I have only had one thing from this place but would fly down to Louisville tomorrow for the caramel frosted cupcakes! We did a caramel frosted cake for my mother's birthday and it was superb.

The ice cream here is amazing. They also offer a huge array of cakes, pies, cookies, and cupcakes. Everything is fresh and homemade and pretty inexpensive. I'd recommend stopping in.

Stopped in after dinner while in town based on other reviews. They weren't wrong - this place has awesome treats!

One of my favorite dessert spots for years now. The original is still the best. Never had a bad slice of pie, and service is only slow when the line is out the door.

I have been going to Louisville for decades and just discovered the Pie Kitchen. The ice cream is great and really tastes homemade. We had the cherry, chess and butterscotch cream pies, all of which were excellent. Our advice: Darn the calories full cream ahead!
