Aphrodie Cafe and Pie Shop
Aphrodite Cafe is in a part of town that I rarely venture to and none of my friends have ever been here. I wanted to try it out because I assume they would offer a meat pie on their menu to add to my meat pie hunt. They take pride in being an organic cafe and I really like how they have seasonal plates on their menu.
The interior was decent, it had a dinner like feel to it. Our pretty Argentinian server provided us with solid service throughout the night. My friend and I decided to share a couple of plates, we had the chicken pot pie (I think $14) and the mushroom pizza (around 12 bucks), and rhubarb and raspberry pie for dessert with two scoops of ice cream.
The meat pie was pretty small but had a nice flaky crust, the accompany salad was very fresh. The pizza was really good but it did not stack up to the mushroom pizza at Cascade. That pizza at Cascade is fantastic. I love it.
Overall, based on the value and flavour, I would only return for the dessert. I know better places for meat pies and pizza.
Based on the way we ordered (two guys sharing everything) we came off as pretty homosexual, so my flirting with our server must have been misread. Obviously, I didn't get the number or even a fake name to look up on Facebook. Lol.
