It is the peak of peach season here in Ontario, which has us thinking about one thing: pie.
Though we’re fond of any dessert made with local peaches, it’s hard to beat a classic peach pie. If you love peach pie as much as we do, then this list is for you. Here is our roundup of the top 10 peach pies in the province – road trip anyone?
Little Pie Shack
6 Francis St E,, Fenelon Falls, Kawarthas-Northumberland, Ontario
At the Little Pie Shack you will find nothing but homemade goodies, using an old family pastry recipe. It’s because of this pastry recipe that their peach pie is one of the best.
3119 Muskoka District Road 169 #2, Bala, Ontario
Located in the heart of Muskoka, this family run bakery has been in operation since 1947 and has been a staple for cottagers just as long. If you’re heading North this weekend, this is a great place to stop for a treat – not to mention it makes our list for the top 10 peach pies in Ontario.
Blackbird Pie Company
108 Main St, Heathcote, Ontario
Blackbird Pie Company is a real treasure hidden in the small town of Heathcote, Ontario. If you are anywhere near Collingwood we recommend you make the trip. This family owned bakery makes a mean peach pie, but they also offer handcrafted sweet and savoury pies, muffins, tarts and sandwiches. Make sure you get there early because they sell out fast.
The Pie Plate
1516 Niagara Stone Rd, Virgil, Ontario
This cozy café is known for their delicious pies and pastries featuring seasonal fruits. Now that it’s prime peach season, you can be sure you are going to find one of the best peach pies in Ontario at this spot. Bonus:
Right above The Pie Plate there is a vacation room for rent… imagine all the pie you would be able to eat.
Superior Home Bakery
438 Great Northern Rd, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario
Voted the best bakery in the Sault, Superior Home Bakery means business. Though they serve up an excellent peach pie, they are also known for their donuts… donuts AND peach pie? Don’t mind if we do.
Sweet and Savoury Pie Company
373 Bridge St W, Waterloo, Ontario
With a promise to satisfy your taste buds and warm your heart with their baked goods, Sweet and Savoury Pie Company is not to be missed. They specialize in fruit, cream, and meat pies using traditional recipes with local ingredients. They also operate a café called Just Love Pie Café where you can get pie milkshakes. That’s right, you can get a peach pie milkshake.
Hidden Goldmine Bakery
59 Durham St S, Madoc, Ontario
This bakery is exactly what it sounds like, a hidden goldmine. Loved by locals for years, they recently made a move to Main Street Madoc where they can share their treasures with everyone. We highly recommend this spot for peach pie, but if you have room for more we also think you should pick-up a couple of butter tarts.
Wanda’s Pie in the Sky
287 Augusta Ave, Toronto, Ontario
If you’re looking for a peach pie that will rival even your grandmother’s recipe, look no further than this Kensington Market staple. Wanda’s Peach Praline pie is award winning for a reason.
Heatherlea Farm Cafe
17049 Winston Churchill Blvd, Caledon, Ontario
you will find a carefully curated selection of local food items from farm fresh eggs, to cheeses, to pasta sauces. And their bakery is no different, all of their pies and pastries are hand rolled and made with fresh, local, seasonal fruit. We love their Strawberry Peach pies (pictured above!)Bonus:
Heatherlea Farm Shoppe is Feast On® certified.
Life of Pie Bakery & Cafe
1134 Bank St, Ottawa, Ontario
What do we love most about Life of Pie? If we had to pick just one thing it would be that they make fresh, handmade pies Every. Single. Morning. This means that their offerings vary from day-to-day, so make sure to check their website to see what day they’ll be serving up peach pie.
