If you recognize the play on words there, this bakery is for you. The purveyor of “sweet treats for the misfit soul” aims to make the most indulgent and delicious vegan desserts imaginable. Once a steadily growing vegan pop-up, Pie, Pie, My Darling now has a storefront bakery located in Humboldt Park. Every weekend after Pie Pie My Darling’s initial opening in 2019, a line of people formed down Chicago Ave waiting to get their hands on cosmic brownies, cookies, pies, and more. Cake jars - mason jars with layers of buttercream and cake pieces that didn’t make the final cut - are also a fan favorite for being downright delicious while cutting down food waste. Since the pandemic, they’ve switched to a pre-order-only system. Ordering from your couch may be more convenient than standing in line for an hour, but items sell out in minutes, so be prepared to camp in front of your laptop with your credit card number memorized.
