“Pies and Doughnuts and Pastries, oh my!”
Reviewed 24 January 2013

This is our go-to place after church on Sundays. Always fresh. Pies and other bakery items are yummy too. easy parking and in-and-out service. We'll be back!

“Pilgrim Pies Belmont--Not what is was”
Reviewed 1 November 2012

I have been going to Pilgrim Pies (Belmont,CA) for 25 years. They had the best donuts in the world! Freshly made every day. Pies were a holiday tradition for my family. Management changed in 2012. What a disappointment! The change was evident with the first bite of a donut hole. New owners using different oil and I do not believe oil is changed daily. Donuts have a funny taste that stays long after. Cakes and cupcakes are regulary stale and frosting has heavy lard taste. Pies fall flat and crust is dense and has same funny taste as donuts. No holiday pies from Pilgrim Pies this year or ever again. Sadly, this is the end of Pilgrim Pies in my opinion.

“Amazing Donuts”
Reviewed 23 June 2012

The donuts are amazingly amazing. The chicken pot pie is to die for, but you should order those in advance because they take too long to make. Their fruit pies are very good too. But the best thing they have (of course) is their donuts, which they make fresh every morning and are to die for. For new customers, I would try the bear claws and the chocolate french crullers.
