I went to Pies Plus Cafe the other day as I was in the area and craving something sweet. I was greeted when I walked in, and the girl working the counter was friendly. There was quite a few pies to choose from and a pretty good variety. I decided to try an Apple Rhubarb Pie and I took it... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a nice review of our establishment and our product. We do work very hard to try and make sure everything is great leaving our door.

I saw an ad for this lovely little bakery at the movie theatre and decided to give it a try! The food is amazing, but pricey. However, the quality makes it worth it. Everything is made from scratch and tastes amazing. The cafe is clean, and nicely decorated. I had a soup, and it was one of the best soups... More

The pie looked pretty tiny but was otherwise picture perfect. Unfortunately the texture and taste were bordering on disgusting. There wasn't enough whip cream in my postal code to make this pie pleasant. Very disappointed. Expensive garbage. A bad ending to an otherwise great Thanksgiving Dinner. Won't be back.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to review our product. We are disappointed to learn that you are unsatisfied with your purchase. I am assuming you purchased a pumpkin pie (the kind was not in your review) as it was for Thanksgiving. We do make our pumpkin pies (using our deep dish 9" pie pans) using actual pumpkins cooked...

Found this place online and thought it'd be nice to try homemade food. We had beef stew with Caesar salad followed by a piece each of Apple and chocolate banana pie. Anyone that thinks this place is less than a 4 is less than an average human. Let them go to McDs. For me and my family we'd come back... More

I had my 1st & last visit here for lunch. Typically when I get what I deem to be consumer unfriendly policies anywhere, I never go back. I ordered the $10 1 1/2 cups of chicken pie. I passed my credit card and was informed they don't take credit cards (strike one, you've typically lost me at this point). I... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our establishment. We are sorry you feel you did not get the value out of your pie.

I will never go back, this restaurant has been around for years, the pies are actually pretty good, the chicken salad sandwich is why I have eaten here before. The restaurant décor is tired and dated. The restaurant is family owned, the owners son is the reason I would not recommend wasting your time or money here. I have been... More

I like pie. I consider myself somewhat of an expert in pie. My expertise comes from being subjected to excellent pastry since I said "I do" over 45 wonderful years ago. Ma Kettle's pastry melts in your mouth, and her efforts have seldom failed to exercise my taste buds. The pastry at Pies Plus is just ok, not substandard by... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our establishment. We would like to point out a couple inaccuracies in your review.

I read about this little gem online somewhere, and decided to try it out. It's quite a drive for someone who lives downtown but I was pleasantly surprised at how fast I got there.
