Portland loves its baked goods. And pie — that magical amalgam of pastry stuffed with fruit or meat and baked to warm, flaky perfection — is no exception. Normally, thanks to Portland’s nationally recognized baking scene, pastry aficionados can find pretty much any kind of pie here, so long as it’s in season; however, during the pandemic, cafes and bakeries have tightened up their pie by-the-slice offerings, instead opting for more pre-order options. Nonetheless, many bakeshops offer at least one pie by the slice in the case, from hazelnut-hued salted honey to lattice-topped apple.

Dedicated to the best pies and pie shops, the map below serves up some of Portland’s most exceptional slices. These include sweet pies filled with fruit, cream, and/or nuts as well as savory pies that cram as much meat as possible between two golden crusts. Note that crumbles, tarts, and cakes (including cheesecake) may receive some sort of recognition, but only if the shop already nails its pie.

The points on this map guide are not ranked; rather, they’re organized geographically.

1. Paiku

7425 N Leavitt Ave
Portland, OR 97203
(503) 860-4773
Visit Website

Originally a St. Johns pie cart, Paiku now serves its sweet, savory, and occasionally game-filled pies in a roomy cafe space in the North Portland neighborhood. Its rustic fruit pies, with flavors like lemon chess and chocolate walnut, consistently delight, but it’s really all about this cafe’s hard-to-find fillings, from a homey venison shepherd’s pie to the old school Italian Easter pie with Olympia Provisions ham and salami.

2. Woodlawn Coffee & Pastry

808 NE Dekum St
Portland, OR 97211
(503) 954-2412
Visit Website

Holding it down in Northeast, this airy bakery often has pie by-the-slice available, which change frequently and follow the seasons. When available, the rhubarb or chocolate chess are knockouts; when unavailable for slice, devotees can order it and others in 10-inch or 7-inch whole pies — the best bet is to stop in to place short-notice orders. During the holidays, it’s easy to spot flavors like pumpkin and bourbon-pecan on the counter.

3. Sweedeedee

Copy Link
5202 N Albina Ave
Portland, OR 97217
(503) 946-8087
Visit Website

This overwhelmingly popular North Albina bakery and cafe is worth visiting outside its peak breakfast and lunch hours for a slice of pie and a cup of coffee. At its cute ordering counter, customers can order a slice of pie crammed with Northwest fruit, from peak-season Marionberries to caramel-sweet pie pumpkin, as well as its killer salted honey. Pie flavors rotate often, but it’s extremely hard to go wrong.

(503) 244-2558

This Tigard-area diner has been a neighborhood standby for a cup of coffee and a slice of fruit pie since the ‘70s.

The real move is to start with the restaurant’s chicken pot pie, the platonic idea of comfort food.
