republic of pie

your favorite film school student’s favorite spot

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 if their generous selection of pies aren’t enough (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 of their espresso almond chocolate pie, I might be inspired to spit out a screenplay too.
