What others say: “The recent opening of Pop Pie Co. is excellent news for the pie-starved populace of San Diego, whose options were previously few (and far-flung). The shop’s vision is to produce traditional single-serving pies, both sweet and savory, with a twist, crafted from quality ingredients that deliver maximum returns on flavor.” — Erin Jackson, Thrillist San Diego
