They do a nice lunch here. I don't know if they do breakfast. Their food is fairly simple but very good. It's a great place for a bowl of soup or a sandwich. The portions are not overpowering. Take out is popular as well. I've met my wife here several times and we were usually able to get a table.... More

What else could someone want? The selection of pies is outstanding. Want it with whipped cream? Ok. Want it with ice cream? Ok. Soup and sandwiches are tasty. Relaxed environment. Great for lunch or for a snack.

The original Grand Traverse Pie Company location! Our first Pie Shop opened in July of 1996 by company founders, Mike and Denise Busley. The shop is conveniently located on West Front Street in Traverse City, Michigan, just a short walk from downtown and a block from West Grand Traverse Bay. Our open-air design has the kitchen in full view of our customers. There's comfortable seating for those who would like to sit and relax with a slice of pie and a cup of gourmet coffee. We also have great lunch selections, with quiches, soups, pot pie by the slice, salads, sandwiches, and wraps. We serve espresso, smoothies, and a variety of homemade baked goods.
