I had amazing pie… for breakfast!!!
If you guessed I had breakfast at Tale Tales Cafe in Wallacetown, Ontario, then you’d be right! How can you resist leaving without having a piece or taking it to go?
At Tall Tales, pie is a staple at every meal! You are allowed to order and eat it before your meal, even at breakfast, no judgments! And instead of cake for your birthday, order your favourite as a whole pie, in advance of course: 1-519-762-2605 (Cherry Crumble is one of my favourites)
I love that you are sure to get fresh, local ingredients here. For instance, the strawberry/rhubarb pie’s ingredients are right from Chef John Mairleitner’s garden.
They are also known for their fabulous breakfasts. I love their crispy bacon and perfect over easy eggs – yolk and no runny whites. But they also do a great twist on their homefries, they poutine them! Their poutine hash browns are so yummy! It’s the right amount of shredded mozzarella, but it’s the gravy that really makes it, as its seasoned perfectly. Ending with a piece of strawberry, rhubarb pie, slightly heated with a bit of vanilla ice cream was a great recommendation by Bernadette.
I’ve since returned for their pizza! Everyday after 4 pm they make their thin crust loaded pizzas!
Tall Tales is an all around great restaurant from their local, fresh food, friendly staff, (ready to share their recommendations), to their down-to-earth, approachable owners John and Holly, to their cosy atmosphere. I love the conversations at the big communal table because most times you’ll end up sitting with people you didn’t come with but probably know.
My favourite pies at Tall Tales are peach cream and cherry cream (seasonal treats for sure). If you haven’t tried their pizza, you’re surely missing out!! =)
I haven’t tried the pizza. Thank you! I’ll check that out.
