AFTER 5 YEARS OF BEING A POP-UP BAKER, I FINALLY SIGNED THE LEASE TO MY VERY OWN STOREFRONT, EEEEEEEP!!
Pie, Pie My Darling is a one woman owned 100% vegan bakery serving the Chicagoland area since 2014 ✨
My brand new storefront is located at 2636 W Chicago Ave in West Town! For the time being my shop is only open from 11am to 1pm on Saturdays, but I hope to expand to more days/hours in the near future. You can follow @piepiemydarling on social media for weekly offerings and updates along the way!✨
My cakes are also available by the slice every weekend at The Handlebar in Wicker Park and Paulie Gees in Logan Square ✨ The flavor of the month for November is PUMPKIN SNICKERDOODLE!
I started PPMD with no business plan, no agenda, no training, and no expectations and have been continually floored by the support & demand from vegans AND non-vegans in chicago. It is truly amazing and humbling and inspiring. I love all of you SO MUCH and I thank you for making my most enjoyable hobby into a career 💖
Frequently asked questions:
Where are you located? My storefront is located at 2636 W Chicago in West Town!
Where can I find your treats? You can find an assortment of brownies, cake jars, cupcakes, cake slices, cookies, and other treats at my shop every Saturday from 11am-1pm! They are all first come first serve and you can dine in or take your treats to-go.
You can also find my cakes by the slice every weekend at Paulie Gees in Logan Square & The Handlebar in Wicker Park. If you're heading to either of these spots from far away, I would highly suggest calling ahead to check the stock, as my cakes DO sell out! Please note that due to the high demand, Paulie Gee's has a limit of two slices of cake per person, and The Handlebar is dine in only with a limit of one slice per person. Both restaurants require you to purchase the cake slice along with another item on their regular menu. They both have tons of vegan options so stick around for lunch/dinner!
I also do monthly popups events at my shop—see the “popups” tab for upcoming dates ✨
Are all of your cakes vegan? And do you offer anything gluten free?
Everything is 100% vegan--dairy, egg, and animal-product free! I don't offer anything gluten free at this time due to cross-contact. Maybe sometime in the future!! ✨
Are your treats nut free?
Many of my baked goods are baked without nuts, but please note that none of them are baked in a 100% nut free kitchen. I do use nut products often, so if your allergy is severe, I'd rather keep you safe and not feed you my cakes! If you have any allergies, you are responsible for disclosing that to me before placing your order.
Do you ship/deliver?
Nope, I can barely keep up with the demand in my own city and shipping is too big of an endeavor for me to take on at this time! Pickup only for the time being.
I need a cake for today/tomorrow/this weekend, can you have one ready?
At this time I'm not able to accept last minute cake orders ✨
How do I order a cake? Non-holiday orders are CLOSED for the time being so I can focus on stocking my brand new storefront. Please note that I do not accept orders via email, txt, facebook messenger, or Instagram DM's. Please help me stay organized and place your orders only using the ordering system on my website!
Do you do custom cakes, aside from the set flavors on the pre-order menu? Due to the high demand, I’ve decided to only take orders off of a set menu for the time being in order to streamline the ordering process! I do plan on re-opening custom orders down the line.
Once I order a cake, where do I pick it up? Pickup is at my shop in West Town, 2636 W Chicago.
How long will your cakes stay fresh if kept refrigerated & uncut? My cakes will stay fresh and moist for up to 7 days in the fridge, or even a month in the freezer!
When is your next popup/event? Click the "popups" tab in the main menu to see a full list of my upcoming events!
Do you do wedding cakes? Wedding orders are closed for the time being so I can focus on opening my storefront ✨
