  • What makes a Key Lime Pie a Key Lime Pie?  KEY LIMES, of course!  We make ours with authentic Key Lime juice from Key West, Florida.  This is one of our only imported ingredients, and we would never settle for less.  Key Limes are small, zesty limes that really pack a punch -- a very different experience from regular limes.  This pie is exquisite – digestive biscuit crust with a key lime filling, topped off with freshly whipped cream and fresh lime zest.  It’s unlike anything you’ve ever tasted before!  If a Key Lime Pie isn't made with authentic Key Lime juice, it's not a real Key Lime Pie.  This is the real deal.
  • Since I was a child, my favourite dessert has been French Silk Pie. If you’re a fan of a good chocolate tart, you shouldn’t miss this American classic. We begin by melting dark chocolate, then we whip eggs into it, one at a time, for at least ½ hour per pie. The effect is a dreamy, smooth chocolate that may take you by surprise. This pie is named very appropriately. Shortcrust base topped with freshly-whipped cream. Allergen note: This dessert contains raw pasteurised egg.
  • Our Coconut Cream Pie might be common in North America, but it is not common in Ireland! If you love coconut, you simply must try this dessert. For me, it’s the most glorious and seductive pie. I start with fresh shortcrust pastry, and fill it with a freshly-cooked coconut custard with bits of coconut in it. I top that off with freshly-whipped cream, sprinkle some toasted coconut on top, chill, and voila.  A couple of reviews on this pie:  "No words."  and "I have never tasted anything like this!"
