Attention pie fanatics: Pi Day is the perfect excuse to enjoy a slice of pie from Kansas City’s finest bakeries. Here are three spots to scoop up a slice to celebrate the holiday.
Banana cream, lemon meringue, moan nut: If you want it, Rye‘s got it. The restaurant, owned by James Beard Award winning chefs Colby and Megan Garrelts, is home to some of Kansas City’s best pies. Strawberry rhubarb has recently been added to the seasonal menu, and slices of pie are only $4 during the restaurant’s happy hour from 4 to 6 p.m.

This Crossroads-area restaurant is known as a cozy brunch spot, but don’t overlook their much-raved about pies. The peach pie has become a favorite among customers, and the blueberry is worth mentioning, too. Order the pie with a scoop of their homemade ice cream and you won’t regret it.
For a true diner atmosphere, head to Town Topic‘s Broadway and Baltimore locations for a slice of icebox pie. The pies, made by local wholesale bakery Golden Boy Pies, are available all day for $3.49 a slice. The slices come cold, but the cooks can heat them up on the griddle for extra flavor and warmth.
