Celebrate National Pi (Pie) Day in Tempe

Celebrate National Pi (Pie) Day at these favorite Tempe spots

Whether you’re celebrating the glorified National Pi Day (3.14) or looking to satisfy a craving or just something different to consume, we’ve got the best pies in Tempe! From savory hand pies to classic fruit pies to a play on words with pies, we’ve got them all. Here are some great places to get pie in Tempe on National Pi Day or any other day that ends in ‘y.’

Definition of pie: a baked dish of fruit, or meat and vegetables, typically with a top and base 

Cornish Pasty Co 

960 W. University Dr. #103, Tempe, AZ 85281 | (480) 894-6261 
A name you don’t naturally think of when it comes to pie… but we’re looking at the definition. We love food that you can hold in your hand so why not call upon a great hand pie from Cornish Pasty Co. like the Lovely Bit of Salmon or the Greek (available with chicken or as a vegetarian dish). Y-U-M. So good you must separate “yum” to emphasize the flavor boasting from their handcrafted delights. 

Squarz Bakery & Cafe 

975 E. Elliot Rd. #103, Tempe, AZ 85284 | (480) 788-8776 
From sweet to savory, the super cute Squarz Bakery & Cafe serves scrumptious hand pies. We definitely recommend their hand-held Chicken Pot Pie. They also have breakfast “pies” (i.e. pastries and tarts) and delicious croissants (Oreo or Red Velvet are two fave flavors). As a busy person, I love something that’s easy to enjoy on the go.

Tracy Dempsey Originals 

1325 W. University Dr., Tempe, AZ 85281 | (602) 376-9021
Featuring a delectable selection of homemade treats, cookies, cakes, snacks, and of course a variety of hand pies, Chef Tracy Dempsey’s Tempe bakery is a local favorite. If you’re looking to celebrate, order one of their fabulous pis by Tuesday, March 9 at 3:14 p.m. Choose from Kentucky Derby Pie, cherry red wine pie and lemon meringue pie — $28 each (or $31.40 if you want to stick with a theme….) 

Sauce Pizza & Wine 

705 S. Myrtle Ave., Tempe, AZ 85281 | (480) 597-4260
