“Great lunch”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

Enjoyed the best chicken salad sandwich ever. This is definitely a share meal for those with smaller appetites. Lots of cubed chicken mixed with celery, onion, mayo and dill on one half of the bun, lettuce, tomato and cucumber on the other half. Greek salad is very generous with loads of feta cheese. Dessert choices are varied, fresh and hard to resist. Suggest just going for dessert and coffee in the later evening.

“Delicious Desserts, Amazing Food”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

Vi's for Pies is a cute little cafe with a great (although small) patio. The desserts are always fantastic and the food is always delicious. I have introduced many people to this restaurant and plan to continue to introduce more. Service is usually pretty good, value is great (a huge piece of cake for $7), and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. I love Vi's and have been a huge fan for many years.

“Nice for dessert or lighter fare”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

I've eaten here several times. The desserts are always good. It's also a good place for a lunch, with spanikopita or soup being my usual choices. Always a cute and comfortable spot for a visit. Nice patio too.

“cosy diner for brunch or snack”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Fresh fare and always changing. Usually a good soup. The major draw is the tasty pie selection - you have to come by every so often to indulge - Glenora neighbourhood

“The place for desserts!”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

Desserts at Vi's have always been tasty and consistent. Whether it's the carrot cake, coconut cream pie, pecan cheesecake, lemon poppy seed cake, nanaimo squares, raspberry coconut squares or lemon squares. The list goes on! All of which are very tasty and if you come in to sit down and eat in or ask for a take out and go to a park to eat it, you will not be disappointed!

The meals on the other hand are always lacking. I once had the hummus and had to send it back because, well, it just wasn't good. I've stopped going for lunches or suppers and just go for dessert. It is worth it for me but perhaps not for some. Even if you are coming for a dessert and tea they never make you feel like you have to rush out the door. Attentive staff who make a point of checking in every so often.
