Recently, 24/7 Wall St. put together a list of the best pie shop in every state. They gathered their data by consulting reviews and rankings on a wide range of websites, including Yelp, Taste of Home, Thrillist, Fodors, Food Network, Spoon University, Forbes, Delish, and The Daily Meal, as well as numerous local and regional sites.

They also gave more consideration to shops who specialize in pies. “While precedence was given to shops specializing in pies (often with “pie” in their name), in some cases bakeries with more general focus and occasionally places that are primarily cafés were included, if they were highly rated for their pies.”

The best pie shop in Michigan is in Detroit

If you’re looking for Michigan’s best pie, you should check out their top pick, Sister Pie. Specifically, recommended is the pie shop’s salted caramel pie. This isn’t the first time the pie shop has been recognized. Another publication, Food & Wine ranked the best breakfast spot in every state and Sister Pie led Michigan once again. They also highlighted the shop’s salted maple muffins as well as their cardamom tahini squash pie.

Many restaurants have things that make them unique. Some things that people enjoy about Sister Pie is their ties to the community, variety of menu items, their merch, and that they offer classes.

The pie shop started a Neighborhood Fund during the height of the pandemic. Customers offered to help pay for others’ groceries during the stay-at-home order. Now, they’re carrying it on to make sure their baked goods and grocery options remain accessible for all. And if you’re interested to learn how they do what they do, customers can sign up for baking classes.

Here are 5 Sister Pie items you should check out.
