    Key Lime trees grow in the area. Most places just use the juice concentrate. You can get key lime pie just about everywhere. Even at Publix. It is not difficult to make. Key lime juice, zest,sweetened condensed milk, egg yolks, sugar,graham crackers, butter

      This is some GREAT Key Lime Pie... 'Key Lime Yummies' --- In Palm Harbor...

      Lots of other spectacular creations, and great folks too...

        Bill, you can't keep stuff like this to yourself. I will be checking this place out very soon.

              I saw that. I guess they deliver, but I don't usually plan ahead like that. Bummer.

                That's surprising!
                They were written up in Creative Loafing 2009 for THE BEST Keylime Pie, and Big Mike and I went in the next day... We cut a whole pie in half and went at it with a couple plastic forks sitting outside at a small table...

                Mike and I concluded, after serious defibrillation, that it might just have been the best KLP we've ever had...
                Very similar in flavoring and crust to other premium highly regarded Key Lime Pies, but with a silkier richness...

                The place was gorgeous and the mother/daughter team were passionate, creative, sweet, and proud of what they did...

                They used to be in a hidden spot in Tarpon Springs, and when I heard they moved I had to believe they chose a better location...

            Any other options in St Petersburg area? I'm here for a few weeks and REALLY craving a great key lime pie! Don't let Publix be the ONLY key lime pie I try here.

              I had a pretty decent Key Lime Pie this weekend at a friend's house, made by Mike's Pies. They are made in Tampa and distributed locally - I think this one was bought in a Sweetbay Supermarket's bakery section, but here's a list:

                I get the Publix one all the time, it's pretty damned good.

                Haven't been in a while but Pie Factory on Walsingham Rd. in Largo has superb key lime pies.

                  The best Key Lime Pie I ever had was at the Don CeSar. The Sea Porch used to have it with a chocolate crust. YUM. But, I haven't been out there in ages, so I'm not sure it it's the same.

                      I second Dockside Dave's! Either in St. Pete Beach or the location on Madeira Beach, Dockside Dave's has the best KLP in my opinion. The crust is oreo crust....I think it's a perfect combination of flavors!
