Have you ever walked into a bakery and were unable to decide what to order? Well you won’t have that problem at Steve’s Key Lime Pie.
It’s easy to admire someone who’s perfected one thing and then built a business out of it. Such is the case with Steve. His key lime pies, a perfect balance of tart and sweet, are absolutely amazing—and that is all he sells in his Red Hook “waterfront bakery” housed in an old factory along the Gowanus Bay. He uses real, fresh squeezed key limes (yes, it’s true, some bakers don’t), real butter (why use anything else?) in the Graham cracker crust—all fresh ingredients.
When you go to Steve’s, the only choice you have to make is: 4-inch tart, 8-inch pie or 10-inch pie. Ah, if decisions could often be that simple.

P.S. After getting your key lime pie, check out the garden center on the far end of the building—it’s like walking into a beautiful jungle.
