Nothing says Key West quite like key lime pie. It doesn’t get much better than biting into the perfect slice of sweet and tart. Except it does because Key West Key Lime Pie Company dipped theirs in chocolate and put it on a stick. The handheld convenience is perfect for those who need their fix but also have a sunset to catch.
Key lime pie is the most iconic dessert in the Florida Keys and named after the small key lime fruit that naturally grows throughout the region. The Florida Keys have been enjoying this delicious pie since early 20th century.
The Key Lime Pie Company is located on 511 Greene Street in Key West
This place is absolutely adorable! From the old fashioned lighting fixtures and the canopy of limes hanging from the ceiling to the adorable hand painted stand mixers. It’s a colorful and playful way to celebrate this iconic Keys fruit! They even have a pie-making class where you can go behind-the-scenes and make your very own mini key lime pie in their kitchen. How fun is that?
These are award winning pies! No joke! They won an award from the American Pie Council... who knew there was a Pie Council? There is and they won. USA Today named them the best pie in Florida and I’m not going to argue with that. They are so good they even had a showdown with Bobby Flay on Food Network.
For my traditionalists (and chocolate haters) out there don’t worry they offer the OG key lime pie as well. Other amazing flavors like mango, coconut or even blueberry. Or try a delicious Key Lime Pie jelly beans if you don’t care for pie. But who doesn’t love pie?!
I was here for the chocolate! The hand dipped in chocolate key lime pie! And it was everything I wanted it to be! This amazing little treat was the perfect combination of tart lime and sweet chocolate goodness and on a stick. This is by far the best $5 dollar dessert in Key West! If you find yourself in the beautiful city of Key West I highly recommend making a stop for this incredible creation.
Key West Key Lime Pie Company also offers their pies on a stick and whole pies for purchase online.
