Craft Kafé

200 Central Avenue

Gluten-free folks know the drill, Craft Kafé is the go-to spot for decadent chocolate on chocolate whoopie pies. They’ve also made some of our favorite holiday pies like pumpkin and apple. Seriously, you can’t go wrong with any of their baked goods. OH and their brioche buns are divine. Okay, now we’re hungry.

Yoder’s Amish Market

3434 Bahia Vista St, Sarasota

The pies at Yoder’s are made fresh from scratch every morning. You can get them by the slice or the whole pie. Yoder’s has become a local tradition and favorite destination for many.  The quality and freshness that began over a million pies ago is still the foundation of our strong customer loyalty and success.  From the time the doors first opened on Main Street, Yoder’s Restaurant has established a culture of hearty portions and quality Amish home cooking, served with friendly service in a family atmosphere.

The banana cream pie is heavenly and absolutely worth the drive to Sarasota.

Pie Factory

12777 Walsingham Rd, Largo

While Pie Factory is a little out of the way for those of us who hate leaving the Burg, you are gonna want to get out to Largo to experience the true Key West Tradition. Their Key Lime Pie is made from a recipe handed down for generations. So sit back, relax, and enjoy an old Key West atmosphere as you stuff your face full of the best Key Lime Pie in Tampa Bay.
