This restaurant was hopping! We stopped in for a cherry pie to go. Very friendly service. The pie is delicious, the cherry filling is tart and sweet and the crust is wonderful.

It's my all time fav from Grand Traverse Pie company! And it worths every penny! I really miss this place. Typically I'd consume a whole pie in one day. :)

They have some of the best pie period. Lunch was good, service was great, but the pie is a life changing experience. A must do if you're in TC.

Can't review this high enough!!! The pie with crust is the best around, the crumble topping ones make it more sweet and is over kill in my opinion. The rhubarb-strawberry is worth driving miles for!

The deserts and food more than made up for little ambience, though the restaurant was clean. My wife enjoyed her quiche, several different ones are available and my Ruben was among the best ever. We shared an outrageous peanut butter cup with hazelnut ganache. When...More

We committed the mistake of just buying one pie. We had a real fight for it at home. Yes, it is that good, that even after an abundant dinner, we managed to finish the five of us a whole pie. One of the best crusts...More

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.
