Your Guide to Pi(e) Day in Milwaukee

Here are some local spots to get your pastry fill on Tuesday, March 14.

YEAH, PEOPLE REALLY celebrate the mathematical constant pi (π) with pie on 3.14. Because it’s fun! And delicious. I always advocate for pie, regardless of the day. But especially on Pi Day. 

1. Honeypie

2643 S. KINNICKINNIC AVE. | 414-489-7437

Honeypie is open on a rare Tuesday, but only offering coffee/cocktails and slices and whole pies (not the full menu). They make specialty, cream and fruit pies. I can’t tell you exactly which flavors will be available (and I can imagine they will be selling pretty quickly) but examples of flavors they do make include chocolate pistachio cream, salted caramel, blueberry, apple-cherry, caramel apple, whiskey walnut pecan, bourbon fudge and banana cream. Open 9 a.m.-9 p.m.

2. The Bake Sale

6923 W. BECHER ST. | 414-543-4230

This West Allis spot – which sells baked goods from other local vendors and pies made in-house – is offering options for walk-in availability, including fruit and cream pies, but it’s first come, first serve. Pie sizes are 5-inch and 9-inch. Open 6:30 a.m.- 2 p.m. 



What’s Brew City’s best? We’ve picked 16 of our favorite Milwaukee craft beers for a March Madness-style tournament, but it’s up to you to pick the winner! Will it be bright and hoppy? Dark and malty? A zippy lager? Every one is worthy of the title; who will claim the sudsy crown?

3. Elegant Farmer


Famous for its ultra-sweet Apple Pie Baked in a Paper bag, the baker is offering a $3.14 discount on 8-inch paper bag apple pies through March 14. Open 9 a.m.-6 p.m. 

4. Aggie’s Bakery and Cake Shop

7328 W. GREENFIELD AVE, WEST ALLIS | 414-482-1288

Head over for a 5-inch apple, cherry, blueberry or banana cream for $7.50 each. Only while supplies last. 7 a.m.-6 p.m.

5. SmallPie

2504 E. OKLAHOMA AVE. | 414-763-7067

This offshoot of Honeypie will have sweet and savory hand pies, and cream and fruit pie slices in various flavors. As at Honeypie, I can’t say which flavors they’ll have available but I noticed that their Pie of the Month is The Caramel Dee-Lightful, inspired by the Girl Scout Caramel Delite cookie.

6. Hatched


You can pick up Hatched’s hand pies today at Vennture Brew Co., Canary Coffee Bar or 1848 Coffee. Hours for each location can be found on Hatched’s website
