We visited on a Wednesday, just going thru L.A. they had many options to chose from we chose the old fashion apple pie with a side of vanilla ice cream, it was amazing it was a good size piece and a large scoop of ice cream, it's worth a stop in while your sight seeing in L.A.

We enjoyed a short break at this place near hollywood blvd. The coffee is really good and the service too. Nice place and interior with a view to the street. The desserts are average but not at all special. The price is not according the taste, not at all. But just try the pie and get yourself an oppinion.

I like the idea but prefer more traditional pies. The chocolate cream pie crust was bland but the filling was good.

A nice mixture of unique desserts, set in a coop with a few other vendors. A nice stroll while your walking in Old Town Pasadena.

So I went here with my friends and immediately the vibe of the place is uber hipster on arrival. We got slices of several pies- The pecan pie is a is a familiar and comfortable option - full of flavour and we all really liked it. The Earl Grey pie was novel and unique and definitely worth trying when visiting!

The Pie Hole has delicious sweet and savory pies, but the most decadent and memorable is the Mexican chocolate pie. It is rich and flavorful chocolate crusty pie served with a light and fluffy vanilla cream. It is absolutely a must needed stop for chocolate and pie lovers. They have several other options with spins on traditional pies. I also... More

My cousin and I went to the Hollywood Pie Hole with a Groupon. He had a bacon/hash breakfast pie (even though it was dinner time) and I had a chicken cornbread pie. Both were yummy with wonderful, flaky crust. We shared a salted caramel pie which really seemed like an excellent pecan pie. Their coffee is stellar--strong and flavorful. I... More

I really enjoyed the s'mores pie. For some reason, I was expecting several cases of pie but I believe it was one small case. We ended up getting 2 small pieces of s'mores pie and a cheesesteak pie for $19.50. Kind of pricey I think.

New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
