Just Love Pie Café, owned by Sweet and Savoury Pie Company, is a café located in the Atrium in Uptown Waterloo. They specialize in a wide variety of cream, fruit, and meat pies. To make these pies, they use fresh, local ingredients and traditional recipes. In addition, the pies are baked fresh daily, eliminating the need for preservatives.
Just Love Pie owners Henry and Dianne deJong opened this location after the success of their original venture, Sweet and Savoury Pie Company, located on Bridge Street in Waterloo. They opened the café in Uptown Waterloo as a result of high demand and a desire to provide a comfortable place for their customers to enjoy their food.
There are more than just delicious pies at the Just Love Pie Café. Also on their menu are wraps, soups, salads, coffee, tea and hot chocolate; they even have pie milkshakes, which is a slice of pie blended with ice cream. A wide variety of pie flavours are baked each day. The menu includes 28 varieties of meat-based pies, 23 varieties of sweet pies, and nine different flavours of butter tarts. Meat pies can also contain such ingredients as mac & cheese, tomato, spinach, cheese, and more, all of which complement the meats inside.
Just Love Pie Café offers a unique experience in terms of ambience. The highlight is a 1965 Hi-Fi stereo which plays records owned by the deJongs. Customers are encouraged to bring their own vinyl to play as they sit and enjoy their meals. They also offer comfortable seating and free Wi-Fi.
Both fresh and frozen pies are also available at the original Sweet and Savoury Pie Company Location on Bridge Street. In addition, they can be purchased Tuesdays (mid-June to the end of August), Thursdays and Saturdays from the St. Jacobs Farmers’ Market. The Just Love Pie Café itself is open six days a week, and is closed on Sundays.
