What night owls say: "House of Pies is THE late night spot, so if you're expecting to come to an empty place at 12 or 1 in the morning, you'll be surprised to see just how busy they are. The food is homey and comforting, as well as the building itself. I've been here on multiple occasions...Overall, I've had no problems with this place and will continue coming back for a late night snack." – Hailey P.
