Even just the smallest bite of pie can turn your whole day around. When you’re looking for a slice, these shops are the upper crust of Chicago.
Hoosier Mama Pie Company
This little artisanal bakery whips up old-school pies from scratch with only the best ingredients available. They serve both sweet and savory pies, plus the menu changes daily, so you never know what you’re going to get! You’ll have to come back often to get a taste of as many as possible.
First Slice Pie Café
Not only does this place serve up mouthwatering homemade pies, but also provides weekly home-cooked, restaurant-quality meals to about 4,000 people in need every month. You have to try their Apple Pie—it was featured as one of Food & Wine’s best apple pies in America.
Bang Bang Pie and Biscuits
Diversity and creativity are the name of the game at this quirky spot. Everyone can enjoy these seasonal pies, as there are both vegan and gluten-free options. Though it started as a food truck, it is now a brick and mortar store that also serves up coffee roasted in-house. The service is also phenomenal. Say, “Hi!” to Cheryl for us!
