You might not have thought that the concept of pie would be fraught with language politics, but this is Montreal, so you shouldn't be surprised. Dessert pie is kind of (although not totally) an anglo thing — it calls to mind the story of an anglo going to Thanksgiving dinner with a francophone partner's family, bringing a pumpkin pie and being told "honey, we don't do that in Quebec."
But it turns out that Quebec, or at least Montreal, does indeed do pie, and this map proves it. Most of the featured spots operate in some form as a bakery, although some — namely Rustique in Saint-Henri — do make pie their absolute focus. We've also featured a few restaurants with particularly strong pie games on their dessert lists, such as Dinette Triple Crown's rich and flaky southern-style pastry delights.
Be warned — this map is not sucré-salé, and meaty concoctions like tourtière aren't featured here.
