pie in Toronto

Where is it? By "pie" I mean the result of a total commitment to pie: a fruit pie with a top crust. No cream pies, tarts, or short-cut efforts involving granola or the dreaded "crumble" will do. Please also avoid references to the circular slabs marketed by big-box stores which shall here remain nameless. I wouldn't mind being directed to bakeries, but what I really want is a place where I can sit down with a piece of real pie and a cup of coffee.
re: Guy Middleton
The bakery in the distillery district seems to specialize in savoury pies. I haven't tried them but hear they are good - but not from a meat pie expert. They have 5-6 varieties including "fidgit" - looked this up online and it is chicken, leek and apple I believe.
Does anybody like the pie at Vienna home bakery? Not that impressed myself.
