Very friendly staff, so many choices of pies, muffins, sandwiches, soups, salads, and potpies. Plus, other desserts. Everything was wonderful

Since we were in Traverse City, we had to get some cherry pie. The cherry crumb was delicious. It's worth stopping in for some pie. It is very clean and spacious.

This place came highly recommended by a couple of friends, but I was very disappointed. The quiche was bland and not baked enough. I had the apple crumble with pecans and caramel pie. It was pretty good, but I ordered it ala mode and expected...it to be warm. It was room temp so that was disappointing. The edge of the pie was pretty hard, which made it difficult to eat.More

Having grown up in Michigan, I was familiar with the wonderful cherries that are grown in the Traverse Bay Area. But I was not prepared the great pie made with those cherries by the Grand Traverse Pie Company. It is one of the best pie...pieces of pie I’ve ever had in my life!More

Ordered a to go pie for My husbands birthday bc he loves cherry pie. Took Pie out of box when got home and it was burnt and there were no cherries inside just cherry juice gel. Had to eat some of the pie bc that...was the only dessert but the rest was thrown out. Visited this place several times in Traverse City probably with original Owners when the pies were excellent…… but will no longer visit TCPC. TCPC needs to do better with quality control as this pie should had NEVER been boxed and sold to the customer!More

We ordered two shipped pies for my Birthday. We particularly love the GT pies and place an order every year. This year, the pies arrived underbaked. The top crust was very slightly golden, and the underneath of the top crust was still dough. I reached...out through the company's website several weeks ago and they did not provide any response. I re-baked the pies and had some improvement, but they were not edible enough to serve to my guests. A very disappointing experience, and we will not be returning.More

While visiting Traverse City, MI we were told this was a great local spot for lunch. It was just okay. You wait in line to order, wait until your name is called with your order, pick up your food, get your own drink, napkins, silverware...then find a spot to sit. This is not being treated or served lunch-it's do it yourself. The food was fine, again, nothing special, just average and we enjoyed a slice of pie, but no ice cream to put on top. Makes the crust and crumb topping very dry. Very crowded, very noisy and just okay. If we visit again, we won't return here.More

Although I have had good lunches here I was not impressed with their $10, 6 inch Mountain Berry Crumb pie. All crust and crumb and very little filling. Over priced and under satisfying.

Waited over twenty minutes to get a pie because their computers were down! Why can’t a pie company operate without a computer; or why can’t they maintain their computer system?

My wife wanted a coffee, but didn't want to risk parking on Front Street. So she walked over and got breakfast burrito (fantastic!!) and a breakfast sandwich on a croissant (also fantastic). She thought her coffee was good! We also got a Pot Pie that...we had for a late lunch back at our apartment. Good, not great. We did enjoy the breakfast so much we went back and got a Peach Turnover and Cream Cheese Cinnamon Roll. Overall great experience. Would definitely go back again!More

When you walk into this restaurant you are immediately drawn into the wonderful aromas. There is usually a line (the food is that good) but we ordered a cherry muffin while we waited for our pies and it was the best muffin I have ever...tasted. They will even ship their delicious pastries!More

This is a solid sandwich shop in Traverse City along with some great homemade pies as well. Stopped here on our way out of town and enjoyed a quick and quality lunch that hit the spot.

I don't think you need to make a reservation, they will do their best to make room if you have a crowd, they have excellent service and always a great meal or snack.

YES! My Son has Celiac and they do offer small individual pies which are premade at a separate facility. Once they were sold out so we drove to the other location for one to go. They also have gluten free bread!
