Searching for great Key Lime Pie

Bobbie Aug 2, 2001 08:01 PM

Anyone know of restaurant with great Key Lime pie? Used to go to the old Stepps in downtown to satisfy my craving. Prefer real whipped cream topping vs. meringue.

    Border Grill. Definately the Border Grill

      Trader Jo's has a frozen key lime pie that's pretty darn good. Maybe not the same as fresh, but if you just need a fix it does the trick. Inexpensive and you can top it with your own homemade whip cream if you like.

        When the Ivy has key lime pie it is as good as it is in Florida.

          Two recent samplings: Marmalade in Malibu - great graham cracker crust and perfectly tart.
          Palace Café in Santa Barbara (okay, so it's not LA - you didn't specify) was also very good, although a little sweeter than I would have liked.
