It’s all about pie love in this neighborhood pie shop run by owner/chef Stani. This past summer I fell in love with the delicious pies at Lime and Moon Pie Co on Bowen Island, this is where it all began for Stani just a few years ago. Her next step was to bring her pies to pie lovers in Vancouver, and Yaletown is now the hub for her freshly baked all organic pies featuring savoury and sweet pies by the whole or by the slice.
You will find it all here, all the pies are organic, and they offer gluten-free and vegan options as well. I have tried a couple of their sweet pies previously on Bowen where my favourite was the Strawberry Rhubarb Pie with chocolate crust. This time around in the new bake shop I enjoyed one of the savoury offerings the delicious Tourtière, a traditional French Canadian pie made with beef, pork, celery, cinnamon, and cloves served with a side salad. I then had their Zesty Buttermilk Pie, yummy smooth lemony buttermilk in a flakey pie pastry along with an Espresso Machiatto which is made with locally roasted organic Moja Coffee.
You will find an assortment of freshly baked pies each day, I am looking forward to returning to try their Key Lime Pie as well as another slice with the chocolate crust.
