One of my favourite desserts is pie, and the best thing about pie is that there are so many flavours and varieties you can have. That’s where Itty Bitty Pie Company comes to the rescue. Each week Itty Bitty has a different variety of fresh, hand-made from scratch, sweet mini-pies available in a 6 pack. This brings your dessert game to a new level with so many varieties available to you at any time.
You’ll find their storefront in northern St. Catharines on 18 Secord Dr. Outside you’ll see their big orange Itty Bitty sign and on the inside you’ll find a sleek and simple set up displaying their weekly lineup. When you walk in you’re often welcomed with the amazing smell of fresh baked pies and store owners Tara, or her mom, greeting you.
I first came across Itty Bitty Pie Co. way back in 2011-2012 during my Brock University undergrad days. They had a booth at the St. Catharines Market Square and I remember grabbing a few pies for the weekend. I don’t remember what flavours I tried but I do remember one thing. They were the perfect snack after a long night of studying, drinking, or even curing the dreaded next day hangover. They have so many options and it’s easy to share with a group, whether it be at the office, a family event, or your study group. Oh, and add in the fact that they make phenomenal keto desserts and savory pies, and you’ve got a one stop shop.
Fast forward from the Market Square in 2011 to 2019, and Itty Bitty has their own store front serving all of St. Catharines delicious pies. Add in the handful of local events they bring their food truck to and the fact that they have served the sets of some big TV shows like Schitts Creek, you just know you have try their pies.
1. Peanut Butter Cream Pie
This ones easy, I love anything peanut butter and if you do too you’ll love this pie. It has an amazing cream filling that isn’t overpowering with a perfect consistency. Mix that with fresh whipped cream, peanuts, and a splash of chocolate sauce gives you the best Itty Bitty pie you can ask for.
2. Coconut Cream Pie
Coconut cream pie is one of my favourite flavours but it’s not always a crowd-pleaser or something I’d want multiple slices off. That’s where Itty Bitty is perfect. You can get a couple of the mini-pies for yourself or someone else to kick that coconut craving and have room for another flavour. If you like coconut or know someone who does then I’d give this one a try
3. Apple Crumble Pie
I’ve always loved a good crumble pie. This one is a home run, it’s sweet, the apples are delicious, and it crumbles. Can’t ask for anything more.
Itty Bitty Pie Co. is the perfect pie shop with a lot of variety. The best part is you can actually try everything with their mini pies without limiting yourself to one flavour. Everything is hand-made and from scratch which is obvious after your first bite. It’s a must try in the city and the Niagara region.
Although this write up was for their sweet pies they do have amazing savory pies as well, I’ll have another pick list for those later on. Let me know what you think of Itty Bitty on Instagram or email!
