    Patisserie Le Beau on W 2nd just off Burrard used to make a killer pumpkin pie with whipped cream on top; don't know if they still do but try them. At the very least I think they still make pumpkin tarts which might be big enough for individual desserts.

      Thanks Philx. I called them this afternoon and yes they do still make the one with whipped cream on top so I ordered one and will let you know how it goes-I am sure it will be delicious!

        Good to know, Philx. I go to PLB weekly and have seen the pies there but not being a big pumpkin pie fan had never tried them so didn't want to risk suggesting...

          Selena: I hope you like it but yikes please don't blame me if it isn't up to your Thanksgiving standards. I can't stand the pressure :-)

          Best wishes

            no worries...I am not a pumpkin pie aficionado or anything. I have only ever bought them from Safeway or Costco...I am sure it will be better than what I have had!

              It was really really good-loved the fresh pumpkin taste-no cans used here (at least it didn't taste like it:). Thanks for the rec.

                Glad you enjoyed it; they make a good lemon tart too and a very rich quiche lorraine (not for everyone). Their prices have gone up quite a bit in recent years but they were probably underpriced before given their quality of ingredients.

          I've had the pie at Whole Foods/Capers recommended although haven't tried it myself. They have it in a small and a large size .

            I had a very nice version at Thomas Haas today.

            And I salivate every time I walk into Sweet Cherubim and see their fresh pumpkin pies. (Shaped a little like a tagine.)

              Not a "premium" pie, but I had a pretty good one one from Uprisings on Venebles near Commercial Dr.

              I find that they do a good job at pies, coffee cakes and anything with seasonal fruit.
