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.

We stopped here with a big group to buy some pies to take home and have after dinner. We all agreed that they were the most delicious pies we've ever had! We bought the ABC pie (Apple, Blueberry, Cherry) and the Apple Caramel Crumb. OMG to die for! We all were licking our plates! They have a huge variety and everything we saw looked absolutely delicious.

Visited The Grand Traverse Pie Co during our recent vacation in Traverse City Michigan. My husband loved the cinnamon roll and I had my personal favorite Strawberry-Rhubarb crumb pie, with a cup of Mountain Cherry coffee. Very clean, relaxing place for a mid-afternoon snack. We loved it so much we stopped back again later in the week for another sampling. Apple Pecan Caramel crumb pie was incredible! Located just past the Downtown shopping area on Front St, it's a must stop!

The Cherry Crumb pie is almost worth the 5 1/2 hour drive from home to get one. The Apple Crumb is also very good. It is a nice place to relax and treat yourself.

Ate twice at the Grand Traverse Pie Company. First was west a bit out of town from downtown. Lunch. Ordered chicken pot pie and the grilled Lighthouse sandwich. The former was absolutely one of the best ever eaten! The latter was very good but not as good as the sandwich the day before in Petoskey Michigan at Julienne Tomatoes Deli & Bakery. The cole slaw with the sandwich was perfect however here at the Pie Company. We ordered the three berry pie and lemon meringue pie (slices). The former was great. The latter was not so good and it was actually warm!

The second day we stopped just for pie. Blueberry crumble and cherry crumble were ordered. The latter was really tasty but the blueberry slice of pie was heavenly! We bought a small $7.99 to go to have the next day on the road for lunch. (Stopped at Wendy’s to secure soft serve for topping the next day!)
