Baker Miller is a popular restaurant and bakery. Their pies, along with every single pastry in the bakery, are handmade using whole grain flour from their own flour mill.

Hoosier Mama Pie Company

Probably the most well-known pie shop in the city, Hoosier Mama was started by Indiana University alum and pastry chef, Paula Haney. The shop sells both sweet and savory pies made fresh daily. The actual store is small with only a couple of tables, so most people take their pies to-go.
