In a world where change is continuous and inevitable, the Hilltop Diner Cafe has withstood the test of time. This Langley diner has been open since the 1940s. It is now owned by 2 sisters who have preserved this local treasure. The Hilltop has been featured on my favourite Canadian food show, You Gotta Eat Here.
The diner is open daily til 2:30pm so they serve breakfast all day and lunch.
The beef dip came on a super soft bun and tender beef. The au jus was delicious and not too salty.
The roast beef sandwich was very tasty and satisfying. The poutine was delicious. I love those squeaky cheese curds.
The mushroom burger came piled high with mushrooms and mozzarella cheese.
The Hilltop is famous for their housemade pies. Their fruit pies are purchased from Krause Berry Farms down the street but all non-fruit pies (as shown in the list above) are made from scratch. You know its going to be good when this is the pie list.
If it helps you decide, you can see the pie fridge. So many good choices.
After much deliberation, we decided on a classic lemon meringue pie and one of their original specialties (my favourite here), the salty caramel peanut butter pretzel. Both were out of this world delicious but there is something about the salty caramel peanut butter one that gets me every time. The texture of the salty caramel pie is a cross between a cheesecake and a pie. The pretzel crust is the perfect partner with the peanut butter. The fresh whipped cream on top balances it all out and cuts a bit of the richness from this decadent pie. It is worth every single calorie, I promise you.
