Sometimes how many great and local places Toronto have until I revisit it. This week I had to stop by Kensington Market and I found myself at Wanda's Pie, a vegetarian Coffee Shop that makes the most amazing pie that I ever tried.
Ok they are actually really famous because of their Pies than anything else, but I actually first find tis place because I was desperate for a coffee.
Like most of the places at Kensington Market, Wanda's Pie is a niche, they are have a full vegetarian menu that by the way is delicious, overtime that I go there I try to escalate my way on the menu trying different things such the veggie burger that is AMAZING, the homade cookies and the cheddar croissant with a cup of Cappuccino. Whatever you try in the menu, make sure to end up with a slice of pie.
They do different flavours, my favourite is the strawberry that I'm pretty sure is the most popular too, always fresh and they are gone before we notice.
Besides the great food and coffee, the are all about arts, they do sell some local art that is exposed on the walls, and they also have a very cool poster display for the events that happen all over the city in the art scene. That's a cool way to support the community.
Like I mention before, the menu is entirely vegetarian and delicious, even if you're not vegetarian worth to try some of the delicious pastries, I always stop by there for a cappuccino and croissant.
Kensington Market has a lot of great places to visit, eat and shop, so make sure that while you visit Wanda's pie, take a walk around the streets and discover very unique things. Oh, one more thing, every last Sunday of the month, the entire street closes for just pedestrians walk around the street enjoying some food extravaganza and live music in the middle of the street.
Oh, last but not least, the menu is very budget friendly for what you get, you can get a full and big meal and aa coffee for less than $15,00 dollars.
