We raised the bar when it came to 2017’s National Pie Day with our homemade key lime pie. Our executive chef, Mark Hill, makes each pie from scratch as a miniaturized whole pie rather than a boring, traditional slice. He also adds in sour cream to the filling to spoil your tastebuds, and the house-made whipped topping is dusted with toasted coconut. There’s a secret ingredient that chef Mark uses in the graham cracker crust, Don Q coconut rum.
