This New Pie Shop Just Opened On West 3rd Street
There’s nothing better than a good old-fashioned success story – except for maybe a fresh slice of pie. Now, both things come together with the opening of the new Winston Pies shop on West 3rd Street.
Housed inside the former Juice Served Here space, Winston Pies sells hand pies, slices, and whole pies to go, as well as other baked goods and coffee. Born from owner Brianna Abrams’ family tradition of baking together, the shop name was inspired by Abrams’ hometown of Winston-Salem, NC (or “Winston” as the locals call it). After moving to Los Angeles, Abrams fell in love with the fresh fruits available year-round in Southern California, and decided to start experimenting with fruit pies in her home kitchen.
From there, things took off, with friends and family raving about her baked goods and asking Abrams to open up an official store. That first store opened in Brentwood shortly after, and the West 3rd location is Winston Pies’ second location.
Each Winston Pie is handmade from scratch using only all-natural ingredients, sourced locally, using organic produce whenever possible. Flavors range from classic Apple Pie, Blueberry and Key Lime Pie, to seasonal additions like Pumpkin Pie, and Orchard Peach and Nectarine. Another fan favorite that we spotted on the menu: the Caramel Twix pie, Abrams’ twist on the Twix candy bar, made with a shortbread crust, chocolate ganache layer, and caramel filling. Gluten-free and vegan options are also available, so there really is something for everyone.
From her little kitchen bakery to this new spot on West 3rd Street, Abrams is proof that a big dream – and a lot of hard work – will go a long way, following her passion to bring high-quality, artisan pie to Los Angeles. Welcome Winston, to the neighborhood!
Winston Pies is located at 8366 West 3rd Street. Open late till 10pm on Sunday-Thursday, and till 11pm on Friday and Saturday for your late night fix.
