Vi's for Pies
13408 Stony Plain Road
Edmonton, AB T5N 2C4
Tucked into a small Glenora strip mall, Vi's for Pies has an unassuming exterior that is easy to drive past without noticing. Well, it was time for me to pull over and check it out. A few steps from the entrance is a display case containing their specialty: homemade desserts (including fruit pies, mousse pies, and cheesecakes). Though I hadn't eaten dinner when I arrived, I was contemplating jumping straight to dessert I lingered at the case before being seated. When I eventually tore myself away and made it to a table, our waitress carried a menu, handwritten on large chalkboard over to our seats. Though constrained to the dimensions of the board, the menu was quite varied with soups & salads, bunwiches, barbecued meats, and hearty entrees.

If you're looking for out-of-this-world desserts, you will certainly find them at Vi's for Pies. But that doesn't mean you should overlook the rest of the menu. I found all the dishes I sampled during our visit to be fresh, well-prepared, and tasty. If you're on the lookout for a homemade, comforting, and delicious meal from start to finish, give Vi's for Pies a shot.
