For the rest of us, there’s Pie Hole. But for the NoHo crowd, there’s Republic of Pie. Which is a bit of an institution in the starving actor / aspiring screenwriter way that Pie Hole could never be.
For one, the space is deceivingly large. Full of tables and chairs and couches and laptops. It embraces that neighborhood, community aesthetic, a little mismatched, but in a friendly way. On the walls, artwork from local artists. In the evenings, music from local musicians. But we’re here for the pie, and the pie does not disappoint. Sweet, savory, and a slew of caffeinated selections to match. And (probably because people park here all day), they also have a full menu of breakfast and lunch options.
But idk, if you feed me enough pie, I might be inspired to spit out a screenplay too.
