Where have they all gone? I grew up with one a block from my house and now the only ones I know of are in Kits and in Burnaby. I am on a pot pie hunt right now, so I had to take it back to my childhood and go to Swiss Chalet.
We sat down in an empty restaurant. The atmosphere felt very familiar to my childhood days. However, the table however smelt like dirty cloths, like the tables at the 24 hour pho spot on Broadway.
I ordered the pot pie ($9.50) and my buddy ordered the 1/4 chicken dinner with a poutine upgrade (just over ten bucks). The pie had a nice hearty filling, celery, peas, brocolli, and chicken. I quickly broke open my pie and spooned it on my fries. I love that crunchy combination. Overall, the meal was OK, nothing special, it brought back some memories but not enough that I need to go back any time soon.
They used to have a quarter chicken deal for $5.99 on Mondays but it is no longer in existence.

Maybe I should have ordered the Shirley Temple.
