Battle Results! Best Pie Battle: Brampton vs. Mississauga
Have you been in the mood for an exceptional sweet or savoury pie and haven't been quite sure where to go to get one?
Since there is no shortage of selection in the GTA, the choice as to where to dine can be a tough one—especially when places that serve pies are plentiful across cities.
When it come to a great pie, every aspect counts. Is the crust flaky and baked to perfection? Is the filling decadent and satisfying? Do you crave another piece as soon as you're finished the first one?
Both Mississauga and Brampton are known for their respective food scenes and both offer a ton of commendable pie places—but only one city can have the absolute best hotspots.
What places were competing?
Mississauga is home to a number of delicious restaurants and bakeries that offer incredible pies. Some hotspots worth checking out? The high quality (but still very affordable) Truscott Italian Bakery and Delicatessen, the beloved and long-standing Elmwood Meat Market in Port Credit, the Queensway and Cawthra-area La Casa Dolce, the quaint and high- quality Kate's Town Talk Bakery in Streetsville and our number one pick, the elegant and appealing Le Delice Pastry Shop in Lorne Park. While Le Delice is our number one pick, there's no shortage of pie in Mississauga.
If you're looking for a great sweet or savoury pie, there are lots of places to find one in Brampton. Some hotspots you don't want to miss? The varied, diverse and tasty Pie Guyz, the always magical--but somewhat easy to miss--Nova Grill and Bakery, the near-legendary (and somewhat more rural) Apple Factory, the hidden sweet pie gem known as the Country Apple Store and our number one pick, the independently-run Prince of Wales Country Market. While Prince of Wales is our number one pick, Brampton is a great place to be if you want a satisfying pie.
