Here are our ratings:
Best pie with no meringue -- The Rooftop CafŽ, 308 Front Street. By far, our favorite slice of pie. This one seems to have browned butter and coconut in the graham cracker crust.
Best pie with meringue -- Blue Heaven, 729 Thomas Street, in Bahama Village. The custard is tangy, tart and just right. The meringue stands about a mile high and is perfectly browned on top. There is no weeping with this meringue, and the crust is amazing.
Best pie in different format -- Kermit’s Frozen Key Lime pie, 802 Duvall Street. This pie is frozen on a stick and dipped in chocolate. It probably rates the highest on a hot Key West afternoon.
So that’s our journey through the land of key lime pie. Emma and I decided there were no losers, as they all were great in their own way.
