Pi Day: Best Places to Get Pie on Chicago's North Shore

Mark your calendars — March 14 is Pi Day! While that’s not exactly a celebration of the delicious dessert, why not make it one? This month, as you try to recite as many digits of pi as you can remember (3.14159…), make your way to one of these restaurants or bakeries for a tasty slice of sweet (or savory!) pie.

 

Sweety Pies Bakery

This family-owned bakery and cafe uses only the best ingredients to make their homemade desserts. You can order their signature pies in large (9”) or mini (6”) and flavors like Apple Pie Crisp, Double Crust Apple, Chocolate Cashmere, and Crocodile (made with pecans, chocolate, and rum).

Bob Chinn’s Crab House
