Ask an Arlington local where to get a top-notch pie and you may well find yourself being directed to Livin The Pie Life. Located on North Glebe Road, this pie shop has a reputation for making everything in small batches and mixing ingredients by hand, which means that whatever pie you choose will taste like it was home-baked just for you.
Choose a classic fruit pie filled with your choice of cherries, apples, or berries for a traditional taste, or go for one of the shop’s more innovative creations, like boozy toasted pecan pie, or salted caramel chocolate chess. Whatever you choose, you should be aware that handmaking every pie means that the storefront has limited quantities available, and flavors can sell out quickly. Regulars say it’s best to order ahead if you’ve got a specific need or special occasion coming up.
