5 Pie Shops to Celebrate International Pi Day
Math is one subject that is loathed by nearly every kid at some point in their lives. Whether it’s your times tables, fractions or the quadratic equation, math tested our intellect, and sometimes our spirits. It’s time for math to give back. This March 14th, take advantage of math and celebrate Pi Day. As 3.14 approaches this Tuesday, what better way to celebrate than with pie! Here are some prime places around the city to find a pie and indulge.
Peace Pies is the perfect place to find delicious vegan pie options. With choices like Cosmic Coconut Cream Pie and Alive Apple Pie, your pie cravings will certainly be satisfied here–and with a little less guilt. Both of these pies are just $5, and you can check the display case in store for more dessert specials. Find a shop in Ocean Beach and Encinitas, as well as a stand at local farmer’s markets in Hillcrest, Little Italy, and Leucadia.
This dessert paradise has everything you could possibly want: including pies. They sell individual pies, so you’ll have an excuse not to share with anybody.

Head to Little Italy on Tuesday for a truly extraordinary Pi Day experience.
With this clever of a name, it’s hard to imagine getting a bad pie from this place in Encinitas. With both dessert pies and pies you can enjoy for breakfast and lunch, you’ll have a hard time deciding what to order.
