A Real Pie Chart: Top 7 Twin Cities Slices

This is a very pie-intelligent town. Here are the ones you shouldn’t miss this summer pie season.

  • Rhubarb
    Homey, adorable, old world Jerabek’s makes real and rustic old-fashioned pies—the rhubarb variations are particularly charming.

    63 W. Winifred St., St. Paul, 651-228-1245,

  • Chocolate Pecan Tart
    It’s not really a summer pie, but the chocolate pecan tart at Bars Bakery is irresistible; it’s so cocoa-rich and beautifully intense.

    612 Selby Ave., St. Paul, 651-224-8300,

  • Ginger Peach
    When apples aren’t in season, the folks at Sun Street turn to a ginger peach medley. 4600 Nicollet Ave., Mpls., 612-354-3414,

  • Coconut Cream
    Birchwood’s coconut cream pies are out of this world—and the chiffons are lighter than clouds.
