Fall means that pie season is upon Austin. Take a flaky pie crust, fill it with fruit, custard, chocolate, cream, pumpkin, potatoes, or really, any combination of fillings, and voilà, it’s the perfect baked good.

Here is Eater’s guide to the perfect places for everyone’s pie needs. There are the small but fully packed ones from Tiny Pies, gorgeous pies from Sugar Mama’s Bakeshop, perfect barbecue accompaniments from Cake and Spoon, and others. This update includes tiny shop Mum Foods and Pieous.

Even though Eater said farewell to Royer’s Pie Haven four years ago, fans can still trek over to Round Top for those amazing junkberry pies and more.

For a pie road trip, scope out Eater’s guide to the best pie shops around the Hill Country. Otherwise, check out the city’s best dessert restaurants, bakeries, kolaches, cookies, and macarons.

If your favorite pie-slinging spot is missing below, let Eater know through the comments or through the tipline.
