The Eater Pumpkin Pie Heatmap: Where to Eat Right Now

View as Map

As we proceed into one of the best weeks of the year to be someone who loves pie, it's time to take a look at what's hot when it comes to an old Thanksgiving classic: the pumpkin pie. Here are 11 of America's hottest bakeries, pumping out their pumpkin pies all week long — from the first US outpost of Maison Kayser in New York to Las Vegas favorite Chocolate & Spice. Not to mention Dallas pop-up-turned-brick-and-mortar Emporium Pies with its Drop Dead Gourdgeous pumpkin pie. Some are still accepting last minute Thanksgiving pre-orders, while others are doing first come first served. Either way, be sure to get a pie.
