You may dread the holidays or the family get-togethers they entail. You may reject conformity and gather with your chosen family rather than blood relatives. You may feel frustrated that your cultural traditions are crowded out by a “holiday season” that, semantics aside, is still really mostly all about Christmas. But put all of that away in a box, put the box under a tree, and light the tree on fire: Everyone loves pie.

Some people love baking pies, but mostly we’re talking about eating pies. So consider this list of pie purveyours your cheat sheet. If you need to take the workload off the dessert course or don’t want to show up to the potluck empty-handed, any of these will be a hit on a “holiday” table, or any table.

Ben's Bread Co.

Copy Link

This small-batch bakery on Phinney Ridge is having a moment as one of the area’s best new restaurants. Though the case is normally loaded with locally inspired pastries and sourdough loaves, Ben’s holiday pies are highly sought after and often sell out in advance. The pumpkin pie tastes extra warm thanks to the the addition of cayenne in the spice blend, and other flavors like the double-crust Cosmic Crisp apple pie and a silky chocolate cream pie with candied hazelnuts feel like new additions to the pie canon.

The British Pantry Ltd.

Copy Link

In its 43 years in Redmond, the British Pantry has become an Eastside go to for British fare as well as European imports. A savory steak and mushroom pie is among the hearty English classics like bangers and mash, and the dessert menu offers a variety of personal fruit pies in flavors like apple, apple-blueberry, strawberry, and rhubarb. Add a side of sweet English cream or even cheese for a twist on the typical scoop of ice cream on top.

A La Mode Pies

Phinney Ridge's pie haven, which has now expanded to West Seattle and Ballard, has some wonderful rotating seasonal concoctions, including Key lime, the Blue Hawaiian (blueberries, crushed pineapple, and toasted coconut), and Mexican chocolate mousse.

Pie Bar Ballard

Specializing in both savory and sweet options, this longtime favorite should have something for everyone, whether it’s the vegan crimini mushroom pot pie or the Bumble Berry Crumble (with Granny Smith apples, strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries).

Simply Soulful

Copy Link

Madison Valley’s mother-daughter pie shop specializes in sweet potato pies (and tarts), which are available all year round, but are especially great around the holidays. Regular pies are available for pre-order here (if the website, which isn’t super-duper contemporary, doesn’t work, pick up the phone and call).

Shikorina Pastries

Copy Link

Shikorina Pastries is a community-driven bakery in the heart of the Central District. Its classic apple, pumpkin, and berry pies will fit into any holiday dessert spread, but the Pop-Tart-style handpies are the real star. Rotating flavors include salted caramel apple, strawberry, and fresh blueberry matcha and can be bought individually or up to a whole dozen, so they’ll be enough for everyone at your holiday gatherings.

Hood Famous Cafe and Bar

Copy Link

The Chinatown-International District’s popular Filipino cafe may have developed a following for its famed ube cheesecake, but diners shouldn’t sleep on some of the other items from James Beard Award semifinalist Chera Amlag. There’s a creamy buko pie and a turon (banana lumpia) cream pie... need we say more? Available for online preorders.

Buddha Bruddah Seattle

Pie might not be the first thing you’d think of from this Hawaiin-style mixed plate barbecue spot, but pay attention the loaded bake case up front. Even after a massive kalua pork plate, you have to save room for the buttery, coconuty chocolate haupia pie. More classic iterations of banana, coconut, and chocolate cream pies are also available.

Baked from the Hart

Copy Link

This Mount Baker shop has been operating since 2016, but owner Bill Hart’s baking experience goes back decades, and that dedication shows in his delightful Southern-influenced creations. His chess pies (in flavors such as key lime, coconut, and lemon) are critically acclaimed, and everything is available for online order.
