You might expect to walk into Lillstreet Art Center and be assaulted by paint fumes. But with First Slice Café inside, you’ll instead inhale the aroma of fresh-baked pie (red wine and poached pear, and standbys like apple). First Slice donates part of its profits to help feed the hungry, and uses local ingredients so you won’t feel as if you’re sacrificing anything. In fact, we’d return for the chicken-and-blue-cheese sandwich no matter who was benefiting from our tab.

First Slice should really be called Slice of Heaven. They've got some seriously good eats here. Try the tabasco cream pie in the fall. You won't be disappointed.
