The top 30 pies in Toronto by neighbourhood

Pies in Toronto are a seasonal delight, filled with berries and stone fruit in the summer months; pumpkin and minced meat as the temperatures cool; and of course, cream pies, which are always tasty. Luckily in Toronto, bakers have got the whole gamut covered.

Here are my picks for the top pies in Toronto by neighbourhood.
