Best slice of pie in montreal
So i have just watched every episode of pushing daisies over the last two weeks and have a craving for a slice of pie. A few types available, close to the plateau, serves coffee (i take it damn good! and hot!) would be great! Would like somewhere to hit up with some kind of regularity ideally!
So many choices. I can satisfy my craving for gooey rich chocolate and caramel when necessary but my favourite is the apple crumble. Sooooooo good warmed up with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Thank god I don't know the calorie count on these pies.

If pushing daisies does that to you, stay away from twin Peak, you'll be having too much coffee and pie in no time (if there is such a thing). Not sure if it's the best, but Mamie Clafoutis opened a branch on St-Denis, near St-Louis square. I haven't tried the coffee, but baked goods are pretty good.
I'm also a fan of Rockaberry, for the fruit pie s(cobbler style).
Other good bakeries in the Plateau areas:
Cafe Soufflé (St-Urbain/Marie-anne)
The whole Laurien area between St-Denis and Papineau.
But pie is not as present in Montreal as it is in the states, so most bakeries will have only a limited selection
If you haven't tried rockaberry, they have a good selection and the one on st-denis has a cozy coffee/bar area. their specialty is large slices of over the top chocolate creme and cheese pie variations, but their fruit pies are also unusually large and unusually shaped- good taste though. Can be crowded weekends and nights like everything in that area. www.rockaberry.ca
