Bang Bang Pie Shop

The food truck-turned storefront specializes in two things: pie and biscuits. While the pie list is streamlined (four to five slices a day, that's it), the biscuit menu is much bigger, with biscuit sandwiches, biscuits drowning in gravy and biscuits piled with eggs and chorizo, among other iterations. The ambiance is a little more charming than the food, because while the picnic tables and blue and white checkered papers atop faux paper plates are ideal for Instagramming, the dry biscuits leave something to be desired. Pie's the way to go, and if you need caffeinating, the iced coffee is dispensed via tap.

Absolutely delicious! Went for lunch and ordered a grilled cheese with tomato soup, was the perfect combo for a rainy chilly day. Their menu is ever changing so you'll never know what fresh homemade goodies will be on the menu. One thing is for sure, the delicious biscuits and jam will always hit the spot. Snagging a spot to sit inside took a bit of time, but was worth the short wait. I'm looking forward to full time patio weather season to come back and enjoy the big back patio area.

The cutest little breakfast spot in Logan Square! The place is small, so make sure to get there early on the weekends or you will face a line out the door. That being said, the etiquette here seems to be enjoy your meal and move along to make room for others, although I've never felt rushed by the friendly and attentive staff!

On to the food: the menu for spring is absolutely delicious. Coffee and creme pie - to die for. The biscuit with vegetarian gravy is perfect comfort food and even better topped with an egg. The avocado biscuit was tasty, although the generous spread of avocado somewhat overwhelmed the already dense biscuit. Can't wait to return to enjoy more pie on their adorable back patio!

I LOVE Bang Bang. The biscuits are the fluffiest (I love the Farmers' Biscuit), but sometimes I just get an extra side biscuit because I can't get enough (and then I can't move, but hey). Sitting outside is positively delightful in summer. And obviously their daily baked pies are the bomb. Also, this is some of the nicest service I have had anywhere in Chicago. It's an easy stop just a short walk from the California Blue Line.

It doesn't get much cuter than pie at Bang Bang. And hey, their food menu isn't too shabby either. Be sure to come prepared to wait in line for a seat when the patio isn't open. Even so, the food is well worth it.

One of the best biscuits in the city, dense yet fluffy and served with fresh butter and jam on their own or with a variety of toppings. Their pie flavors can be hit or miss but still usually a safe bet for something delicious and sweet. Their lemonade, with a variety of fruity flavors, is the perfect way to cool down during the summer while enjoying their adorable backyard garden.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, their pies are great, but the dense buttery biscuits at Bang Bang will probably change your life and likely your overall health. While the weekend lines here are a pain, their backyard Pie Garden is as precious as it sounds and worth the wait.

The backyard space here is one of the cutest spots in Logan Square, perfect for an afternoon spent eating pie and drinking iced coffee.
