This dessert spot in an industrial building by the water sells large key lime pies, small key lime pies, and key lime pies that have been frozen and covered in chocolate (these are called Swingles, and they come on sticks, like lollipops). There are a few picnic tables outside where you can eat your pie(s) of choice.
