SoCal, What's Good?

Pie Life Pizza

What it is:
If the words "pizza window" sound intriguing, get yourself to Pie Life Pizza as soon as you can. The tiny Pasadena pizza shop offers low-priced slices and whole pies in a variety of topping combinations, served through a window by an always-friendly staff member.
Why it's cool:
In a region where so many restaurants try so hard to be hip, Pie Life’s unassuming vibes — paired with excellent New York-style pizza — make it genuinely cool.
You should know:
While pizza at Pie Life is abundant, parking is limited. Don't plan on getting a spot in the lot Pie Life shares with Pasadena favorite Jones Coffee; instead, snag street parking or take the Gold Line to Fillmore Station and walk up.
