DINER: Sisters Open Vancouver’s Smallest Pie Shop In Chinatown At 721 Gore Street

December 15, 2012 

by Andrew Morrison | Sisters Stephanie and Andrea French have just opened The Pie Shoppe in Chinatown. It’s a tiny little joint featuring freshly baked pies (currently apple, chocolate pecan) and good quality coffee at 721 Gore Street. It’s a pretty cool little operation that took them just 9 days to build/open with the help of friends and family (the vinyl collection came from their father). The tasty pies are baked fresh throughout the day and the coffee comes from Stephanie’s own Panoramic Roasters (single origin, roasted on a rooftop in Kits). The Pie Shoppe opens at 11am and stays open until they run out of pie, which I imagine will be quite often because they only have a small oven to work with.

    Holy crap! Went there today, the pie was amazing! And enjoyed my first ever pour over coffee experience. I’m definitely going back tomorrow.

    I think you have to wait until Tueday, I think they are closed on Mondays…

    Amazing chocolate pecan gluten free experience… ordered the gluten free apple for the weekend… bought the vanilla bean ice cream… awaiting with anticipation! YUM!!!

    I find it more interesting that Chinatown is quickly becoming whiter (for lack of a better phrase). I think that within a decade it will be all but gone.

    Gentrification.

    I will eat the pie, though.
