MOVING: Pie Lady packs up her rolling pin and moves to Bank Street

Fear not pastry fans of Old Ottawa South, the so-called Pie Lady has not left the neighbourhood. Yes, she closed her plucky little pie bakery on Leonard Avenue last week, but this morning at 8 a.m. Kerry Duffy re-opened Life of Pie in its new location at 1095 Bank Street, two doors down from John Taylor’s wine bar Genuine.

According to the Life of Pie facebook page, visitors can expect to find scones, muffins, and coffee as well as cookies, brownies, soup, quiches, and — of course — pies.

Later this month, the Pie Lady will be offering a workshop on how to make the perfect pumpkin pie. It will be held at the newly renovated Old Ottawa South Community Centre (260 Sunnyside Ave.) on Wednesday, September 29 at 6:30 p.m. The cost is $20. Register at
