SEEN IN VANCOUVER #429: A Short Film On The Making Of Chinatown’s The Pie Shoppe

February 26, 2013 

Dig this short Zack Lazarus film on the making of The Pie Shoppe, the recently opened, deliciously aromatic 300 square footer at 721 Gore St. in Chinatown from sisters Stephanie and Andrea French (it smells of apple pie and very good coffee). It took them just 9 days to build the place! Our own shots from the first week are below…

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.
