Buttermilk pie at Hominy
| Bill Addison

With all the produce flourishing in the Lowcountry, there are some amazing pies to be had in Charleston. Unfortunately, many of those amazing, crusty, bubbly desserts need to be ordered ahead. Sometimes you just can't wait 48 hours for a slice of apple or pecan goodness, so we put together a list of restaurants that almost/pretty much will have a pie on hand for you to consume on whim — and sometimes even a la mode.

While bakeries like Swank, Brown's Court, and Sugar make some kick-ass pies, reserve them for days you're actually thinking ahead for your dessert needs. These picks are the here and now for your sweet tooth. From buttermilk to key lime, there's a slice for every taste.

Barbecue spot Swig & Swine borrowed a few family recipes to stack its dessert list. The West Ashley restaurant offers 5-inch pies, because chef Anthony DiBernardo says he loves the idea of the guests having their very own pie. Look for flavors like chocolate-bourbon pecan and buttermilk.
