Looking for a little slice of something sweet? Try these nine delicious pies at bakeries and restaurants in Raleigh, N.C.!
Angus Barn's Chocolate Chess Pie
award-winning chocolate chess pie is a sweet ending to a steak dinner. Ask your server for a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of this creamy, smooth slice of pie made with semi-sweet chocolate.
Beasley's Chicken + Honey's Lemon-Lime Pantry Pie
Bittersweet's Derby Pie
Cozy up with an evening coffee and a slice of Bittersweet's derby pie. You'll love the salted caramel on top of this chocolate-bourbon pecan pie. And yes, evening coffee certainly means you can add a shot of Frangelico to your latte.
Boulted Bread's Hand Pies
Boulted Bread switches things up every week in downtown Raleigh. They bake up delicious hand pies and rotate flavors to include buttermilk chess pie, chocolate chess pie and black bottom oat pie. Yes, this means you don't have to share! Hand pies are definitely meant for one.
Crawford and Son's Sugar Cream Pie
Pastry chef Krystle Swenson is proving to be one of the most talented pastry chefs in Raleigh. At Crawford and Son, her Sugar Cream Pie is not to miss. Served with lemon cream and a huckleberry sherbet, the medley of flavors are perfection. It's okay if you order a second slice.
Hayes Barton Cafe and Dessertery's Peanut Butter Mousse Pie
Go big or go home! That's certainly the philosophy at Hayes Barton Cafe. This Raleigh institution is serving up pies more than five-and-a-half inches high. A slice of peanut butter mousse pie can easily be shared but don't hold back if you want to devour it solo. The cafe starts with a graham cracker crust and then adds a thin layer of chocolate. A creamy peanut butter mousse serves as the filling and, of course, is covered in more chocolate and topped with whipped cream.
Mandolin's Sweet Potato Pie
Owner and chef Sean Fowler of Mandolin creates a fabulous and quintessential Southern dessert, the sweet potato pie. Topped with Chantilly cream, this pie is the perfect ending to a meal at Mandolin and an ode to chef Sean's N.C. roots.
Remedy Diner's Coconut Cream Pie
The coconut cream pie at Remedy Diner is a crowd favorite. This vegan pie is made with silken tofu, and the delicious filling is nestled in a crystallized brown sugar pie crust. The pie is topped with shaved coconut and vegan whipped cream.
Winston's Grille's Key Lime Pie
For a key lime pie that has withstood the test of time, head to Winston's Grille (pictured in header). Their recipe has remained the same since they opened their doors in 1986 and is traditionally made with key lime juice and a graham cracker crust. It's best enjoyed on the patio with a glass of wine!
