So, you've decided to have a pie. A sweet pie I mean. If such a thing happened to you in LA you definitely should go to the House of Pies. Everything, starting from welcoming you and up to the temperature of the drinks and pie is just right. Don't miss!

I found House of Pies through one tiny mention in the biography of a Hollywood producer (Don Simpson, for those who are interested) who used to spend a lot of his time there devouring whole pies in a single sitting. I’m glad I read that book! The pies are wonderful and the architecture, décor and ambiance are absolute mid-century perfection.... More

This is a great place for a meal or mid-day snack. The food is great, the service is great, the portions are not skimpy. We always feel welcome, and that our business is appreciated.

This place is so "L.A." that you'll feel like you are stepping into an actual movie set when you open the door. It's the quintessential Los Angeles diner: nothing fancy but with so much atmosphere. Geez, even the building itself is photogenic. The food is typical diner fare and they do some things better than others (salads are just so/so... More

A group of us stopped by to have dinner. Typical diner-type food. Good burgers and fries. Was really looking forward to the pie for dessert. We tried several different flavors and they were ok - was expecting so much more & not really worth the calories. If I'm going to eat desert, I want it to be worth every calorie!... More

Wonderful shabby chic style diner. Great for breakfasts of all types. There is on site parking and the waitresses will push tables together to accommodate large groups. No reservations required. It's is friendly and coffee is refillable at no extra charge. They have latte and other coffee options on the menu, but they are no longer available since they don't... More

No frills eatery with a rotating menu of pies, plus various coffee and adult beverages. Indoor and limited outdoor seating. Good choice for dessert after a meal in Little Tokyo.

I ran into this Pie restaurant after my date at the Griffith Observatory... it was open late and we were craving something sweet. They had the largest selection of pies I have ever seen: peach - I got this one, apple to sugarless pies, they have it all!

We chanced upon House of Pies whilst visiting Hollywood and were pleased we did. The soup and chicken pot pie were both very tasty but the main event was the desert. The apple pie was excellent, one of the best I have had. Service was excellent and the bill was a pleasure to receive.
