Key Lime Pie isn't as common as I thought it would be along the Keys. Sure, everybody does it, but only a few do it right. Blond Giraffe is one of those who do it right.

The place itself is tiny and used to be all over Key West. Now, they have relegated to just one location in Islamorada (not even in Key West?). They use this as a home location and distribution where they are making Key Lime Pies by the dozen. It now resembles closer to a bakery than anything with lots of different options besides Key Lime Pies (even shakes).

I ordered their original Key Lime Pie and thought it was great! The meringue isn't nearly the size at Blue Heaven, but it doesn't need to be. I enjoyed their meringue layer on top way more because it was thicker and creamier. The pie itself wasn't nearly as good though. It was a bit more tart than sweet, but still overall decent.

It's in it's only little sweet spot on the side of the road, so you might pass it if you're not careful to look out for the giant giraffe. The people there are great and the place is clean. If you're coming from Miami, you can make this a stop before making your way further west. If you're coming back to Miami, you could also stop by and grab some pies for the family back.
