Where to Get a Sweet, Flaky Fall Pie in Montreal

All the seasonal standbys, plus some crowd-pleasing spins

View as Map

Montreal may not be the biggest dessert pie town (yet), but this is a city that goes wild for buttery pastry and anything apple, maple, or cinnamon-flavoured (especially from September through to December), so it’s only natural that some of Montreal’s best bakeries have come through for pie-lovers with some great seasonally-appropriate options.

This list focuses specifically on pies, tarts and tartlets in fall flavours — ones that’ll make you the most popular person at your dinner party or family get-together. If you, somehow, remain oblivious to the charms of flaky, buttery crust and gooey, fruity fillings head to our list of the best baked goods in town.

Copy Link
3300 Rue Romolco, Rawdon
QC J0K 1S0, Canada
(450) 760-7337
Visit Website

If you’re pie-purchasing style is more “drop in and hope for the best” than “research and order ahead,” Lanauderié tarterie Création Madeleine, which operates a stand in Jean-Talon market, may be the way to go. With over 20 classic pie flavours on offer, including fall favourites like maple sugar and apple, you may have to make some difficult decisions.

2. Café Dei Campi

6672 Av. Papineau, Montréal
QC H2G 2X2, Canada
(514) 563-0649
Visit Website

Italian patisserie and boulangerie Café dei Campi has gone all out for the season, with pumpkin meringue tartlets (a combo that deserves to be way more ubiquitous than it is), salted caramel walnut tarts and apple turnovers. A great choice for anyone who believes that many (small) pies are better than one.

3. Mamie Clafoutis Angus (multiple locations)

Copy Link
4093 Rue Molson, Montréal
QC H1Y 3L1, Canada
(438) 384-7225
Visit Website

Local chain Mamie Clafoutis can always be counted on for a great seasonal pie, and this autumn, it’s all about the apple, with a tarte Normande (a shortcrust-based apple tart that originated in Normandy) and a cinnamon apple crumble pie. Orders can be placed online for pickup at Mamie’s six locations, all of which are open seven days a week.

4. Pâtisserie Rhubarbe

1479 Avenue Laurier E, Montréal
QC H2J 1H8, Canada
(514) 316-2935
Visit Website

For autumn pie lovers who (gasp!) don’t worship at the altar of pumpkin, consider Patisserie Rhubarbe’s attractive chocolate hazelnut pie, which feeds six — if you can bring yourself to cut into it. Not seasonal enough for your liking? Try the tarte tatin, which features maple pommette butter, caramelized Quebec apples, and whipped cream.

5. Sachère Desserts

1274 Boul. de Maisonneuve E, Montréal
QC H2L 2A3, Canada
(514) 357-8390
Visit Website

If you’re a diehard pumpkin spice fan but want to impress your dinner party guests with something a little more refined than a simple ol’ pumpkin pie, head to Sachère, where the desserts are veritable works of art. That goes for the caramel-adorned tarte tatin and the pumpkin, pecan, and whiskey pie, which features a whipped pecan ganache, chocolate garnishes, and whiskey jelly, and sits on a sweet dough base.

6. Sophie Sucrée

QC H2W 1X6, Canada
(514) 823-5865
Visit Website

7. Bucky Rooster's Fritures

3981 Rue Notre Dame O, Montréal
QC H4C 1R2, Canada
(514) 903-3981
Visit Website

Fried chicken joint Bucky Rooster’s serves up great pie all year round, and if you’re a fan of thick, indulgent slices, you won’t want to miss the latest addition to the collection. The popular Saint-Henri spot excels at comfort food, and the “pumpkin spice cappuccino pie” offers just that, with pumpkin custard, whipped coffee butterscotch ganache, cranberry and cream cheese mousse set in a flaky crust.

8. Rustique

Copy Link
4615 Rue Notre Dame O, Montréal
QC H4C 1S3, Canada
(514) 439-5970
Visit Website

“Classic country pie stand” Rusitque is the gold standard for pie in Montreal, and you can’t go wrong with any of the six seasonal flavours currently on offer, each of which is encased by the Saint-Henri pie shop’s signature thick, buttery crust. If you’re a traditionalist, go for the classic pumpkin (served with fresh whipped cream and toasted pumpkin seeds), or choose another fall favourite, like Quebec apple or pecan. Can’t decide? Opt for an assortment of 2” mini pies in an assortment of three flavours.

9. Sweet Lee's Rustic Bakery

4150 Rue Wellington, Verdun
QC H4G 1V7, Canada
(514) 846-9318

The best pies are often the most rustic, which certainly checks out in the case of Sweet Lee’s. The Verdun bakery does a great pie, and this season’s flavours include maple sugar and apple cinnamon (available as 9” pies, 4” pies, or mini tartlets). Good luck making it out of the shop without an armful of Sweet Lee’s equally delicious assorted vegan goodies, viennoiseries, savoury pastries, and breads.
