Ah, Pi Day— the perfect example of our willingness to take any excuse to eat and celebrate. What once was a day to celebrate math has quickly become one that encourages pie-lovers everywhere to pick up and savor a slice. If you’re like us — and your favorite math problem is “pie > pi” — be sure to make a pit-stop for a slice at these famed pie shops across Denver this Pi Day.

To get your hands on one of these cast-iron skillet beauties, you can order online or head to Temple Bakery— we suggest doubling down on their Drunken Nut with bourbon, chocolate and pecan and The Boyscout with blueberry and lemon. And, if you’re wanting to nerd out like us and learn about pie on its big day, they’ll be at Ford-Warren Library talking about the history and techniques of pie-making from 4-5 p.m. Event details here

This fast-casual rotisserie inside of the Nichols building downtown can put out some serious pie. Although their regular menu is can’t-miss, you’ll want to save room for dessert—specifically, its Salted Chocolate Pie ($4). We’ll let that photo speak for itself. 

Black Eye Coffee

If you like your pie with a side of caffeine, we don’t blame you. To grab a cup with a celebration-worthy slice, head to Black Eye Coffee in Cap Hill. They have a pie of the day special everyday, but their Strawberry Balsamic pie for Pi Day is sure to be a winner.
