“Best Pie: The Upper Crust Pie Bakery There’s a reason we featured the Stars and Stripes pie from sisters Elaine Van Buskirk and Jan Knobel in our Fourth of July feast spread: They make the best pies in Kansas City! This quaint neighborhood bakery in downtown OP serves up nostalgia by the slice — peach, gooseberry, strawberry-rhubarb — with a glass bottle of milk or a la mode. The Upper Crust also has cookies and a savory quiche on offer.” 435 South Magazine, August, 2015
