Many people go here to buy their pies for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but any time you want a pie like Grandma used to make, come here. The selection is large, and the pies are, well, almost so good you will want to eat a while pie yourself!

It was a really cold and wet day when we got there. It was like everyone working there went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Wet coats and hats were safely placed on an out of the way table and hot coffee arrived almost immediately. And let's not forget the pies. I almost had a sugar overload... More

I went there to chill out with friends and they have crispy chicken tenders and fries for the kids and I was craving a nice quesadilla. It was delicious, we enjoyed a lot. Fast service. The Pies looked delicious, if I only had room for more. The ambiance is chilled out, good for conversations. My friends orders clam chowder with... More

This place is good to get your pies. They are even open during holidays but just be early since there will surely be a line outside. Don't worry about the line since they are well staff and the waiting time is less than 20 minutes.

Please do not visit this place if you are coming for the pie. They are sweet and sugary factory confections simply heated on site and which are slightly worse than frozen pie from the grocery. The fruit pies are particularly bad, mostly gelatin. The coffee is also terrible even in comparison to Denny's. The diner-style food is indistinguishable from places... More

I really like this place. It is always open after the bars close and the food is good. It's diner food, so expect that. The prices are nice and the pie is exceptional. My only gripe with House of Pies is that they've kind of "updated" the decor inside and its slowly losing it's nostalgic feel. PRO TIP: If you... More

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
