Happy Pi Day!
It's the day we celebrate the monumental contribution to mathematics first conceived of by William Jones... and used to find a measurement with a circle. It's now become tradition to commemorate the moment with yummy dessert pies. And of course there's another great type of pie: pizza! For a roundup for places to get a great piece of pizza, check out Pi Day Pizza Pies.
For sweet treat pies, Tollgate Inn and Bakery in Sandy is the place to go. Their bakery specializes in all sorts of scratch made goodies, pies included. The Dutch Apple is awesome. For a more locally inspired flavor, check out the Mountain Berry.

If you're looking for gluten free and/or vegan options, then head over to Kyra's Bakeshop in Lake Oswego. Her shop is a completely gluten-free facility.

Fir Point Farms in Aurora is another spot known for their delicious sweet treats made fresh in their on-farm bakery each day. The pies are no exception, and they offer a great variety of them. Plus there are a ton of farm-fun activities for the kids, so they can work off the energy they'll get from their pie.
At Cindy's Cafe & Catering you can stop in for freshly baked strawberry rhubarb, peach, marionberry, and apple pies every day.
