In search of coconut custard pie...

...my go-to pie place, Petsi's Pies, unfortunately does not make it.

Any leads will be much appreciated!

  1. Sweet Tooth in South Boston makes coconut cream pie - call them to make sure they have it

    1. Myers + Chang has one which I have liked very much, with lime whipped cream. I don't see it listed on the Flour menu but I wouldn't be surprised if you called M + C in advance they would sell you a whole one.

      1. Pretty sure the Agawam diner makes a killer one. I had it years ago. And I LOVE coconut cream!

            There was a period of a few years where the quality of the pies (and the rest of the food, frankly) at the Agawam had really slipped. But Allstonian and I ate there last month and were pleasantly surprised to learn that the coconut cream pie is back up to its former superlative standards.

          2. I don't know if they sell it as a whole pie (if that's what you are looking for) but my husband was raving about a Coconut Custard Pie at Summer Shack in Alewife last week.

            If you're inclined towards making one, I have a recipe that got rave reviews, let me know if you are interested and I'll post it on the Home cooking board for you.

              I'm interested for sure - please post! Jenny Ondioline LOVES coconut cream and coconut custard pies.

                Ditto on the recipe and love for cream pies.

            2. A bit far from Cambridge but my go to pie place has it. Here is their thanksgiving order form / pie menu

                I think hargau forgot to include the name/location of their go-to pie place - it's Meadowbrook Orchards Farm Store & Bakery, in Sterling, MA. (Roughly a 90-mile round trip from Cambridge, for the record.)

                1. re: Allstonian

                  No i just figured the name/address and phone on the link i provided would cover it! But i guess that is not search engine friendly
