The holidays must necessarily look much different this year. As Gov. Jay Inslee stated, large family gatherings are simply not a safe option with COVID cases spiking to alarming levels across the state. Still, many can celebrate Thanksgiving with members of their own household or solo, and a great pie is a must at any dinner table, even for more Zoom-oriented conversations. Here are just a few of the best local options for takeout.

A La Mode Pies

Phinney Ridge's pie haven, which expanded to West Seattle, has some wonderful rotating seasonal concoctions, including a brûléed pumpkin for the holidays, the Blue Hawaiian (blueberries, crushed pineapple, and toasted coconut), and Mexican chocolate mousse. Both locations are open for online orders.

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). There are even some cocktails available to go for those who want to booze it up with dessert. Takeout only

Simply Soulful

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. They come in 9-inch and 5-inch tins, and are available for preordering via phone.

Macrina Bakery

Known city-wide for some of the best bread around, the biggest fall craving the company bakes up is for its mini maple apple pie, topped with maple sugar. Other seasonal offerings include a brandied orange pecan pie and a streusel pumpkin. They’re available for delivery through DoorDash.

Hood Famous Cafe and Bar

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-nominated chef Chera Amlag. There’s a creamy buko pie and a haupia pie bar sprinkled with candied pumpkin seeds that must not be missed. Available for online preorders.

Baked from the Hart

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 orders.

Though many fans come to this West Seattle bakery (with locations in Burien and on Capitol Hill) for the twice-baked croissants, the multitalented shop also produces an impressive selection of rotating and seasonal pies and tarts. Dutch apple, coconut creme, and chocolate pecan are just a few favorites. Available for online preorders.

Cakes of Paradise

The name may say “cakes” but the menu screams “pie,” with bright, Hawaiian-influenced options like mango cream cheese and macadamia nut cream pie. It’s a bit of a welcome departure for a city filled with more flaky-crust varieties and local fruit. Available for online orders, but some of the bakery’s treats can also be found for retail at Uwajimaya.

High 5 Pie

This former Capitol Hill pie shop is now housed at Burien’s Salmon Creek Cafe, but it’s still serving up a selection of classics, from banana cream to cherry to key lime. And the marionberry crumb is always on point. All are available for online preorders.
