Looking for Best TRADITIONAL Pumpkin Pie in GTA

Hello Everyone, with Thanksgiving coming it is time to find out where to find the best traditional pumpkin pie in the Toronto area. I say "traditional" without meaning any disrespect to those who want to riff on the traditional pie, but it is the traditional one I am looking for. To define "traditional", I am talking about a nice mildly spicy filling in a great crust, and that's it. I used to love the one from Southbrook Farms but in recent years they started freezing them and then thawing them out to sell and they weren't as good. So, any ideas? Thanks.

  1. I would give Flaky Tart a call and ask if they are doing pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving. Their offerings are about as straight up "traditional" as they come -- total homestyle baking.

      As ever, I second this rec. Flaky Tart has been taking orders for a few weeks now. She's a baking genius.

    2. WAnda's Pie in the Sky - there's two locations. I go to the one in Kensington Market. The original location is in Yorkville. Completely made in the store, and they do vegan versions of their pies too.

        there's also Wanda's in the Kitchen with Dinah on Mount Pleasant at Sherwood (half way between Eglintpn and Lawrence) which carries a limited amounts of the pies.

          Wanda's in Yorkville closed several years ago.

          1. I bought one one these at the St. Lawrence Market one year from Eve' was deeeeeelicious. Used to buy pumpkin pies from the old A & P stores, and they were great as well....sigh


            1. My favourite traditional pie is the one sold frozen at M&Ms.
