Pie on Pi Day in Vancouver

It’s been a while since my last dose of pie. Since it was Pi Day (March 14), I just had to indulge in some pie. A few blocks away from my work is The Pie Shoppe. They are a cute little shop that bakes pies and serves coffee. The shop has no chairs or anything, so it is purely takeout.

We didn’t put in an order of what we wanted before hand, but they had enough pies to choose from. I did notice that they had a lot of orders for Pi Day. If you want to guarantee they have your favourite flavour, call in ahead of time.


Gluten Free Chocolate Pecan Pie ($8) was oh so sinfully delicious. I have a soft spot for butter tarts. The crust was perfectly crisp and the filling was oozing with delicious sweetness. I did enjoy the amount of sweetness balanced with the dollop of chocolate. Some people may find it sweet., but that can be counteracted with a cup of coffee or tea.


Classic Apple Pie ($20) was alright. I found that there was a lot of space between the crust and the filling, so cutting it perfectly was a challenge. The best part really was the crust.


Overall, the pies were enjoyable and were gobbled up quite quickly. When it’s Pi Day in Vancouver, pick up a pie at the Pie Shoppe.
