Livin’ The Pie Life

Location: 2166 N. Glebe Rd, Arlington

The pies at this cozy shop near the intersection of Glebe Road and Lee Highway will give Grandma’s traditional recipes some stiff competition, with flavors like chocolate-peppermint mousse, apple-caramel-crumb, salted-caramel chess and brown-butter-coconut. But pie isn’t the only thing on the menu. Alternately, try the bakery’s massive holiday coconut cake, or place an order for a batch of its highly-acclaimed chocolate chip cookies. You’ll find savory selections, too, including vegetarian mincemeat pies and three different kinds of quiche—perfect for throwing in the oven to quickly satisfy hungry house guests.
