The perfect place to pick up a sweet treat on route to Niagara-on-the-Lake! As Jill B. told us: “I have a job that involves me travelling a good part of Ontario, as well as being a cottage owner, so I’ve tried quite a few places. I from come a family of dessert freaks and avid bakers, my mom used to cater. Hands down the Pie Plate in Virgil is the best pie I’ve had and the closest to my mother’s homemade pie.”

Fresh and local – two of the things that make this bakery’s pies so delicious. Everything in the store is made fresh each day, using all natural ingredients and local produce whenever possible. As Angela posted: “I hated apple pies until I had one of theirs. I’ve never had such a great pie! Their crusts are amazing. Sweet pie dough for the fruit pies, and cream cheese pastry for their fantastic savory pies and quiches!”
