For an upcoming birthday I'm looking for an outstanding banana cream pie, ideally from a Toronto bakery or some place that happily does takeout (i.e. I'm not looking for a sit-down restaurant experience. Just hand over the pie, I'll leave quietly, etc).
The one memorable BCP I've had in this city came from Altitude Bakery down on Queen East. These days you have to special order, which isn't such a big deal, but I thought it might be worth looking for something better. Altitude has sold me at least one burnt pie and a couple of others that just weren't very good in the past year - they're becoming erratic, and along with "outstanding", I'm also looking for "reliable".
