Best Pie: Sister Pie

8066 Kercheval Ave, Detroit; 313-447-5550;

Lisa Ludwinski's pie-making business began quite humbly — inside her parents' kitchen. But the faster her pies started selling, the bigger a facility she needed. She moved the operation to Hannan House and was working toward the ultimate goal of owning her own bakery when Hatch Detroit awarded her $50,000 to make that dream a reality. Now Ludwinski is selling her sweet and savory creations in an adorable little bakery in West Village. If you can't make it to the shop, Ludwinski's goods are sold at a number of places around town like Ashe Supply Co., Parker Street Market, Germack Coffee Roasting Company, and Socra Tea. We suggest the buckwheat chocolate chip cookies, salted maple pie, or a savory hand pie.
