I have been to the Airport Cafe at the Chilliwack airport many many times. I have never flown in or out of the Chilliwack Airport for a flight. I have never picked up or dropped off anyone flying in or out of the Chilliwack airport….so WTF was I doing there? EATING PIE! All kinds of pie.
Look, this is a tiny cafe in a tiny airport. If you are going there for a fine dining, special occasion experience you are an idiot and deserve what you get. I cannot vouch for anything other than the pies because I have never eaten anything other than the pies. Raspberry Rhubarb, Sour Cream Lemon, Flapper, Apple Caramel. And on and on. The pies are famous, and for good reason.
I have friends who work in movie production in the Lower Mainland. Many times, stars fly in through the Chilliwack airport- it is small, fairly private, easy to get in and out of and accommodates smaller planes. They will become addicted to the pies and start having them flown in to where they live. In fact, on one film he worked on, the star gave all the crew pies from the Airport Cafe as a crew gift upon wrapping up.
A great stop off point and a story to tell.
