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 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

Stopped in for quick lunch. Chicken soup was terrific and sandwiches were amazing. Service was fast. Took a pie to go; can't wait to try it.

I also did not receive my pie in time for Thanksgiving! I ordered in plenty of time, so I would not encourage others to order online if pies are needed for an important event. I also have to ask.....where are the cherries? My pie was a lot of filler and crumb topping. I paid way too much for pie and... More

We'd be happy to... More

I was assured pies would be delivered for Thanksgiving but they didn't. FedEx tracking says Friday. I will never do business with Grand Traverse Pie Co. again.

Let me just say that my wife and I thought it was great that we could do the "pick 2" option and choose a bowl of soup and a slice of pie! We both ended up having a salad and soup and a slice of pie, pecan pie for her and cherry peach crumble for me. Everything was delicious!
