Sweetie Pies Bakery in Gulf Shores, Alabama

21 Aug

Sweetie Pies Bakery is located just off Highway 59 (near Target) in Gulf Shores, Alabama. They have been in business since 1990, but this particular location is a relatively new one. It is a sparkling new and exceptionally clean little place. Lots of pink too — if you like that kind of thing. This area is the shopping hub for all of Baldwin County and Sweetie Pies luckily resides in the midst of all the hustle and bustle. Talk about a built-in audience!

The best pies? Pretty hard to argue with that one. Southern Living magazine has long sung the praises of Sweetie Pies. There is also a deli here offering soups, sandwiches and salads … and I’m sure it’s all very tasty. But don’t let any of that get in the way of your pie fix.

A towering meringue pie from Sweetie’s is a thing of beauty and wonder. Roughly 16 different types of pie are served up each and every day here. The pecan pie is simply fabulous — no doubt about that. And there are 4 different varieties of pecan pie to choose from. Seriously! Southern Pecan Pie, White Chocolate Pecan Pie, Tropical Pecan Pie, and Chocolate Pecan Pie. They sure make it tough on a guy to arrive at a decision. Prefer meringue topped creations? Well, you might want to order Key Lime Pie, Lemon Pie, Chocolate Cream Pie, Coconut Pie, or Peanut Butter Pie. You can also find Chess and Custard pies plus seasonal favorites like Pumpkin & Sweet Potato.

This colorful original painting (above) adorns the dining room wall inside Sweetie Pies. Looks like some kind of a fruit pie to me — and they have those as well. Apple, Blueberry, Cherry, Peach … they all sound good, don’t they? Whole pies range from $15 to $18 and single slices all go for $3.95. Don’t miss this place on your way to or from the beach. And if you live nearby, there’s really no reason why you should go to the time and trouble of baking your own pies. Sweetie Pies does it better than you. And if you don’t buy that, I want an invite to dessert at your place!

Whole Southern Pecan Pies do justice to the fine white lace they rest upon.

The sheer amount of chopped pecans inside each slice is mindblowing!

    We loved the bakery we were able to visit two times when we came to Foley to shop.
    My cousin & I drove from Milton Fl & Pensacola and came back again to find that the bakery was closed down. I know you had a place before in Foley are you going to do special orders at any time?? We talked to your neighbor @ bakery and she said you closed Dec. 31st. We were heart broken to see the doors closed when we came back to Foley,

    I am so depressed to see this place closed. My wife HATES pies but the chocolate pecan pie from here was the ONLY one she has ever liked. This may change our travel plans this summer. 😦
