Rustique's strawberry rhubarb pie
| Rustique

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.

Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

1. Sweet Lee's Boulangerie Rustique

Copy Link
4150 Wellington, Verdun
QC H4G 1V7, Canada
(514) 846-9318
Visit Website
Sharing their Verdun space with Saint-Henri Café, Sweet Lee's inexplicably sits under the radar. They shouldn't, because their classics topped with crumble draw raves.

2. Rustique

Copy Link
4615 Rue Notre Dame O, Montreal
QC H4C 1S5, Canada
(514) 439-5970
Visit Website
It's called Rustique Pie Kitchen for a reason. Their thorough menu of classics covers pretty much every base, provided you go in the right season: coconut cream, rhubarb-strawberry, cherry, apple, and countless others, with most available also in adorable single serve formats.

3. Maison Christian Faure

Copy Link
355 Place Royale, Montreal
QC H2Y 2V3, Canada
(514) 508-6453
Visit Website
Prolific French pastry chef Christian Faure's Old Montreal store does delicate, single-serve pies that feel like Quebec summertime — strawberry or blueberry are popular choices.

4. Mamie Clafoutis

Copy Link
3660 rue Saint-Denis, Montreal
QC H2X 3L7, Canada
(438) 380-5624
Visit Website
Mamie's creative flavour mixing across various baked goods has been a hit, allowing them to open multiple bakeries across the island. Pie-wise, their lemon tart and Rougemont apple pie are hits.

5. Au Pied de Cochon

Copy Link
536 Ave. Duluth Est., Montreal
QC H2L 1A9, Canada
(514) 281-1114
Visit Website
Fine, you're not going to drop by Au Pied de Cochon just to pick up a slice of pie, but classics like lemon meringue, pecan and sugar pie figure so prominently on the famous restaurant's dessert menu that it would be negligent not to include them.

6. Les Co'Pains d'Abord

Copy Link
1965 ave. du Mont-Royal Est, Montreal
QC H2H 1J5, Canada
(514) 522-1994
Visit Website
Now at three locations and counting, Les Co'Pains may be seen as more of a French-style patisserie, but they do their darndest to cross linguistic divides — pumpkin pies appear on the menu when the season calls for it, as do tangy lemon meringue pies.

7. Patisserie Rhubarbe

Copy Link
5091 Rue De Lanaudière, Montréal
QC H2J 3P9, Canada
(514) 903-3395
Visit Website
Does the French tarte qualify as a pie? It's a semantic point that could be quibbled over at length but the concepts undoubtedly overlap, and Rhubarbe's tartes are on point, from the full-sized wild blueberry and vanilla, to sticky tarte tatin.

8. Fous Desserts

Copy Link
809 ave. Laurier Est, Montreal
QC H2J 1G2, Canada
(514) 273-9335
Visit Website
Another map point that stretches the anglo-North American definition of pie, Fous' flatter and lightly-spiced apple tart will please those who prefer apple pies more dry, and without buckets of stewed apples.

9. Sucrerie de l'Érable

Copy Link
Marche Jean Talon, Montreal
PQ, Canada
While these pies actually hail from the Sucrerie HQ at Frelighsburg, near the Quebec-Vermont border, their Jean-Talon market counter is one of their retail hubs, drawing many a maple sugar pie worshipper.

10. Dinette Triple Crown

Copy Link
6704 rue Clark, Montreal
QC H2S 3E9, Canada
(514) 272-2617
Visit Website
Many come to the Dinette for the fried chicken and picnic baskets, but those who don't stay for dessert are missing out. The menu features an ever-rotating selection of deep southern style pies, many of which you won't find elsewhere in the city, from the Derby (walnuts, bourbon and chocolate) to Atlantic Beach Pie (like a key lime pie, sans lime).
