We go to town just to walk around and always have a hard time walking by the pie company. A great place for a cup of coffee and excellent pie. We also like their salads and wraps. Always friendly and quiet.

During a girls weekend, Grand Traverse offered a number of sweet treats we could take back with us to the hotel and enjoy with some wine to Eva the evening.

The very best price around anywhere.... And with two (2) locations in downtown Traverse City alone, you MUST stop and spoil your taste buds 😂🤗. They also have awesome lunch specials, too much to mention and I don't cannot choose favorite pie!!! "I'll take one slice of each please!"

Have to stop here. We had the Strawberry Rhubarb pie, warmed, with ice cream. Of course I started on that while I waited for my cherry chicken salad wrap. Didn't have much room left to eat the wrap! No worries. I say always start with dessert. Came with chips, or applesauce or coleslaw. I had the chips. They were just... More

The staff was not very friendly. It's definitely a quick lunch place. Tables were not clean and it's counter service only. So no waitresses. He basically went there for the pie, and that was disappointing. Now we've ordered them from the store in Grand Rapids and they were great. This is definitely not a great place for lunch.

This is our "go to" place to take family and friends from Out of town. You can't beat the menu and the price and oh my! the pie! Some of our out of state family already knew about the Pie Co. and wanted to go there as part of the Michigan experience!

We have been coming here for years for the pie. They have since added lunch and breakfast years ago and the food is great, too. Many choices for breakfast as well as lunch. Lots of sandwiches and salads to choose from for lunch. But, always leave room for the homemade pies.

I've been to other GT Pie Company locations around the state, and this one at 525 Front in Traverse City, is the best one. The food is always top-notch, the atmosphere is friendly and relaxing, the staff is wonderful, and it has local "Sunday Morning" hot tea. I usually get the combo -- a half a cherry chicken sandwich and... More

GT Pie gets a lot of amazing reviews. Many people like this place. I am fussy. I want a pie crust that is light and flaky. GT Pie does not do this sort of crust, so on that basis, I can only give one star, but their filling is good.

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.
