The Cherry crumb pie is to die for! Seriously, it is the BEST pie I have ever ate! We have even ordered them online and had delivered (We live in SE OH) when we get the craving and know we aren't going to be heading North. LOVE!!!!!

We stopped and had a great Apple Pecan caramel topped slice of pie and some delicious coffee in a cozy dinning room setting. We picked up a whole pie to take home for the holiday dinner. The price is right for a full pie - $17 - and it is really big. Check it out.

You can tell they just prepare processed food and slap a huge price tag on it along with their name. The pies are wet because of the margarine used instead of butter and way way too much sugar.

Terrific bakery, very good variety of baked goods and best coffee in town. Go hungry, have soup and sandwich and pie, buy more pies to take home and savor later.

This place is basically a very good coffee, sandwich, soup shop with awesome pot pies, clean surroundings, and ridiculously good pies! Be prepared to take one home and start a new addiction.

(Pies only no food) These are the best bought pies I have ever had (69 yrs). Worthy of their $$ price. These are special treat/occasion pies. Wonderful !

At least once a week, we stop in for coffee and a turnover or sticky bun. Sometimes we will get a Pot Pie to go for dinner later.

From the moment you walk in you know you have made a right turn. I love love love this place. All their pies are yummiest on earth. They even custom made us a pie we had several years ago that they stopped advertising on the menu. The friendliest, sweetest people on earth work here, and you can taste the love... More

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.
