No matter what the season, there’s always room for pie. Whether it’s peach, apple, pecan or pumpkin, there are plenty of places to find good, homemade pie in Pittsburgh. Here are some of KDKA’s favorites.

The Pie Place

1775 N Highland Rd
Pittsburgh, PA
(412) 835-4410

Located near South Hills Village Mall, The Pie Place specializes in pies, tarts, cakes, cupcakes and other yummy treats to satisfy your sweet tooth. This shop prides itself on using as many local ingredients as they can, using many suppliers that are located in the Strip District. One KDKA staff member says, “Through a large picture window, you can see the pastry chefs creating their masterpieces…and the pies are huge!” Another staffer loves the variety The Pie Place has to offer.

Route 40 Classic Diner

6229 National Pike
Grindstone, PA 15442

If you want some pie with a side of 1950’s flair, this is the place for you. Located in Grindstone, patrons love the huge portions and unique ambience. Along with classic diner food like country fried steak, burgers and chicken sandwiches, dessert is always a highlight. One KDKA staff member says, “Great mix of towering homemade pies.”

Sand Hill Berries

304 Deer Field Road
Mt. Pleasant, PA 15666

Fruit-pie lovers rejoice! What better place to get a pie than on a farm, where the ingredients are picked fresh and in season. This family owned and operated small fruits farm specializes in all types of berries, including hard-to-find yellow raspberries and red currants. One KDKA staff member’s favorite is the raspberry cream pie. They also have a great tip: “Don’t forget to pick up some wine from the adjacent Greendance Winery to go with it!”

Party Cake Shop

706 Brookline Blvd.
Pittsburgh, PA 15226

297 Beverly Rd.
Pittsburgh, PA 15216

Party Cake Shop has been in business since 1961, but its original Brookline Boulevard location has been operating as a bakery for the last century! Now with locations in Brookline and Mt. Lebanon, this family-owned and operated bakery makes our favorites because of its “unbelievable service” and the “great flavor” of its pies.

King’s Family Restaurant

Over 30 locations

This local chain restaurant has enough desserts to please everybody, especially when it comes to their pies. If you’re trying to watch your sugar intake, they even have sugar-free options. One KDKA staffer says, “Their homemade pie is the best. King’s apple pie with cinnamon ice cream takes me back to my childhood… My parents LOVE this place, too!”

Glisan’s Restaurant

4625 National Pike
Markleysburg, PA 15459
(724) 329-4636

Glisan’s is a great place to stop for a meal if you’re looking for good food at reasonable prices. Patrons love the variety of pies available, and say the flavors are great. They also say the staff is friendly and the service is prompt. Some say it’s just like having a meal at Grandma’s — complete with a huge pie for dessert.
