Thanksgiving Pies in Tampa

For those of us who are not baking up a storm this year (or any year), where are the best pumpkin, apple, pecan and cherry pies to be found in Tampa? (I guess other desserts are possible, but pies are a must.)

We always used to get ours at the Mike's Pies shop in the same plaza with Pane Rustica, but that closed over a year ago; then we ordered Mike's pies from The Junction, but it closed, too! I see that you can pre-order Mike's pies from Fresh Market, but frankly, last year they were frozen when we picked them up (at the MP shop, they used to be warm, mmmm), so I want a new source this year.

I'm thinking Pane Rustica, but other ideas are welcome...

  1. Grannybubba makes an insane pie, they refund your money if it isn't the best pie you've ever eaten. We had one last halloween and it lasted about 3 minutes at the in-laws house. they ship all over the place but they're located about 20 minutes north of here and you can pick up.

    1. JJ Gandy's Pies is in Palm Harbor, which isn't so convenient but their pies are wonderful! Their Pumpkin Chiffon pie is great for Thanksgiving.

      And last year's holiday pie offerings @ Pane Rustica sounded fantastic.
