Growing up in a strongly Celtic setting, I learned about pasties from a young age. I also learned that not all pasties are created equal... These are very good pasties. The steak and potato pastie (traditional... More

Everything was delicious and the service was great! Wish we could have tried the breakfast pasty, but it gives us a reason... More

Sitting in the middle of Traverse City, we walked into Cousin Jenny's. A lot of folks were ordering the Cornish Pasties, but we decided on the Cherry Chicken Salad Wrap and the Cob Salad. I don't know this for a fact, but this area of Michigan seems to harvest a lot of cherries. The chicken salad with cherries was really... More
