5 places to get pie
The holidays are here, and that means pie. Pretend you’re Special Agent Dale Cooper at Twede’s Cafe and belly up with a cup of coffee and a slice of warm pie.
1. Sisters Restaurant
2804 Grand Ave.
A homey, Everett family-owned establishment since 1983. They make the pies from scratch every morning, and serve Seattle’s Zoka Coffee. Brick walls and tall ceilings, this is a nice place to catch up on local visual art.
2. Despi Delight Bakery
3713 Broadway Ave.
Despi Delight is known for their insanely delicious doughnuts and their out-of-this-world custom cakes, and their pies are just as incredible. All made fresh by their crazy-talented bakers, get a whole pie or sample a few of their mini pies to find your favorite.
3. Karl's Bakery & Cafe
2814 Wetmore Ave.
This cute little bakery has high-backed booths and wood-paneled walls. The pastries and pies are in a glass case and you can order espresso, too. This is a great place to post up with a newspaper and watch the Funko tourists stroll by.
4. The New Mexicans
1416 Hewitt Ave.
Known for their rich gravy and New Mexican menu, these folks know how to serve up some of the best pie in town. A few classics to try: Oreo chocolate cream, Butterfinger chocolate cream, or Reese's chocolate peanut butter cream.
5. The Totem Diner
4410 Rucker Ave.
Walking into the Totem feels like walking back in time - and straight into an episode of Twin Peaks. This place is a classic diner: deliciously greasy food, wait staff who call you 'hun,' and plenty of pie. Pie options change daily, so call if you're picky.
