  1. Cracker Barrel on Ulmerton Rd. has the best apple pecan streusal pie ever. They also have chocolate pecan pie, pecan pie and pumpkin pie. They are $8.49. 4011 Ulmerton Road

      By far the beast pies in the Tarpon/Palm Harbor area is JJ Gandy's on Alternate 19.

      Check it out, its great!

    2. You might want to try at the Fresh Market in the Cypress Point center on the east side of US 19 and just south of Enterprise Rd.


      1. Pop into any Village Inn and grab a 'Lemon Supreme'...

        Delicious lemony topping, cream cheese base, graham cracker crust...
        Too good...

        Get one whenever you visit anybody---if you wanna be a freekin hero!

        Their Pumpkin pie is first class & the French Silk is spectacular...

        1. Keylime Yummies in historic old Palm Harbor has the best pies anywhere!! Their trademark keylime pie is unbelievable but that is only a teeny tiny piece of what they have to offer. Not only do I think they have the best pies, but they also have all kinds if cookies and cakes too. They are on Florida Ave, downtown but you can find their info on their web site

            Look at my post above you from 2005!!

            That was before I found out about the wonderful place you recommended!

            Me and a friend---- a fellow Key Lime Pie aficionado---- popped in on these super nice folks before they moved to this more better location, and after lustily eating a half a pie each, cut down the middle, we concluded that they actually do make the best Key Lime Pie so far...
            The flavor is on par with other top shelf KLPs, but theirs has a richness and creaminess that put it over the top...

            And yes, they do LOTS of other stuff!

            It's really a personal artistic expression for these girls and I wish them all the success they can handle...
            Like I said, they couldn't have been sweeter, and the shop was beautiful...

              Oooohhhh, I'm excited. I've been looking for a good source of T-day desserts, and it looks like this place will fill the bill.

          2. JJ Gandy's pies are awesome. Their Pumpkin Chiffinon pie and Key Lime pie are great holiday pies.
