Pie Feeling: Knowrealitypie

On this Pi Day, it's 3.14. We celebrate one of the worst named, but one of the most awarded pie stores in LA. Knowrealitypie of Eagle Rock, 5106 Townsend Ave Los Angeles, CA 90041 is a small store on the corner of a neighborhood. And today they are having a special deal, 10am-5pm, $3.14 for mini pies and $3.14 slices, while they last and mister or sister, they don't.

5106 Townsend Ave Los Angeles, CA 90041
Usual hours

Wednesdays,12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Saturdays-Sundays, 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
*They close when pies run out, so check their social media pages
or call right before going for updates.

We tried the much vaunted pie place for the first time over the weekend. We were in luck, they still had pies, something that doesn't happen very often. They sell out before their closing time, constantly. With that knowledge we recommend checking their social media feeds that tell when they sell out or calling if you're going to be taking your time to get there.
What you're getting there is a small personal pie or slice, going for $6. It's personal as they're all made by the same person, fresh, the day you buy it. They single baker of the pies is up around 3am for you to get the pie the day of.
The menu is very differed, they have classics, they have meat pies, they have something you'll want to taste...if you can make it there in time. We tried the Lemon Drop Lavender and a peachy one. The Lemon pie was a precise puckering pleasure. The peachy one was filled with fresh fruit.
The flavors of pie stay for about three months, so you have a large window to try them before they're gone.

Knowrealitypie has earned a lot of awards, constantly winning the KCRW pie contest, you'll have to decide if they should win an award on your own. We just wish we could have tried chocolate, but it was already out.
