So tasty: These are the best pie shops in Tampa

Happy Pi Day, Tampa. OK, we know it doesn’t mean pie, but we’re always looking for any excuse to indulge in one of our favorite desserts.

Here’s a collection of our favorite spots for a slice of pie around Tampa. Let us know yours in the comments below! If we included all of our favorites the list would go on and on and on and on — see what we did there?

 

Alessi

2909 W. Cypress Street, Tampa

Alessi Bakery is a true Tampa landmark dating back over a century to 1912, making it one of the few historic restaurant establishments in the area.

It has been over 100 years since Alessi Bakery’s first inception in 1912. The family behind this business insisted on quality, hard-work, consistency and customer service and has passed this down for four generations. Their love, experience, and knowledge have made the Alessi family bakery the most successful and well-known bakery in Tampa.

While there are so many mouthwatering desserts to try, we suggest digging in to the most beautiful strawberry cream pie you’ve ever seen.

The best thing to put into our peanut butter pie is your fork! 😋#thedessertspot

Dessert Spot at Toffee To Go 

3251 W. Bay to Bay Boulevard, Tampa

The Dessert Spot at Toffee to Go is one of our favorite decadent indulgences. They’re not serving flavors you’ve never seen before, but they’re delivering a taste you’ve never ever experienced. The peanut butter pie is absolutely addicting. The filling is a fluffy dream and it’s all topped with Reese’s Cup crumbles and chocolate drizzle.

The Dutch apple pie and pecan pie are both customer favorites too. Trust us, this place is dangerous if you have a sweet tooth.

Goody Goody

1601 W Swann Ave, Tampa

Goody Goody was the first drive-in east of the Mississippi. It opened here, in Tampa, in 1925 and closed in 2005. Because of the popular demand for the burgers, fries, and pies — especially the famous butterscotch pie — the current owners purchased all the old recipes, the building, and the Goody Goody sign with the intention of keeping these pies in the Bay for a while.

Wright’s Gourmet

1200 S. Dale Mabry Highway, Tampa

While gourmet entrées for take-out have been the rage of the last decade, Marjorie and Pete Wright offered gourmet entrees To-Go in 1963. They didn’t have any great insight into the future, but they did believe that if their customers asked for an item, Wright’s would be the first and the best at offering it.  Their menu rightfully boasts, “You haven’t lived ‘til you’ve treated yourself to one of our extravagant desserts.”

Wright’s old fashioned pecan pie is the most satisfying pie in Tampa and it comes with our highest praise.

Mike’s Pie

8625 Florida Mining Blvd, Tampa

The story behind Mike’s Pies is a cute one for sure. Mike, a rugged linebacker playing football at the University of Kentucky in the 70’s loved to eat, specifically loved to eat his mom’s pies. However, everyone knows the struggle of waiting until the holidays to eat their favorite foods. So, his mom gave him a crash course on how to bake the perfect pie. Mike’s Pies and Coffee Shoppe in Tampa, Florida is the cornerstone of this unique company. To this day, Mike’s remains committed to a quality product, without the use of fillers, preservatives, or other artificial ingredients. They cut no corners at Mike’s Pies because as Mike likes to say, “there are no corners on Pies!”
