March 14. Just a regular day? Not quite! It’s Pi Day (3.14) – and what better way to celebrate than with a delicious taste of pie. Here’s where to go to grab a slice in Edmonton.
Vi’s for Pies
This hidden gem is an Edmonton favourite for pies! Fantastic flavours like key lime or the traditional apple pie, get them by the slice or just take the whole pie (after all, you know you’ll want seconds…or thirds…).
13408 Stony Plain Rd, Edmonton
Fife N Dekel
When people stand in line just to grab a slice, you know the pie is good. And there’s nothing like Saskatoon rhubarb or flapper pie at Fife. Plus, you’ve gotta check out their rotating pie of the month – March is paradise pie.

Don’t let the name throw you off. The Art of Cake has much more to offer than cake. You can’t say no to their pumpkin praline or cherry rhubarb! Curbing that sweet tooth is a piece of cake – or pie.

Pies @ Diners
There’s nothing as nostalgic as a piece of pie for dessert at your local diner – and that’s just what you’ll find at Hathaway’s. And just like you remember, add that scoop of ice cream on top.

Edmonton’s Highlevel Bridge is iconic. The Highlevel Diner is, too. While there, try the strawberry rhubarb pie, still warm from the oven or the decadent pecan caramel fudge pie (doesn’t that sound delicious?).

Deep in the heart of the warehouse district, you’ll find a cozy table at Blue Plate Diner. And there on the menu, you’ll find the pie. You’ll be thinking about that chocolate peanut butter pie long after you’ve left the table.
