The best pie you will ever eat. My family always wants Lakeshore Berry and I love the peach but you can't go wrong. The food is good, too.

Had my usual and the pie was too sweet and when the slice was cut it got really messy. The place was too crowded. Staff was not as friendly as they once were.

Oh my was this some good pie. There were many choices, but figured we had to get the cherry given the Michigan cherry culture. It was a very good decision. Added a scoop of ice cream and they warmed up the pie. I am still thinking about it.

Enjoyed a business lunch at this location. Even though it was busy our service was quick, friendly, and the food was great! The ginger ale cherry pie was amazing!

We asked the clerk if they shipped pies. She said yes but not from that location. She provided a phone number but when we called we got a message saying we will receive a free answering machine. Called back and given another number. Was sent to a voice mail server. This was on Aug. 25, 2016. Very blasé toward us... More

Our family bought 2 pies while visiting Traverse from out of state this summsr. We tried the blueberry and this summers special Vernor's cherry pie. Both were good but $45 for 2 pies was definitely a splurge. We took the pies to share with family in the Detroit area, only to discover they have a store there too! I would... More

Excellent service, always greeted with a smile and a real desire to serve the customer. As said before, the blueberry muffins are to die for. By the way, their cherry pie with the sugar topping and a scoop of ice cream.....out of this world!! Just go for it!!!

The pies here are just not to be believed...! Been going to this shop for over 10 years and we've never had a bad pie. In fact ever pie we've ever tried here was just incredibly delicious. Forget about any diets though when you come here. It's just too good! We generally get an assortment of the cherry and fruit... More

Their Traverse City Cherry Pie is to die for! Tart cherries and a flaky crust is delicious. The Coconut Cream Pie, with the homemade like, flaky crust, has lots of coconut in it. The taste is excellent. Also, cookies and smaller pastries are sold there. Grand Traverse Pie Co. has a small seating area for dining. Their sandwiches taste like... More

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.
