Below are our reviews of the key lime places the New York Times suggested when visiting the Florida Keys:
Comments: filling was the perfect consistency but could have had a tad for lime, delicious buttery graham cracker crust but was little too thick, unsweetened cream was perfect, and the ripe strawberries and raspberry sauce topped everything off very nicely.
Porky’s Bayside Restaurant
Comments: filling wasn’t “eggy” enough and needed more lime, unsure if they used real whipped cream (Note, they also offer a fried version but we opted for the “healthier” option)
Pepe’s Café and Steak House
Comments: fluffy filling, tartness of filling was perfect, whip cream tasted great but was a little thin, crumbly graham cracker crust was tasty
*We ate dinner here and the food was excellent. The blackened fish sandwich and corn on the cob were amazing!
Comments: Gross, chalky, bland
Blond Giraffe (frozen key lime pie on a stick covered in chocolate)
Kermit’s Key West Lime Shoppe
Comments: weird flavor, not a good graham cracker crust
Kermit’s Key West Lime Shoppe (frozen key lime pie on a stick covered in chocolate)
Comments: good quality chocolate, filling was the perfect tartness
Comments: unique presentation, good texture, needs a tad more lime, needs to be served colder
