Pies Plus Cafe – Calgary, Alberta

Pies Plus Cafe is a neat little place I stumbled upon. Not wanting to make my own pies, and craving for a home made pie, I knew the frozen isle in my local grocery stores wasn’t going to do.. and, I didn’t want to go to the Farmers Market during this long weekend rush.

I then looked up great pie places, and to my excitement, there was one not far from my house. So, I went there for lunch and ordered myself a cup of hot chocolate and a slice of apple pie. Sure, the pie was cold — which would have been awesome if they popped it in the oven to make it hot again, but it was still really good.

We also ordered a beef pie and that was really delicious. The beef in the beef stew was really savory and tender, and seasoned quite nicely. There was a pie topper which was really light and flaky.

I really enjoyed my experience here, although it was a little costly. The neat thing however, there were lots of people who came in and out of the store with empty pie dishes, which was neat! It sure keeps their customers coming back for more pies!

Cora’s 130th Avenue SE – Calgary, Alberta

One of my favorite sit down breakfast places would be Cora’s, and we got to go to the one in the South on 130th Avenue in Calgary on March 19th, 2011.  Food was great, prices was great — with large portions!!

I ordered their Raspberry 4 Lucie and I think it’s very fitting. I used to get called Lucy a lot too… well, oddly I still do. Not sure why! Anyway, this breakfast was a thin crepe filled with raspberries and custard with cream cheese! It was amazing and not too sweet at all!

The other breakfast that we ordered was their Western-Cheddar crĂȘpomelette which was a savoury crepe with ham, onions, red and green peppers, tomatoes, green onions and Cheddar cheese, covered in hollandaise sauce, served with potatoes and toast! Told you this was a big breakfast!

Overall, it was a fantastic time here. Always expect a long wait unless you’re very early!
