The Pie Shoppe is Vancouver’s smallest pie shop – only 300-square feet large – located on Gore Avenue in historic Chinatown. Easy to miss, this neighbourhood gem and hole-in-the-wall shop took only nine days to open and is the brainchild of two sisters who roast their own coffee, Panoramic Roasting Company, and bake their own pies. Pie flavours rotate with only Apple and Chocolate Pecan staying on the menu. All fruit is sourced locally and their fairly-traded and organic coffee beans roasted on their rooftop studio.
All pies are made with butter, and sold by the slice ($6 to $8) or whole (10″ for $20). They are gluten-free on the weekends but can be ordered gluten-free during the week with one day’s notice. Make sure you go early in the day as only a set number of pies are made every day, closing when pies are sold out.
The Pie Shoppe is open Tuesday to Sunday from 11:00am and is sandwiched between Union and East Pender at 721 Gore Street.
