Our mission for The Pie Hole exists today to provide our customers with a great cafe experience. We believe this experience first starts with great pie and coffee, sourcing primarily local high quality ingredients and custom roasting organic and ethically growncoffee to demanding specifications. The Pie Hole hand makes all items from scratch. We focus on responsibly sourced ingredients that lends a quality to the already authentic American experience of great pie and coffee that is sadly all too uncommon. We believe a pie shop is a living institution, a neighborhood gathering spot, and a welcoming environment for all. The Pie Hole is a family run small business that seeks to be the best part of everyone's day.
The Pie Hole is located on Traction Avenue near the popular German sausage restaurant Wurstküche, in the building formally home to the famous Joel Bloom's corner market in the center of Los Angeles famed arts district. The Pie Hole offers sweet and savory pies along with other baked items that complement the artisanal coffee program roasted exclusivley for The Pie Hole LA's own Ground Work coffee roasters, who provide our custom blends which are organic and Rain Forest Alliance Certified and then roasted to exact specification. We strongly believe working local provides better relationships and the freshest and most delicious coffee possible.
The Pie Hole is a family run organization hatched out of the dreams of a mother and son, Becky Grasley and Matthew Heffner who long dreamed of opening a place where they can share their family secret: pie is love. They roped Sean Brennan in to be their business partner and literally tied Matty's fiance Lindsay Hollister to the cash register and set out to leverage every favor and free hand to build what is now The Pie Hole (thanks friends!). Matty and Becky hold the largest pie recipe book you have ever laid eyes on, and is in a safety deposit box in Switzerland. Matty learned pie as a youngster and part of the family tradition but is a tradesman at heart: there is nothing he can't build from scratch. He is a science fiction nerd, just ask to see his newest ink. Sean is lactose intolerant and likes pie partly because it isn't a cupcake but mostly because it has an authentic story and is what he calls 'real food'. Sean has been in the service industry for over a hundred years as a bar tender, wine director, consultant, and general manager, and is passionate about food, fine wine, hip hop, and the world champion Green Bay Packers. We all love to chat, come on in and say hi!
Chef Beth Kellerhals grew up in the Midwest where everyone thinks about what's for dinner at lunch. Beth grew up mostly thinking about dessert. After college she traveled to China where she studied Chinese and tried to learn kung fu and Chinese calligraphy. She also acquired a small oven and started baking for friends. When she returned from China she enrolled in The French Pastry School in her hometown of Chicago. She's worked at Hot Chocolate, the legendary Hatfields, Drago Centro and then with Roy Choi where she opened lauded A-Frame and most recently Sunny Spot. She truly believes that a slice of coconut cream pie can solve any problem.
The process of opening an LA's first authentic pie shop was a daunting one, with thousands of hours of building, testing pie, tasting coffee, and bringing together an amazing team to provide the greatest possible pie experience known to man. We are fun, don't take ourselves too seriously (the pie and coffee is very serious), and love to have a chat with all our customers, who inevitably become regulars.
Want to be part of our team? We look first for good people with a great laugh and the scary work ethic of service industry professionals. We love people with coffee and baking experience, but can be convinced otherwise. Email us your resume in the body of the email and a paragraph about why you and we make three: email@example.com
