For those who cannot wait until Jenell Parsons sells her famous pies at the Vancouver Farmer’s Markets again this summer, there’s another location where you can conveniently pick up her signature flaky and buttery treats.
Parsons started the Pie Hole in 2011, and it has grown rapidly. She recently opened a second location in Burnaby (7832 6th Street), which serves as a production kitchen and take-out retail shop.
The 4,000-square-foot space works as a central bakery, and features many refrigerated display cases that house frozen and freshly baked 9-inch and 5-inch pies, hand-pies, and other baked goods.
Customers can order 10-inch pies by the slice, and pair their treat with coffee, tea, and other drinks.
The Pie Hole uses locally sourced ingredients to make its products, and all pies (known for its double-butter crust) are made from scratch on a daily basis.
Some of its most popular pie flavours include “To Die For” banana cream, apple-pear-caramel praline, lemon meringue, Fat Elvis (dark chocolate ganache, banana cream, peanut butter whipped cream, housemade caramel, and roasted peanuts), and steak-and-stout.
Don’t expect to get your hands on the same pies each week—its menu rotates often, so be sure to check online and order in advance to avoid disappointment.
