How I heard of this place: On a little afternoon walk through Granville Island, we were easily tempted by all of the delicious dishes being consumed by businessmen, families and passerby along the dock. We stepped inside to indulge in a salmon burger but were more intrigued by these puffy pies at A La Mode.

Type of cuisine: A la Mode offers a wide selection of homemade sweet and savoury pies. Whether you’re after a toasty beef pot pie or a sweet slice of lemon meringue, we’ve got what you’re looking for. Enjoy a slice in the market or take a whole pie home to share.

Ambiance: A market like that of Pike Place and other similar local jaunts, indoor with crafts, foods and goodies, A La Mode shares the windowed views of the Aqua Boat docks and musician deck where pigeons and seagulls swoosh around in search of food.

What I ordered: For the three of us, two Clam Chowder Pot Pies and one Salmon Chowder Pot Pie, each served in its own ceramic bowl.

What I loved: Salmon Chowder.

Why I loved it: More flavor from the smokey good salmon, large chunks of salmon to make up for the watery consistency of the chowder.

Cost: Average ($5-$6 per pie)
