As Florida as it gets

View as Map

Here’s a little history lesson for you. Just about 10 years ago, the Florida House and Senate came together for a (rare) agreement to pass a bill into law. And know what that bill was? Declaring Key Lime pie as the official pie of the state of Florida.

Needless to say, the sweet-yet-tart pie is a Florida institution and just about every restaurant in town serves some sort of variation of it. So here's a list of the best eight in Miami, listed in geographical order from north to south, that showcase the pie in all its glory.

1. Blue Collar

6730 Biscayne Blvd
Miami, FL
(305) 756-0366
Visit Website

A proper comfort food eatery in Florida would be remiss to not have a key lime pie on its menu, and Blue Collar’s variation is one of the best because it has a homemade touch. And reason for that is because it is actually homemade from scratch by Meghan Perkins, wife of one of the restaurant’s biggest fans, Billy Corben.

2. dbakers Sweet Studio

The key lime pie at dbakers is as beautiful as it is tasty. Made with fresh key limes, a graham cracker crust, and it’s piled high with a burned Italian meringue that helps create the perfect ratio of sweet to tart.

3. Fireman Derek's World Famous Pies

Fireman-turned-baker Derek Kaplan has quickly become the king of Miami’s pie bourgeoning pie scene. And the star of his pie menu?

Hankering for just a bite or two of key lime pie? Then grab one of Pink Pie’s miniature sized key lime pies, that is roughly an inch in diameter yet full of flavor.

5. The Restaurant at W South Beach

It’s hard to get more Miami than The Restaurant at W South Beach’s (RWSB) take on the classic Florida pie. The restaurant uses the traditional key lime pie as its base, then adds to the slice a pineapple crisp, caramel sauce, and scoop of mango sorbet, to take the flavors up a few notches.

6. KUSH Wynwood

Best known for its burgers, this Wynwood go-to sure knows another dish as well — pies. Its key lime pie features a tart center made with locally sourced key lime juice, nestled on top of graham cracker crust mixed with pecans to give it an extra crunch.

7. Icebox Cafe

Aside from its popular breakfast, the other thing this Sunset Harbour eatery is known for: its pies. (Oprah even praised them years back.) Icebox’s 9” deep dish key lime pie serves up a combo of sweet and tangy, topped with fresh whipped cream makes it a standout in a sea of pies. 

8. Joe's Stone Crab

11 Washington Ave
Miami Beach, FL

Almost as iconic as its namesake stone crabs is Joe’s key lime pie — but that hasn’t always been the case. According to legend it actually started as a mix up when a Chicago food critic in the '50s mistakenly mixed up the key lime pie he had at another restaurant with Joe’s then apple pie offering. But the error caused for a flood of requests, and the rest is history.

9. B Bistro + Bakery

It’s no question that B Bistro + Bakery’s desserts are as beautiful as they are tasty, and this rendition of the key lime pie is no different. Served in individual portions, this tart like version is topped with intentionally leaning mounds of whip cream and berries to make one eye-pleasing dessert. 

10. Whisk Gourmet

At this down-home, South Miami restaurant know for its rather decadent Southern eats, its key lime pie is a favorite way for diners to end their meal. Topped with berries and a dollop of freshly whipped cream, the tangy pie is the star and a restaurant favorite.
