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.
