Pi(e) Day in Long Beach

Pi(e) Day is here, as it is every March 14–i.e. 3-14–offering the opportunity to appreciate both math (Pi is 3.14) and dessert (Pie is scrumptious). Finding great pie in Long Beach is a simple equation, readily available at some of the city’s oldest, most beloved eateries, many of which offer great Pi Day specials. Here’s a slice of some great places to enjoy Pi(e) Day, every day.

KEY LIME, Laurie’s Pie Bar

Laurie’s Pie Bar (450 Pine Ave) not only offers all manner of sweet pies made from scratch–Whiskey Peach to purple wonder Ube Coconut–but also savory pot pies and pies for your pet. Their most popular is the tart and magnificent Key Lime pie, complete with handmade graham cracker crust. For Pi Day, they’re offering $3.14 Key Lime Pie Shots for the first 100 guests–limit one per person. Pie Bar’s Frankenpie option allows you to make your own pie by picking six separate slices and, for Pi Day, if you buy five slices, you’ll get the sixth free!

LEMON LUSH, Bake ‘N Broil

BANBERRY, Polly’s Pies

Polly’s Pies (3490 Atlantic Ave.) pie menu is highly curated, leaning heavily toward the classics: apple, cherry, chocolate cream, etc. Still, their signature pie is an amazing amalgam of strawberries and banana called, wait for it, Banberry, which combines banana creme filling, topped with fresh strawberries, all of it ringed with a healthy band of real whipped cream. On Pi Day, if you dine in at Polly’s and order an entree you’ll receive a free slice of pie for dessert.
