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. Thanks to our fair city’s sweet baking scene, you can find pretty much any kind of pie you desire, so long as it’s in season.

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.

Portland, OR 97217

Those looking to order a whole pie can place orders by phone; they'll come in a legit Pyrex, which you can return to the cafe for five in-store dollars.
