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.

We stopped by for breakfast and received an excellent meal. They make great omelettes & egg dishes and served wonderful Pie Place potatoes and great wild rice & cranberry bread. Pies were also excellent.

We've been to the "new" Pie Place twice in the past month. The location is wonderful, with a view of the harbor right in front. They have outdoor seating, so you can get the full view. The service is very good, although they were short-staffed on our last visit. So why the rating, you ask? I liked the original Pie... More

Really. Bar none. Over the years we have tried pies up and down the shore (which prides itself on its pies)and at several places in Grand Marais, and this is it. Berry pies are particularly good. The evening we were there they were out of blueberry (my favorite), so I had blueberry-cherry -- my new favorite, s much so that... More

We stopped in for a couple of pieces of pie to bring back to our Condo. We paid $11 for two slices. We couldnt believe how tiny they were. One slice was literally three inches in width. Taste was good but we felt like we were taken advantage of tourists. Not sure we will go back, there are too many... More

Although the waitstaff was very friendly when we came in, we nearly left without the pie we ordered for dessert since we were basically ignored once the main course was delivered. Coffee refills were hard to come by. The pie was delicious, but were pretty much out of the mood by the time it finally arrived.

Home cooking at its best. I'd eat there again and stay at the hotel too. Views are so beautiful from the restaurant.

My wife and friend tried the pie there (twice) and felt like they have never had better pie! The crust was delicious, as was the filling inside. Rustic Inn and Betty's Pies have nothing on this place.

This is a nice restaurant, with more upscale type foods and prices. Nice selection. Did not care for the breakfast potato hash browns. Not the normal hash browns one expects, but more a bland casserole type dish. Rest of breakfast was okay.

We're thrilled you've been loving the food! Knowing the selection has been up to par is really great feedback, so thanks for letting us know! We're sorry the hash browns weren't quite what you were expecting, though. That's really great for us to know, too, but we hope we'll get to welcome you back in for another meal someday! More
