Under the Crust brings adorably petite pies to the people with their equally adorable food truck. Find out where you can sample their mini pies by following them on Twitter.

Food obsessed San Diegans know that Rachel Caygill bakes up some of the best pies in the county. You can find her seasonal offerings at Banker’s Hill Bar + Resturant.

Not a fan of sweets? While it may not be what the organizers of National Pie Day had in mind, Ritual Tavern in the North Park neighborhood serves up a tasty Sheperd’s Pie in both traditional and vegan varieties.

Keep your taste buds on the ready for the opening of Soda & Swine in Normal Heights. The menu at the new venue is expected to feature apple pie topped with house-made soft-serve ice cream inspired by New York’s Momofuku Milk Bar.

About Candice

Foodie, craft beer nerd, shopaholic, music geek, photographer and contemporary art fan could all be used to describe me. I’m a big proponent of highlighting San Diego’s hidden gems and local businesses and breaking stereotypes about our city. We’re more than just sunshine and beaches (though those are nice, too!).

What would you do on your ideal San Diego Day?

Eating and shopping around my favorite neighborhoods: Golden Hill, South Park, North Park, Little Italy and Hillcrest. Then popping into one of our great art museums and capping off the night with some live music and a a local beer at The Casbah.

What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?

Does shopping count as an outdoor activity? Or checking out the public art around town, like at Chicano Park? I do love visiting the La Jolla tide pools in the summer and ice skating at the outdoor rinks that go up each winter.

Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?

Let's get one thing straight here: San Diego craft beer goes with everything, not just burgers. Though it is really good with a burger.

Latest music purchases for my iPod player are…

I’m lucky to be married to a music journalist, so advance copies of the newest albums are constantly available to me for free. But I can’t seem to stop playing the new album by CHVRCHES, and San Diego band Rocket from the Crypt have been on repeat a lot lately.
