Ah autumn, the time of year when eating a hearty dessert with every meal is acceptable and often encouraged in the name of comfort. Whether you’re about seasonal sweet treats or a year-round dessert hound, delicious pie is a unifying common-ground! There’s really no way to go wrong with pies, but if you’re gonna indulge you might as well do so with the best pies Atlanta restaurants have to offer.
Note: We know there’s no better comfort food than your mom’s homemade pie, but unless she’s prepared to serve the masses, we’ll have to stick to these fine options for now.
Best Seasonal Pie: Caramel Turtle
In case the name caramel turtle doesn’t paint a clear enough picture, think gooey chocolate, thick strips of caramel, brownie chunks, and crumbled pecans enveloped in a buttery shortbread crust.

Best Seasonal Pie: Toasted Pumpkin Spice
The Pie Hole weaves a web of flavors into every pie, their Toasted Pumpkin Spice special is no exception! Lustrous pumpkin filling is stuffed into a Biscoff cookie crust and topped off with a divine toasted marshmallow medley. This seasonal pumpkin pie is the perfect holiday hybrid: great for Halloween and suitable for Thanksgiving!
Best Seasonal Pie: Traditional Pecan
Okay, so we lied a little with this one, the pecan pie is available year-round, but tastes especially good as we transition from summer to autumn. The folks at Mary Mac’s are famous for offering all kinds of southern sweets, but their pecan pie is a slice of crumbly, syrupy goodness that is not to be missed. Their peanut butter pie (pictured) and key lime pie are close runner-ups.
