Store Bought Pies in Montreal

Ruthie789 Aug 7, 2013 07:12 PM

Some time ago, a shop called Clement made pies and they were very good. I love pie, anyone have some good suggestions as to where to purchase a good store bought pie?
Has anyone tried this shop, link as follows:

    Went to Rustique last weekend & went ga-ga over their maple syrup pie, not your typical maple syrup pie like you find at the maple syrup place in JTM, but more of a custard-like pie. Not too sweet & great crust. I took some pictures, sorry about the glare! If you go expecting an apple pie (or another specific pie), call 1st to ask them to put one aside as they sell out very quickly! Love that place!

      Love the pictures, thank you for sharing. I am in town tomorrow and hope to get there.

      Any suggestions for those of us who prefer other kinds of tart, tourte and pie? I dislike the so-called "American" type that to my taste has far too much sugar, and not always a very nice crust.

      I think Rhubarbe might be more to my taste.

      And I hope there is love for the many savoury pies, from tourtes to tourtières to Australian pies and so many more...

      Could the pasqualina/pascualina be seen as a sort of tourte, or is it too much its own creature?

        Le Fournil in Westmount. Try the cherry pie!

          Rustique Pie Kitchen on Notre-Dame W. in the St-Henri neighborhood makes great pies! http://www.rustiquepiekitchen.com/

              I enjoyed Rustique's "cream" pies (eg chocolate cream, coconut cream) more than their fruit pies, but that may just be personal preference!

                Rustique is very dangerous to my waistline, their individual sweets are unreal. i.e Nanaimo Bars, Whippets, Key Lime, everything is addictive if you have a sweet tooth. They always make a nice variety of different products.

              I wish Rustique Pie Kitchen would also sell their whole pies by the slice. I know they also make some of their pies in mini form, but it's barely bigger than sample size. It's pretty expensive to get whole pies there.

              I've tried a few pies at Piesanna and sadly have been very underwhelmed - looked and tasted mediocre.

              The pies at Rhubarbe look great but I haven't made it out there yet. http://patisserierhubarbe.com/

                There's no traditional "american" pie at Rhubarbe though.

                La fournée des Sucreries de l'Érable (Marché Jean-Talon) makes good traditional fruits one. http://www.lessucreriesdelerable.com/produits.html

                I've never been, but Rustique Pie will probably have what you want too: http://www.rustiquepiekitchen.com/

                There's also a weird antique shop on Fairmount near Voro that sells pie, made for them in Bromont (IIRC). Forgot the address. I went only one time but it was good.
