Any way you slice it: Spilt Milk 'best pie'

We're crying over Spilt Milk — crying out with praise.

Chicago Magazine named Oak Park's own Spilt Milk, 103 S. Oak Park Ave., as the city's best pie in their August 2019 "Best of Chicago" feature. The magazine called out Spilt Milk's, blueberry-rhubarb pie in particular, writing, "Topped with streusel-like crumble, this is summer in a pie pan." 

The magazine noted that the Oak Park sisters behind the iconic pie shop recently opened up a new storefront in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood. We've also been seeing their goods at the new Totto's Market in the city's South Loop neighborhood. 

Happy to see Spilt Milk spreading its wings, but Wednesday Journal readers know where it started.

Yeah Jim. That's exactly my wife's sentiment. Only for very special occasions.

$30.00 for a small pie is too rich for me,Bruce. I'll your word for it and will just have to wait until Oak Park Bakery returns from vacation.

Jim: You get what you pay for. In this case the best pies money can by.

Serious coinage required but the offerings are delicious!
