Pi: It’s that mathematical ratio of a circle’s radius to its circumference. In decimal form, it begins 3.14.
Pie: That magical, circular dessert that radiates happiness from within its circumference and takes less than 3.14 seconds to devour.
Once a year, on Pi Day (3.14 is March 14th, get it?) these two phenomenon come together and we go banana cream to get our hands on the best slice of pie we can find.
This year, we cut through the Yelp data to find the top pie shops in every US State and Canadian province. Think of them as the upper crust. The (whipped) cream of the crop.
We limited our search to sweet pies in any sized round shape, or the trendy hand pies, but that doesn’t mean we don’t also love those savory pie shops we discovered along the way (looking at you, Waltzing Kangaroo). From berries to buttermilk, and chocolate to coconut cream, you’re sure to find a new pie spot to circle as your favorite!
You can see the selections below, then follow the Yelp Collections (US here, Canada here) so you have them saved wherever you go.
This is an all-time list of the best pie in every US state and Canada according to Yelp. We identified businesses in the pies category, then ranked those spots using a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews. All businesses were marked open on Yelp as of March 8, 2021. When available, all businesses on this list have a passing health score as of March 8, 2021. (Data was inconclusive in Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and Yukon. Know a great pie spot there? Share it on Yelp!)
