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.

“Lunch Review”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

This place is in downtown and located opp Chase Bank. It is very close to the parking lots which face the west grand traverse beach. We had the chicken focaccia with tomato basil, veggie Mediterranean sandwich and chicken pot pie. The chips served with the sandwiches were perfect, I look for the salt and cripyness. The chips didnt break my teeth. We finished off with slices of pie. They had over 14 choices for pies an you could get any by the slice. You can order any an wont be disappointed . They have an extensive desert, breakfast and salad menu. A must visit for lunch and desserts when you are in Traverse City downtown.

“Loved it”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

My family of five ate at the original restaurant. I wasn't feeling well, so I sampled the chicken noodle soup (yummy), and everyone else enjoyed their beef or chicken pot pies. We each picked out a piece of pie to take back to our hotel to enjoy the next day. Delicious! And affordable!

“Every year it is our indulgence”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

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.

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”
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.
