This place is out of business . Had eaten here in the past but on this visit they are closed for business. I was told by a local that the pie place does baking for area restaurants.

I'm so sad they have coded this restaurant! They're website explains that they're closing their dining room and focusing only on outside catering and retail pies.

Went here with friends who come to Grand Marais often, they are foodies. I am sure a big part of our issue was the timing. When a big weekend is coming up (MEA) you staff accordingly. We had only two wait persons; the young men...More

The pie was decadent, it was hard to choose just one! We'd seen "dog friendly patio" advertised, but it's a couple tables on the sidewalk out front, kind of in the way of passers by. Beautiful view from those seats though! The wind was too...More

When it comes to our famous pies or our amazing breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus the secret is simple - our first ingredient is always love! We are a family-owned restaurant that has proudly served up gourmet home-cooking and a warm atmosphere on the North Shore of Lake Superior since 1996. Our bakery boasts an extensive selection of berry pies, cream pies, and specialty pies, alongside cookies and cakes and other seasonal desserts! Pies are baked daily entirely from scratch using all of the best available ingredients to ensure a flavor unlike any other. But at The Pie Place Café, we're about more than just pies! Locals and visitors alike enjoy our summer breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. We've been called the best breakfast on the North Shore and it's not hard to see why with our popular Maple Sausage Patties, omelets, and pancakes. Our lunch and supper menus feature favorites like the Black Bear Blueberry Salad and Three Meat Maple Meatloaf - hands down the best meatloaf we've ever tried! Whether you're joining us for one of our namesake pies or an unforgettable Pie Place Café dinner, we look forward to making you feel right at home.
