The Farm at South Mountain

Can pie and coffee get any better than when they're enjoyed outdoors amid lush lawns, bright flowers, and pecan trees a half-century old? Unlikely. At this South Phoenix getaway, a tree-shaded patio or weathered picnic table makes for an idyllic setting to savor a slice of made-from-scratch pecan or a mini fruit-filled cobbler along with slow sips of coffee. No additional charge for tranquility or reflection.

The Iowa Cafe

Since Ruth Cavendar of Mount Ayr, Iowa, started this Midwestern-centric cafe in Mesa in 1985, the same family recipes for her popular, fresh-baked pies are still used today. Featuring more than 20 types of homemade creations (think Dutch apple, peach, and butterscotch) available by the slice, as whole pies, a la mode, or with a chocolate sundae, the question isn't whether or not to have pie, but which one to have -- and how.

Terra Java Coffee House & Bake Shop

This East Phoenix coffee house (formerly Mama Java's) serves up brewed coffees, specialty drinks, and traditional Italian roasted espresso along with small-batch baked goods that, at least for November, include pies from guest baker Charlie Blonkenfeld of That Flaky Pie Company. His two creations, a five-spice pumpkin with a rosemary-tinged crust and a garam masala apple pie made with Medjool dates sound as mouthwatering as they taste.

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