The 7 Very Best Places In Nashville To Get Pumpkin Pie
It’s that time of the year again, folks. The leaves are changing, apple cider is overflowing from the shelves at Kroger, and pumpkin pie is on its way. There’s something cozy about a good pumpkin pie, and these seven bakeries in Nashville know how to make it just right. Whether you want a slice to finish off your country kitchen meal or you want a whole pie to take home to share with the family (or eat by yourself — we don’t judge), you’ll need to visit one of these spots where the pies are simply the best of the best.
7. Dulce Desserts
While Dulce Desserts is typically more known for their absolutely stunning wedding cakes, every fall they break out the old pumpkin pie recipe, and some folks swear it's the best thing at the bakery. 717 Craighead St.
6. Sweet Creations Pie Bakery
Sweet Creations in North Nashville has been holding down the top echelons of the "best pie in the city" list for a while, and their pumpkin pie is up to that standard. You can order large pies or personal-sized tartlets! 942 Jefferson St.
5. The Goo Goo Shop
The Goo Goo Shop sells pies?!? Yes, good people, they do. Every Fall they break out seasonal pies, and while their original combination candy bars are typically the real draw here, don't pass on the pie. 116 3rd Ave S.
4. The Mockingbird
The Mockingbird is Nashville celebrity chef Maneet Chauhan's spin on Americana classics, which of course means they have these stunningly beautiful pumpkin pies every Fall. It's so pretty you almost don't want to eat it! Almost. 121 12th Ave N.
3. Dozen Bakery
Tucked into the depths of Wedgewood-Houston, Dozen Bakery is one of the best hidden gems in the city. You might know them as the supplier of bread and pastries for the entire list of Nashville's top restaurants (
). Their pie is amazing, and you simply need it. 516 Hagan St #103.
2. The Loveless Cafe
Loveless Cafe at the start of the Natchez Trace is known for their biscuits and home cooking, so it's no surprise that they serve pumpkin pie and that it's out of this world. Be sure to get there early, as there is often a wait here. 8400 TN-100.
1. Merridee's Breadbasket
Right off of Main Street in Franklin, Meridee's has the best breakfast and baked goods you'll find anywhere in Williamson County. They have seasonal treats throughout the year, including whole pumpkin pies around Thanksgiving time. Pick one up and see what makes this spot so magical. 110 4th Ave S.
