When it comes to our famous pies or our amazing breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus the secret is simple - our first ingredient is always love! We are a family-owned restaurant that has proudly served up gourmet home-cooking and a warm atmosphere on the North Shore of Lake Superior since 1996. Our bakery boasts an extensive selection of berry pies, cream pies, and specialty pies, alongside cookies and cakes and other seasonal desserts! Pies are baked daily entirely from scratch using all of the best available ingredients to ensure a flavor unlike any other. But at The Pie Place Café, we're about more than just pies! Locals and visitors alike enjoy our summer breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. We've been called the best breakfast on the North Shore and it's not hard to see why with our popular Maple Sausage Patties, omelets, and pancakes. Our lunch and supper menus feature favorites like the Black Bear Blueberry Salad and Three Meat Maple Meatloaf - hands down the best meatloaf we've ever tried! Whether you're joining us for one of our namesake pies or an unforgettable Pie Place Café dinner, we look forward to making you feel right at home.

Great food

This is the second time we have been here the food is fantastic. I will keep coming back but the staff needs a little work. Every time I have been there everyone is running around and no one seems like they want to help. At one point I came in to order a pie and we waited for 10 minutes... read more

If I could score a 3.5 for The Pie Place, I would. I've dined with them for breakfast three times in the last ten days. During my first two visits the Northwoods Benedict was delicious. Mmmmm... That sausage is to die for despite the consistently small portion. The cheesy potatoes are a must have too. Service was slow during each... More

Went in to order a pie to be picked up the next day, meaning I wanted it fresh. Stood around for almost 10 minutes waiting to be waited on.

The view from our table was wonderful. The waitress was very attentive and recommended the soup that turned out to be something that I will want to try to recreate at home?? Radish/dill soup...yummy. We were too full for pie, but I will know better next time to save room for dessert. Great place and am glad I stopped there... More

We can tell a person really enjoyed their meal when they want to recreate it at home, so it's awesome to hear how much you loved your soup! You have to promise us, though, that you'll stop in after your soup for some of our pie -- we know you'll love it just as much. Thanks again -- hope to... More

First time service by a woman was great and second time the service by a young man was slow and forgetful and disinterested until he brought the bill.

My wife and I shared a delicious hot portobello mushroom and melted cheese sandwich on chibata bread. The wait staff was very understanding about splitting an order, bringing a second plate with our sandwich. We split our lunch in order to save room for pie, as we seldom order desert. I ordered and received the last piece of fresh maple... More
