked this.

            1. This is NOT a recommendation, but a few years back I purchased pie for Thanksgiving at the Dahlia
              Bakery pie - Coconut Cream. It was expensive and the crust was soooo hard that it was inedible. I was shocked how bad the crust was from a professional bakery and embarrassed how much I paid for the pie.

              My advice, no matter where you go, is to buy/sample a slice pie before you plunk down the big bucks.
