Los Angeles: The Pie Hole

Since we nabbed such a great parking spot in front of Eggslut, we didn't want to lose it.  Instead, we walked 20 minutes through some pretty sketch streets to get to The Pie Hole:


















It is a well documented fact that sketch neighborhoods all across America (or at least in all major cities across America) have either been hipsterized or are undergoing hipsterization.

Hence why hipster joints like The Pie Hole can be found at the edges of some pretty janky neighborhoods:


















Look at that long communal wooden table.  Paired with those metal chairs.

And this fat cup of soy latte ($3.75):


















Both the savory pies and the sweet pies at The Pie Hole sounded amazing.  We opted for sweet since we were still stuffed from breakfast at Eggslut.

While scanning the menu, I immediately zeroed in on the earl grey pie ($6.25):


















T and my sister didn't need much persuasion to agree.

The friendly lady at the counter recommended the Mexican chocolate ($5.50):


















The earl grey was light and fluffy and fragrant.  Subtly sweet and almost...refreshing.  The Mexican chocolate on the other hand, was dense and rich and oh-so-decadent.

Love the name.  Love the pies.

I would walk through crummy neighborhoods galore to get to The Pie Hole.
