The Search for the Best Key Lime Pie in Los Angeles


Pixie Gid went to Bristol Farms for some tasty, sweet treats for her Fab Five Girls. She brought a variety of little cakes, thinking that there would be something for everyone (Bristol Farms does have a pretty good selection). As it turned out, the girls had never tasted Key Lime Pie and went crazy for it.

Well, Pixie Gid thought it would be fun to bring the Girls a pie so she asked me to help her find the best Key Lime Pie in Los Angeles. So I thought, and thought, about delicious bakeries all over Los Angeles County. There's Vanilla Bake Shop in Santa Monica, Joan's on Third and Sweet Lady Jane, Jamaica's Cakes in Culver City, Susina, Kiss My Bundt, Cake Monkey... Tender Greens in Weho twittered about their Key Lime Pie last week. I was there a couple days ago and they didn't have any. Finally I settled on Susina Bakery on Beverly Blvd. I heard raves about their Key Lime Pie. I'll keep you posted what the girls think of it.

The search is still on. Do you have a recommendation for a fab Key Lime Pie? If so, we need your help. Leave a comment below with your suggestion. And if you have an outstanding recipe, leave that too. Thanks in advance for your help.

It's not on the menu but one of the best is at the Coffee Shop/Diner at the Beverly Hills Hotel. I ate once at the Polo Lounge for lunch and the waiter told us about it. It was in fact delicious

I've never had Key Lime Pie ... I think I'll have to try to wrangle an invitation from Gid

Never mind LA. Searching for the best KLP in the US, after an exhausting whirlwind tour of FL, (Tough Job Dept.) we found the best at LEGAL SEAFOODS in Boston. Who knew!
