Order something sweet to enjoy on the couch

Pie is one of those rare foods that feels appropriate both in good times and in bad, a delicate work of craftsmanship that’s also homey and unpretentious. While some of Chicagos pie makers have shelved their tins for the duration of Illinois’s shelter-in-place order, other bakers are still offering their sweet pies, ranging from classic and comforting to colorful and creative, for carryout, curbside pickup, and delivery. Hours and offerings are subject to change, so call ahead or check social media for the latest updates.
