Shoppe closed: ON FAMILY VaCA until end of jan 2019

 
 
a farm to pie kinda place…  

Having a bite at The Pie Shoppe is captivating and enchanting all at once and it’s something you’ll find yourself yearning to do repeatedly, once you know about this special tucked away spot in East Van- down by the tracks. The shoppe is set away in a white-washed converted old former Bank of Hamilton building, built in 1910. With the Canadian National Railway Co. running a mere 6 ft. behind the kitchen window and backdropped by the serene North Shore mountain scape.

At the core of the business are the seasonal small - batch pies, which sing with creative flavour combinations such as a Rhubarb Compote & Orange Buttermilk Custard with a Cardamom Whip, Apricot Almond Butter Streusel with Son’s of Van Barrel Aged Amaretto, Salted Honey Pie with neighbourhood apiaries, Walnut  & White Rye with Resurrection Distillery’s own, to recite a few. The pies are sold almost exclusively at the shop whole or by the slice for customers to call or pop-in.

As well as the pie, made by hand by the baker’s that’s for sale at the shop, the ladies offer pie making workshops to share in the secretes and techniques driven at making the perfect pie crust at home. The workshops usually focus on seasonal fruit pies and occasionally host guest chefs. Often inviting other creatives into the space to showcase curated art works, entertain pop-up restaurant concepts, celebrate fellow chefs and young entrepreneurs- on an occasional weekend and day-off. 

This growing community influences and shapes the ladies pie business, excited to celebrate in and support urban farmers, local distilleries and breweries, apiaries, along with small scale producers of preserves, jams and confectionaries all wrapped up in a bit of pastry. 

The sister’s try to create an experience for the guests uniting over 20 years of baking. This has lead them on a path of being honest and true to their heritage, in turn supporting a philosophy in business that celebrates the small producer, costing them a few more pennies then their counterparts, but in turn modernizes profits, justified by the education and offers access to a superior quality of produce that builds upon that very dialogue with the farmer. 

Thank you for supporting us and reading this little blurb about what we do.
