A surprise last minute visit from L and J meant lunch somewhere new. We debated on a few spots but eventually settled on Virtuous Pie. They specialize in plant-based pizza (all 10″ individual sized) and ice cream.
Sign outside. #Pizzabod is the new dadbod eh?
We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon (around 1:30pm). The inside is modern with three communal style tables, three stools to people watch and a couple seats outside on their mini-patio.
Oh, they also offer self serve complimentary distilled and sparkling water. Bougie.
They only had three ice cream flavours available ($5.00 single and $7.00 double scoop) when we went but there was more pint options ($11.00).
Interesting that they have happy hour (Tuesday all day, Monday and Wednesday to Friday (2:30pm to 5:30pm) and Friday to Saturday (10:00pm to 11:00pm).
Closeup of the salad, ice cream and drink options.
Condiments on the table included chili pepper flakes and almond Parmesan.
My friends were all over that almond parm. Pretty sure we sprinkled half the container.
Walnut + arugula pesto, cashew mozzarella, oven dried tomatoes, kale, caramelized onion and pine nuts. Onions added a nice sweetness. First time I’ve seen pine nuts on a pizza. Solid.
The artichokes were tasty but the chorizo could have used more spiciness. The dill on top didn’t taste like dill at all.
If you like Indian and fusion, this one is right up your alley. Great flavour and the mango chutney was icing on the cake.
Skillet cookie ($9.00)
Warm chocolate chip cookie, marshmallow, scoop of ice cream and salted caramel sauce. We opted for the cinnamon crunch flavour. The cookie was slightly warmed and melted which I enjoyed.
Cinnamon crunch was just like the cereal. Again, overpriced. Would stick with their ice cream scoops.
Solid first visit. Pizzas are a tad on the smaller side but good quality. I’ll be back for their happy hour special.
