Year round, Hoosier Mama Pie Company in Ukrainian Village has an amazing array of quiches, savory pies and of course, sweet pies. The pie menu changes on a regular basis, but any time you step into this small shop, you’ll have plenty to pick from. In fact, you could have a whole meal of pies! Start with a quiche or a slice of savory pie, like chicken pot pie or beef extra stout pie. Then it’s on to dessert, with such delicious treats as chocolate cream, apple and passion fruit meringue. They also offer a deal when you nab a slice with a cup of coffee (for $6). Can’t pick which slice? Opt for a flight of slices, which is available only on Friday nights.

First Slice is more than a place to grab a great slice of pie. It’s also a charity that helps to feed the homeless and needy with the help of their subscription service and social service organizations. If its simply a slice of pie you’re looking for, you can get that here too. The offerings vary depending on the day and the cafe location, but they promise to you rich, decadent flavors that are the perfect way to end any meal. For past Pie Days on 3/14, they’ve also been known to offer a special pie-related deal.
