The cleverly named Venus Pie Trap is a sister restaurant to Venus Spirits & Kitchen. It serves all manners of pie from quiches, savory hand pies, and a rotating cast of sweet pies, all made by Edith’s pie company in Oakland, along with house-made pizza (that totally counts as pie, right?). 113 Esplanade, Aptos Tuesday - Sunday 7 am - 3 pm


The Buttery, a midtown favorite, is known for its classic flavors, such as apple pie served warm and coconut cream pie. While pre-orders for Thanksgiving pies are already closed, they will be selling whole pies along with slices of pie on the days leading up to Thanksgiving. 702 Soquel Ave, Santa Cruz 7 am - 5 pm Monday - Sunday


Gizdich ranch, located in Watsonville, is best known for its delicious ollalieberry pie, but they also have a wide variety of other flavors, including a seasonal lemon meringue pie that will knock your socks off. Visiting The ranch is a great way to spend a weekend afternoon as they also have a u-pick seasonal orchard, gift shop, and snack shack that serves sandwiches and fresh pressed apple cider. 55 Peckham Rd, Watsonville, 9 am - 5 pm Monday - Friday


Located just a few blocks from the beach in Capitola, Gayles bakery & rosticceria are what dreams are made of if you’re dreaming of a refreshing key lime pie with a healthy topping of homemade whipped cream. There’s still time to preorder a classic pumpkin pie for your holiday meal or switch it up with something equally as delicious as their fresh apple crumb pie. 504 Bay Ave, Capitola 6:30 am - 7:30 pm Monday - Friday


With two locations servicing Santa Cruz county, companion bake shop is not to be missed. They’ve proven to be a standout thanks in part to their unique flavors and emphasis on fresh local ingredients. They serve a plethora of mouth-watering pies, such as lemon buttermilk. Preorder for thanksgiving pies is available through their website or by stopping by their locations. 2341 mission Dr, Santa Cruz & 7486 Soquel Dr, Aptos 8 am - 4 pm Tuesday - Sunday
