Save room for dessert and grab a slice at our Best Pies Talk of the Town Award-winner, Black Forest Pastry Shop

This local favourite has been filling the streets of Downtown Oakville with the smell of freshly-baked goods since 2002, specializing in cakes, cupcakes, cookies, pastries, lunches and, of course, pies. 

You won’t want to miss their unforgettable fresh fruit features, such as apple, cherry, mixed berry, strawberry rhubarb and Ontario peach. In the mood for something a little more decadent? Try their pecan caramel flan or the banana or coconut cream pies. 

We promise, one slice won’t be enough once you get a taste of these sweet sensations. 

Indulge that sweet tooth a little longer and check out Best Pie runner-up, Cupid’s Gourmet Bakery!

This hidden gem offers a rotation of seasonal favourites, serving up flavours like banana pudding, Irish mudslide, cranberry apple, blueberry and pumpkin. Buy for the whole family with their 9” pie or treat yourself with their individual 4” pies. 

Don’t want a full pie all to yourself? Takeaway your own personal square at Best Pies second runner-up, The Sweetest Thing!

Try one of everything with this Kerr Village bakery’s bite-sized key lime, lemon meringue and apple crumble bars. These small “dollops” are the perfect treat for those looking for a fun and flavourful single-serving dessert.
