I've always preferred cake and dislike rubarb UNTIL I had their strawberry rhubarb pie. It was my new favorite UNTIL I tried their Apple crum, now I can't go back because all I do is stare and drool at the delicious selections. Ain't life tough!

Who doesn't love pie? Grand Traverse Pie Company makes many good pies, but get your pie to go. My primary grip is with a place specializing in pie using a microwave to reheat the pie, which GTP does. When you heat pie in a microwave...More

Everything is good, but the tomato soup and grilled cheese is my favorite for lunch. All of the pies are delicious and great to take home or for a pot luck.

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.
