Village Pie is a go-to destination in Toronto for savoury Greek pies made traditionally from scratch, as well as Greek coffee and frappes and sweet Greek desserts.
All the fillings are made here using Ontario produce. The recipes come from a real Greek grandmother of one of the owners, from a real village of Kavala in Northern Greece.
Every pie has six wafer-like phyllo sheets that must be expertly rolled so that they are as thin as possible without breaking.
The meat pie is one of the heartier options packed with flavour and ingredients, with lean ground beef, onions, tomatoes, medium aged Canadian white cheddar and paper-thin phyllo.
Other options include a tasty chicken pie, meaty like the beef but a little lighter in flavour and more vegetable-y with green peppers, mushrooms and tomato. You can also opt for plain cheese or leek.
Incredibly creamy Greek coffee is made using a traditional teeny copper pot with a long handle. The coffee brought is to a boil over a high temperature over a short period of time, taken off, then heated just a little more before serving.
For a sweet dessert try their loukamades which are kind of like Greek honey Timbits, with sticky sweet chocolate hazelnut, raspberry, chocolate, caramel, or maple syrup flavour options. Or a towering, crackly baklava packed with syrupy walnuts, and galaktoboureko has a bit of a cheesecake-y feel, custard in phyllo coated in super sweet honey.
There is plenty of seating for you want to enjoy your pie and frappe in the bright, little cafe.
The savoury pies were quite good. The dessert seemed not as fresh as it could have been.
Awesome food and service!!! I’m ordering from them again for sure.
