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.

I've stopped in here several times, for baked goods, which look amazing, but I am always a little disappointed when I actually try them. Nice dining area and in a nice location, though.

Stopped in for a late lunch on a Monday. Service was prompt with the soup&sandwiches arriving in less than 5 minutes. Loved the tomato bisque soup! Food was well prepared and hot. We enjoyed our stop very much.

My wife and I ate here twice! It was so good the first time. Fresh sandwiches and soups. Our cherry pie, that we split, was very tasty! (It was large enough portion to split.) Their menu is a little pricy, but value is good.

I saw the Grand Traverse Pie Company had a 5 star review, so I made sure to go there. I was not disappointed. That was the best cherry crumb pie I have ever eaten! I also had the Cheddar Broccoli soup. It was delicious! Service was great! I would go back again when I'm in town.

We stopped in for lunch on my birthday. I signed up for their rewards program and received a free small pie! We enjoyed the chicken pot pie for our lunch. Friendly staff and fantastic pie. Would highly recommend!

My Wife and I had a short amount of time to wait for our movie at the State Theatre so we popped in for a quick bite. We shared a Reuben sandwich and a bowl of tomato basil soup... both tasted homemade and were quite filling. I look forward to going back when we have more time.

Two Grand Traverse Pie outlets are available in Traverse City. One downtown, and one further west on Front Street. Both are of equal quality and great places to grab luck or a piece of what I consider the best pies made. My favorite is Banana Cream, but there is no disappointment with any pie here. Lunch fare is soup and... More

Grand Traverse Pie Co has pie selections like I've never seen before and the pies are as good or better than home made. I have a couple of favorites: Carmel Apple Pecan and Mountain Berry. They also have a restaurant where you can sit down and have breakfast or lunch or get it to go. The food is very good... More

I have lived in traverse city for many years but have never reviewed GT pie company. Overall, if you are looking for a fresh pie, it fits the bill. My major concern relates to the inefficiency of how customers are processed through. When I went there today, there was a line of people waiting and the front cashiers did not... More
