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

My parents and I stopped in at 4:30 on a saturday after many unsuccessful stops at already closed cafes downtown. The resturant is set up so you walk in, order at the front register, and then have a seat until your name is called via a speaker. If they don't already have your food ready before you're finished paying that... More

The Manitou sandwich was to die for, and they have practically every pie you could think of. I loved the cherry berry pie and my boyfriend enjoyed the banana cream. We took a mini pie for the road!

If you don't want to spend a lot of time for lunch or dinner but also don't want typical fast-serve food this is a great choice. Pot pies for dinner and their cherry pie for desert hit the spot. Would go there again for sure.

Their (especially chicken) pot pies are the best! If you are between appointments, and only have a short time, pot pies are ready to grab and eat. The atmosphere is airy and light by the windows. But there are some cozy, more private places for discussion during work meetings. Service is fast & friendly. For nIce weather, tables outside. One... More

During our three day visit to Traverse City, we ate twice at this fun restaurant. Best chicken pot pie I've EVER eaten. Menu includes many sandwiches, several soup selections, quiche and pot pies plus to-die-for home-made pies ( probably 20+ kinds), wonderful muffins, and several other decadent looking desserts/pastries. The employees looked and acted over-worked/tired and weren't particularly friendly, but... More

While standing outside reading the posted menu "Muffin Mike" came out and gave us menus and asked if we had any questions. Soon we were seated inside and he reviewed all the combos with us and pie flavors! What a great place: good service, friendly staff and the food was absolultely delish! I had the ABC crumble pie and it... More

Whenever we want a good pie, we go to Grand Traverse Pie Company. We particularly enjoy their Apple Pies with top crust the best. Cherry with top crust are delicious as well. Don't care for the crumble top pies so much however. We never eat in; we always buy a pie or two, to take to dinner at someone's house.... More

We arrived about 11 a.m., so breakfast was wrapping up and lunch was beginning. My oatmeal was delicious, as was my husband's chicken sandwich. The apple dumpling we shared was, without a doubt, the best apple pastry I've ever had. Excellent quality food, helpful , friendly service

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.
