10 Favorite Spots for Pie & Coffee in Greater Phoenix
Vittles get cooked up nice 'n' comfort food-like at this family-owned breakfast and lunch joint in Avondale in business since 1982. Homemade "from the crust up," daily selections of around 25 varieties of pies might include fruity delights like blueberry, cherry crunch, or in-season rhubarb or creamy creations such as banana, coconut praline, or Neapolitan. Order up a slice with coffee or call in advance to have a whole pie made especially for you.
Mom's got meatloaf. Mom's got pot roast with roasted veggies. And at her unassuming, 30-plus-year-old neighborhood restaurant in Central Phoenix, mom's also got homemade pie to go with the Joe. Featuring seasonal fruit pies like blueberry, peach, and apple, and lusciously creamy banana, strawberry, and chocolate creations, pick a favorite then get ready for a humongous piece to be set in front of you. (Mom says you should eat.)
This charming, months-old snack shop and coffeehouse in a renovated 1920s bungalow in Central Phoenix imports its beans from the award-winning Village Coffee Roastery in Scottsdale, makes their pies from scratch, and, if you're in need of an psychic -- well, they've got that, too. Why not enjoy a cup of coffee and a fresh-baked slice of one of Miss Susan's apple, apple kiwi, blackberry, or raspberry creations over a reading? Because at this point, the future looks delicious.
"Life's too short to eat bad pie!" That's what Traci Wilbur, owner and founder of Pie Snob, says -- and we couldn't agree more.

Eatery & NanoBrewery in East Phoenix.
