Wanted: Banana Cream Pie!

My mom is coming to visit and just LOVES banana cream pie. When she would visit me in NYC we would go out for dessert just to eat banana cream pie at her favorite place. I can't remember seeing banana cream pie on any dessert menues but i would love to take her somewhere that has it. It could be for a full dinner or just the dessert.

Please help me find some delicious banana cream pie in seattle!

  1. Try I've never had their white chocolate banana cream pie, but the pie there is almost as good as the best homemade.

    1. re: PAO

      I second the rec for A la Mode. I generally think it's impossible to get a good piece of pie at a cafe or restaurant anywhere (not just Seattle), but I do think A la Mode is pretty good. They have a different selection every day so call first (or have a second choice).

      There are quite a few pie places around these days--High Five, Shoofly Pie, Pie (in Fremont), so maybe you'll have to make a mission of trying the various places. :)

    2. I also love banana cream pie and am excited to hear the responses, since I haven't found a really good one in the city yet. Not the same, I know, but I did have the banana cream pie cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory last week and it was pretty tasty - nice and rich and banana-y with lots of whipped cream and slices of real bananas.

          I can vouch for this. Everything we ate there was delicious, the pie too.

        2. Get an Emeril cookbook. Ate bcp at one of his New Orleans eateries and it was terrific. Bought one of his cookbooks and now make it myself at home. Yummm/
