The food is always fresh - soups, salads, sandwiches, and the ambiance at both locations is great. Many locals convene there. It's great to stop for a quick lunch or coffee and dessert and then take home food for the family. The Pie Company is best known for its wide array of wonderful pies, and if you order ahead, you...

Healthy, easy, lunch. Very friendly and happy. Parking is difficult but worth the stop on and eat or call in and go.

We come here pretty often because there's not a better place for sandwiches and soups. Plus, their pies are amazing.

I was here recently for lunch. Had a chicken salad sandwich, it was very good. The cherry crumb pie was very good. The place was busy but service was still fast. The parking lot is small.

The Cherry crumb pie is to die for! Seriously, it is the BEST pie I have ever ate! We have even ordered them online and had delivered (We live in SE OH) when we get the craving and know we aren't going to be heading North. LOVE!!!!!

We stopped and had a great Apple Pecan caramel topped slice of pie and some delicious coffee in a cozy dinning room setting. We picked up a whole pie to take home for the holiday dinner. The price is right for a full pie - $17 - and it is really big. Check it out.

You can tell they just prepare processed food and slap a huge price tag on it along with their name. The pies are wet because of the margarine used instead of butter and way way too much sugar.

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.
