The Pie Commission

The Pie Commission

Gourmet, scratch-made pies can be had at this shop on Dundas West or its factory outlet in Etobicoke. Popular choices are the braised beef rib, butter chicken or pulled pork, with each 5” round pie housed in an irresistibly buttery, flaky crust.

Summerhill Market

Summerhill Market

Known for its pot pies, this fine grocery store has two locations – one in Summerhill and the other on Mt. Pleasant in North Toronto. Steak, chicken and turkey pies, along with Quebec-style tourtiere, have been prepared in-house for over two decades, and they’ve become classic faves for regulars.

Cumbrae's on Queen

With three locations in the city, this is one of Toronto’s favourite butchers for top-quality meat. The shops also sell prepared foods, like its own pot pies, which are made with leaf lard for the flakiest of crusts. Options include chicken, steak, tourtiere and more.
