Every season is pie season in Portland! Find your favorite flavor at these delicious local pie spots.
Random Order Coffeehouse & Bakery
Likely Portland’s most award-winning pie maker, Random Order has been lauded by the likes of Food & Wine and Travel & Leisure; the latter even declared the bakery’s Tahitian vanilla salted caramel apple one of the best pies in America. Other favorites at this Alberta Arts District coffeehouse include boozy flavors like brandied peach and Kentucky bourbon salted pecan, as well as savory pot pies filled with slow-roasted chicken and seasonal veggies.
Since 2011, Lauretta Jean’s has grown from a humble farmers’ market booth to one of the city’s most cherished bakeries, known for both its flaky biscuit breakfast plates and its buttery handmade pies. A rotating menu features sophisticated seasonal fillings such as honey hazelnut, black-bottom coconut and rhubarb raspberry sour cream. Each pie is available a la mode with homemade ice cream.
Portland mainstay Pie Spot is best known for its ingenious “pie holes”: cupcake-sized single-serving pies, perfect for small appetites or folks who want to try a bite of every flavor. As you sample your way through pie holes filled with s’mores, brown butter pecan and banana cream with salted caramel, save room for extra treats like cinnamon toast crunch cookies and pie crust cinnamon rolls.
Petunia’s Pies and Pastries
Another Portland Farmers Market favorite, Petunia’s specializes in desserts that are not only delicious, but gluten-free and vegan, to boot. Pie lovers of all diets can share a slice of bumble berry peach filled with the best of Oregon’s summer bounty (raspberries, blueberries, Marionberries and peaches), topped with sugary streusel.
Blue-collar-inspired restaurant Tilt loves to tout its colossal burgers and eggy biscuit sandwiches, but don’t overlook the daily selection of old-fashioned fruit and cream pies. Better yet, upgrade to a pie shake, which is exactly what it sounds like: A hefty slice of handcrafted pie (choose any flavor, from Marionberry to key lime to peanut butter Oreo) blended with ice cream.
Pacific Pie Company
You might expect all Portland pie shops to be inspired by a love of fresh Oregon berries, but Pacific Pie Company was actually born from a craving for Australian meat pies. Founded by a talented baker and her homesick Aussie husband, the eatery offers a long list of savory pies filled with roast lamb, pulled pork, green chicken curry and Moroccan chickpeas. For dessert, try an apple pie sundae or chocolate bourbon hazelnut pie shake.
Southeast Montavilla’s Bipartisan Café has two top priorities: community and pie. The cozy neighborhood gathering place offers a variety of flavors, including scrumptious vegan and gluten-free options, handmade and baked fresh daily. Whole pies are available for purchase without pre-order, but if you’re looking for something specific — say chocolate orange cream or pear candied ginger — you’ll want to order in advance.
