Four & Twenty Blackbirds

The two South Dakota–reared sisters who opened Four & Twenty Blackbirds learned pie-baking from their grandma, and her expert instruction is evident in varieties like lemon chess, rhubarb custard and salted caramel apple enveloped in an exquisitely flaky crust. Linger at one of the comfy communal tables long enough, and your kids are bound to request a second slice—but if you want to take home a whole pie, you'll need to order it at least 48 hours in advance.

Good pies, but I can't say I've found one yet that I love. None of them are particularly sweet, which I guess some people like, but I just don't find the balance to ever really be right. Don't get me wrong, I'll never turn down a trip to Four & Twenty, the vibe here is great and everyone is really friendly and I'm excited for the new location in Prospect Heights. Just give me a sweet, gooey chocalte-y unhealthy for me pie and leave the healthy oats out of it. :)

The OG pie place that started a trend. It's been emulated time and time again for good reason.

The fact that it's a little off the beaten path means you're saving yourself from ridiculous lines, instagramming tourists and running out of the pies you want. Make sure you try the apple!

Relaxed place with some kind of countryside café vibe and delicious pies!! Flavours are seasonal but there's always a good option and nice mixes like chocolate/pink pepper!
