7 transit-friendly stops to get pie this Pi Day

7 transit friendly stops to get pie this Pi Day

March 14 or 3/14 marks International Pi Day. Pi Day is not just an annual opportunity for math enthusiasts to recite the infinite digits of π (pi) and talk to their friends about math, it’s also a great day to stuff your face with all of the pie!

While Pi may be irrational, our love of pie is not, so we’re giving you a list of 7 transit-friendly stops to get pie this Pi Day.

The Pie Hole

No better place to stuff your face than – The Pie Hole! From dinner pies to after dinner pies, The Pie Hole pushes the boundaries of where pie crust can (and will) take you. Their two locations are served by route 08 (Fraser), and route 101 and 106 (Burnaby).

The Pie Shoppe

With a seasonal pie menu focusing on supporting local BC produce, The Pie Shoppe owners and sisters, pride themselves on lovingly made simple pies showcasing local, quality ingredients. Just steps from route 04, 07 and 209 transit gives you many options to get there.

Savary Island Pie Company

Founder Eileen Walkem-Hall got her start as many little girls do – behind the glass of her Easy Bake Oven. She graduated to making pies for $4 an hour at a Bowen Island restaurant before finally hitting her entrepreneurial stride, opening Savary Island Pie Company in 1989. This little gem is serviced by route 250, 251, 252, 253, 255 and 256.

Lime & Moon Pie Company

Amazing sweet, savoury, gluten-free, vegan and raw pies prepared fresh, in-house every day isn’t the only thing that sets Lime & Moon Pie Company apart from the rest. Each recipe is made by hand in small batches using locally sourced, certified organic ingredients. And if that’s not enough, they are proud to operate their business with a zero-waste philosophy! Take Canada Line to Yaletown–Roundhouse Station, or  bus route 23 or 06 to get there.

 

El Dorado Pies & Treats

Made with only the finest ingredients, El Dorado Pies and Treats has something for everyone. This little food stall in the Lonsdale Quay market packs a big punch. Serviced by the SeaBus and a variety of buses, there’s a host of transit friendly ways to get there!

 

Virtuous Pie

Virtuous Pie is all about creating food that tastes great, is good for your body and supports a healthy planet. Their mission is to bring these values together as a delicious range of plant-based pizza (and ice cream!). Visit the Vancouver location via route 41 or 70 to UBC.

Gabi & Jules

Gabi & Jules is a bakery on a mission to passionately create exceptional pies and baked goodness in a collaborative environment inclusive of individuals of all abilities. A short walk from Moody Centre Station, or serviced by route 160 and 180. Come by Gabi & Jules to enjoy a slice of pie and a cup of coffee or take a whole pie home to share with family & friends.
