A popular Port Moody pie shop is opening a second location this weekend in Burnaby.

Opening Saturday (June 4), the Gabi and Jules pie shop is located at 4568 Hastings St. near Willingdon Avenue in Burnaby.

Lisa Beecroft is the co-owner, with her husband Patrick, of Gabi and Jules Handmade Pies and Baked Goodness, as well as Caffé Divano in Coquitlam and Port Moody, but recently decided to turn their Burnaby café into a new pie store.

They’ve transformed their former sister café into a fresh, new space with pink tiled walls, whimsical wallpaper and a feature antique door wall from their flagship Port Moody pie shop.

“We are so excited to about the transformation of our space,” said Beecroft.

“The design incorporated so many unique and beautiful elements. It also gave us an opportunity to give new life to pieces that had been in our Port Moody bakery.”

Beecroft, who opened Gabi and Jules in Port Moody in 2016 and named it after her daughters Gabriela and Juliana, said the competition among cafés in The Heights neighbourhood was becoming fierce, but there was room to work with.

"Pie is the ultimate comfort food," Beecroft told the Tri-City News.

"There is this nostalgia about pie and, with the versatility of pies, there is no end to creativity."

Some of the favourites include strawberry ginger peach pie, key lime and blueberry Earl Grey pie. A new feature pie will be offered every Saturday.

Beecroft said while some baking will be done on site at the Burnaby shop, the pies will be made fresh daily at the Port Moody bakery — located at 2302B Clarke St. — where a new, more efficient oven was installed to handle the baking.

“We’re so grateful for our incredible team and for the community who have always been so supportive but especially over the past two years,” said Beecroft.

“We’ve always loved the Burnaby Heights community so we're thrilled to be able to bring Gabi and Jules to this neighbourhood.”

Gabi and Jules started as a local pie stand at the Coquitlam Farmers Market and became an instant hit.
