I was cracking rhubarb-strawberry pie, it was my birthday, I indulged. IMHO, the amount of fruit was minimal and there was so much sugarit overwhelmed the tartness of the rhubarb. I expected better after reading reviews and service was lackadaisical.

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!

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.
