Pi Day Celebrations with a Tasty Pie from Local Bakeries

Who doesn’t love pie? As this numerical holiday approaches, why not celebrate with a tasty pie. Celebrated every year on 3/14 to highlight the significance of discovering the circumference of a circle, and a never ending number. Check out this list of tasty pie shops in Chicago by CBCI chefs. Be sure to support local businesses!

First Slice Pie Cafe

First Slice Pie Cafe is loved for their chocolate peanut butter pie. The apple pie which Food & Wine named one of the best in the country is another must try item on the menu. With multiple locations in the Chicagoland area such as Ravenswood, Albany Park, Andersonville, and Evanston, it’s easy to get your hands on one of these delicious treats.

Bang Bang Pie & Biscuits

Bang Bang is popular in Chicago with two locations in Logan Square and Ravenswood. Our favorite pie here is the classic chocolate pecan inside a graham crust. Another popular item on the menu is the honey pie with lavender sea salt.

Hoosier Mama Pie Co.

Hoosier Mama Pie Co is known for their flakey and buttery crust. Highly considered Chicago’s finest pie makers, they often switch up the menu. Our favorite pies here are triple berry and s’mores.
