Ordering was a little slow, but it's expected during the summer high season. Great variety of pies with Cherry pie being my favorite. Wish I could've taken a whole pie home. Worth the wait.

This place knows what it is doing! The pies are excellent, especially with a dip of vanilla ice cream and warmed just a bit. Recommend the cherry crumb, strawberry-rhubard, cherry and the apple! So, so good!

I went here twice in my trip. First, I had a salad with chicken and dried cherries. Very good! The next day, my sister and I split the Manitou sandwich (turkey, ham, bacon with pesto mayo) and the Mountain Berry Crumble. Ohmygoodness! The food was...More

Didn't stay to eat, but took a Cherry Crumb Pie to go and it was everything the previous reviews had said. Wouldn't leave TC without a visit here. Next time we can't wait to try one of the many other choices of pies they offer.

An excellent place to eat, pie is so delicious. I would recommend eating there any time they are open. I really enjoy it.

I have been there a few times over the years or have had pies from them and never have been disappointed. To me it is a bit pricey, but I guess that is the price of pie these days.

Louis, thank you very much for your review and feedback. We take a lot of pride in our pies - made with Michigan fruit, flour, and sugar. We hope to see you again soon!

Their lunch items are very good, especially the quiche. We no longer like the fruit pies at all. They now mix flour or some other white filling with the fruit and, as a result, the taste and texture of the pies has suffered. We normally...More

Fairlanetom, thank you for your review and feedback. We have not changed our pie recipes and the only ingredients mixed with our fruit are flour and sugar. However, sometimes our crumb pies can have the "cream cheese effect" which we like to call it. In...More

Great salads, sandwiches and, of course, pies! I love their tomato basil soup paired with any sandwich.

Description
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.
