When this place was just a hole in the wall off of Sunnyside it was an incredible find. Great artisanal pies made with fresh ingredients. More recently though, it’s really just an assembly line turning out heavy undercooked pastry using frozen fruit from God knows...More

We've had amazing pie from here before, not sure what's happened. Our pecan pie was hard and stale. The quiche purchased as part of a "cottage pack" for my father's 85th birthday was not only awful tasting, it made him sick. Money was cheerfully refunded,...More

After a long mirning walk along the Rideau River, make it a point to walk up Bank street and stop for a freshly baked scone and cappuccino at Life of Pie. The cappuccino had a nice head of frothed milk, and the coffee was flavourful...More

We ordered two brie cranberry quiches for the Christmas holidays. We were very disappointed in the taste, texture and presentation. Maybe the preparation was rushed to accommodate orders. There was little or no brie in the mixture and it tasted too much like an omelette,...More

On a cold and crispy day, why not take a break in the warmth of a nice coffee shop? The Life of Pie is a pleasant place to stop for a hot drink and a tasty treat. We had a scone and a muffin --...More

Friends had recommended this spot. Didn't realize they had breakfast on weekends. Ordered the Waffle Special which came with "spicy maple butter". I don't like heat but they suggested I try it. Waffle came with a fried egg and bacon. It was awesome and I...More
