If a place lingers long enough on our list of places that we want to visit, without our getting there, there is a chance they will open a branch closer to us! Welcome to Langley, The Pie Hole! I will continue to procrastinate in the hopes that more vegan-friendly places move to the valley!Located on Fraser Hwy in the former Pink Avo location, The Pie Hole is a place where you can enjoy a meal or dessert in the cafe or pick up a frozen pie for later! I decided to do both.
The Pie Hole - Vegan Options
They have seasonal pies including this Holiday Pie which is appropriately full of mashed potatoes and vegan sausage. The crust was amazing also. In the cafe, they do not heat these with a microwave as the crust stays nice and flakey. This was comforting and warm and made me want to take a nap as Thanksgiving meals tend to do.
The in-house selection is quite good (more in a separate pastry case) and should satisfy vegans or omnivores alike. The small pies (5" as above) are around $13 while the big pies are $46 and probably a better deal for a larger group (I did not do the volume calculation!). I chose the smaller pies so that I could try more!
At home, we baked the vegan Pizza Pie (60 to 90 minutes from frozen) and then semi-destroyed it by trying to remove it from the pan too soon! This was a big hit for Mharie and me as it was cheesy and rich and even had some vegan pepperoni. Very pizza-ish with no compromise and again the pie crust was excellent.
Kind of a weird choice of layout for the photograph, but I wanted to show just how much pie the Vegan Apple Pie provided. It was very good and with a little plant-based ice cream (should have used a slice of vegan cheddar) was the best dessert that we have had in a while!
I feel like having a few pies in the freezer may be a good idea for occasions when we are too lazy to cook. I advise cooking 2 at one time just to reduce the electricity required per calorie of food (90 minutes can be a long time). I am not sure about thawing them first but it might be worth enquiring. Thanks, Pie Hole. See you again soon, no doubt.
