Chappy’s makes its peanut butter pie fresh daily. It’s made with chocolate, cream cheese, whipped cream, peanut butter and a graham cracker crust. “It’s rich but airy,” we were told.

Ghostlight Coffee

Ghostlight may have some of the best coffee in Dayton, but did you know they also bake a mean pie? For Pi Day, their special offerings are Bourbon Peach Pecan hand pies and S’mores pies. Yum. (Note: Ghostlight’s baked offerings rotate based on seasons and demand -- in other words, they don’t have pies ALL the time. Keep up with their Facebook page for the latest.)
