Whether its the boss on your back, your lover calling to break up (again), or the puzzling investigation of a brutal murder of a popular high school student named Laura Palmer, troubles seem to melt away with a slice of pie and a "damn fine cup of coffee" at your favorite neighborhood restaurant, diner, or java shop.

Along with the coffee and espresso drinks, owner Virginia Senior serves up some incredibly "oh my!" slices of pie at her Midtown Phoenix java and wine bar. Ranging from seasonal to standard delights baked fresh every day, our favorite is the Pink Diablo. Featuring a walnut cookie crumb crust, a prickly pear cheesecake is topped with lime curd with a splash of tequila and finished with meringue, mint, and agave habanero sauce. Oh my, indeed.

Fran's Place

Grandma Fran does home cookin' proud in her cute little pink-painted breakfast and lunch spot in Mesa. Along with the chicken fried steak and the biscuits and gravy, there are mouthwatering pies that pair perfectly with the coffee -- especially the apple. Topped with a scoop or two of ice cream, Fran's generous slices of pie make sure no one goes home hungry. But if you do want more, you can buy her pies whole to take home.

At this diner-style spot in North Phoenix, Peggy's pies are as popular with the regulars as the scratch-made biscuits and home-style meatloaf. Belly up to the counter and order up a slice of whatever variety Peggy decided to make that day (plain or a la mode) along with a hot cup o' Joe and tell the waitress your troubles. After all, the sign in the restaurant says "Pie Fixes Everything," and Peggy wouldn't lie about something like that.

Love My Mother's Restaurant, but I've never tried the pies. Better make a visit.
