Walk up counter to order

The sandwiches we ordered were yummy. The kids had Mac and cheese. The pie came in generous slices, lots of flavor. The only draw back for me was that is wasn't a sit down restaurant.

This place is extremely popular, and the pies look delicious. However if you check out the ingredients lists on their website you will see that most items are made with very processed ingredients and some pretty bad stuff, and some chemicals... sadly this is how much of the American diet has turned - just the opposite of whole, simple pure...

Purchased 3 varieties of pies to sample and loved them all. They were piping hot and very fresh. Will definitely go back - their other pastries looked great, too.

We had the cherry crumb pie with whipped cream! It was excellent, and so nice to sit outside and watch all of the Front Street events.

This place is the best! I love the Cherry Crumb pie the most, but all of the pies are world class! If you are a pie lover, treat yourself to the Grand Traverse Pie Company!

Plus coffee, cakes and pastries. Oh my, everything is good. If you are on a diet don't even think about going in. I gained five lbs. just looking at the cherry pie, and blueberry pie. Yes they have cookies too. Pies for two are also available. Enjoy! 👍🏻👍🏻

One of my favorite places in Traverse. If you haven't been it's a must go! Great for a quick breakfast, or pick up a Chicken Pot pie for lunch/dinner, they are big enough to share!

We drive in to TC from the cottage to get pies. No pie in Leelanau County comes close. And while we pick up a pie or two we have lunch. I go with a fruit cup and a bowl of soup so I can feel ok eating a slice or two of pie back at the cottage.
