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.

“Every year it is our indulgence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

We make a special trip to the FTPC each year during our trip to Traverse City. This year was just as rewarding. Just adding our all the stars we can give it for pleasant service, tasty lunch sandwiches, and yum- pie.

“Better than homemade (almost)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

When you are in a hurry and you don't want to take time to duplicate mom or grandmas pie recipe - this is the place to go - Blueberry Crumb or Cherry Crumb or Apple Crumb - Yum, Yum

“Best Blue Berry Pie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We actually were here in mid June of 2013. Trip Advisor won't let me go back that far though. The service was impeccable and they were quite fast waiting on customers. We ordered an entire blue berry pie to take back to the hotel and it was divine. My 4 and 5 year old daughters loved it just as much as my husband and parents. Wish I could have tried another of their pies but we didn't want too many sweets. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone traveling through the area.

Great place to start the day for breakfast. Kids loved the muffins. Back room had two large tables for big groups. The French silk chocolate pie was fabulous.
