So I'm not going to lie here and tell you that it's so easy-peasy to find parking around here. It's not. In fact, the parking sucks in NoHo altogether. Persist and have patience my friends, and you
will find a place, I promise, and it will be worth it. Nestled in the heart of the NoHo Arts District, this cozy little cafe will delight pie lovers both sweet and savory. Are you a fan of Stumptown coffee? Look no further, ROP has it in
huge steaming cups for only $1.50! Mismatched easy chairs, a reclaimed wood counter and lots of tables and chairs are yours for the asking. Check out the glass display cases (filled to the brim with fresh baked pies, scones, quiche, shortbread, bars, cookies,
and other delights) before you order. You won't want to risk missing anything. Our favorite quiche was from a place called Cafe Swiss in Beverly Hills that closed many years ago. Last night we were lamenting about how no one has ever been able
to duplicate that quiche...ever. Hello, Republic of Pie Ham & Swiss Quiche ($5.25). This was by far the most delicious quiche since Cafe Swiss. That is quite a high standard to live up too. Chunks of ham and tons of swiss perfectly browned made this
hard to split. So, naturally, I had to go and order another piece. I made my way up to the counter again and sheepishly ordered the Bacon Quiche. ($5.25). This time I was treated to a savory pie with sharp cheddar. Over. The. Top. Before
they had to wheel me out of there, I did manage to have a piece of Cookies n' Cream Pie. ($5.25) The crust is so flaky and tender, that eating this was truly a slice of heaven. Homemade whipped cream adorned the top and the filling was light and creamy.
A thin layer of graham cracker lined the bottom. Wash it all down with a glass of orange water and waddle on out. Be sure to come back for Banana Cream Pie, Turkey Chili, Chicken Pot Pie, and the Potato, Leek, & Goat Cheese Quiche. You know
I will! Republic of Pie 11118 Magnolia Blvd. North Hollywood, (818) 308 7990
