The entrance to Simplethings Sandwich & Pie Shop.
A small sampling of their tiny "cutie pies" and small "simple pies". You may order full size pies as well but if you choose the miniature sized pies you can sample many wonderful flavors.
On my way to set up an event, I happened to see a charming little pie and sandwich shop on Third Street, just east of La Cienega. I was pleasantly surprised when I returned to check it out a few days later. It is one of the more appetizing cafes in L.A.
I love soup - even on hot days. The summer pea soup , which was that day's special was fragrant and light with just the right amount of spice. Their sandwiches are fresh and interesting with a twist. I want to return to try the avocado melt with roasted peppers, buttermilk bleu and apricot chutney and the made to order egg salad with sundried tomatoes on a pretzel roll. I enjoyed the Cobb salad with fresh roasted turkey, bacon and ripe avocado.
The best was yet to come... I had fun choosing which pies to taste for dessert. Since they can be eaten in two or three bites you don't need to choose just one. They are ALL delicious. Simplethings features many different flavors each day. A few of the more popular flavors are - salted caramel, banana cream, blueberry and strawberry rhubarb. They even have a pie sundae with Fosselman's ice cream.
