Review Of Grand Traverse Pie Company
I am a cherry pie connoisseur and have spent a good part of my life in the Traverse City area I have to say the Grand Traverse Pies have gone downhill in the last few years. They have become very average. and I am speaking for their cherry pies. I dont know what they have done to them? And a pie is close to $30.00, which seems kind of high to me unless they are really good. Anyway in the summer when you can go out and pick your own cherries and make a pie an hour after picking them the bar is high. They do have very good iced sugar cookies!

I stopped in for a quick dinner and got a southwest wrap and a piece of no sugar added cherry pie as they didnt have any sugar free available. I was disappointed in the entire meal. The wrap was overly packed with lettuce and really messy. It was soggy and wouldnt stay together. They are known for their pies but I would not recommend the no sugar added ones. I might come back for a sugar free pie but that would be about it.
We stopped here for breakfast today and was pleasantly surprised. We both had quiche â â I had the Broccoli cheddar and my husband had the spinach, mushroom and cheese. The portion was large and came with pumpkin loaf. Delicious!Also took home a chocolate Baileys cream pie !
Grand Traverse Pie Company
Grand Traverse Pie Company isn’t my top choice for dinner in Troy, but it’s number one for cherry pie and that’s all that mattered for our recent visit. The cherry pie at this place is modestly priced as well as divinely delicious. My a la…mode serving cost just $4.99, and you will pay just $3.99 if you order your slice served neat.More
Thank you very much for the pie love, Citallwic. We’re so pleased to hear that you enjoy our homemade pies. We hope to see you again soon!
Great choice of pies, muffins and sandwiches. The Apple pie is excellent! One of the best in this area! This place is a little bit old style but anyway this is my fav place for a slice of pie with a cup of joe.
Hi Dorac, thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. We absolutely love to hear that you enjoy our shop and our homemade pies and baked goods too. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Although the food is very good at Grand Traverse Pie Company the Pie is really the star of the show here. The variety is excellent and they taste as good as they look. Also they always have tasters to tease you. Be sure to get…a pie to go as well.More

Grand Traverse Pie Co Closes Less Than A Year After Opening In Downtown Ann Arbor
Grand Traverse Pie Company franchisee Dave Ziegler closed his East Liberty Street location after opening in May 2012.
Angela Cesere | AnnArbor.com file photo
It just turns out that our menu did not seem to be the right fit for downtown Ann Arbor, Ziegler said.
The restaurant at 505 E. Liberty St. closed on Saturday less than a year after opening.
It was a business decision to get out of it before we got in trouble, Ziegler said.
Ziegler and his wife, Beth, own the Grand Traverse Pie Co. restaurant at 291 N. Zeeb Road. In May 2012, the couple opened the 3,185-square-foot restaurant in the on East Liberty Street.
Ziegler said business is strong at his Zeeb Road location, but downtown Ann Arbor diners just didnt catch on to the restaurants fast-casual menu. He said the diverse dining scene downtown creates a lot of competition for restaurant owners.
Were doing really well , he said. Out of all the Grand Traverse Pie Company locations, Zeeb is usually one or two in all categories in sales. For some reason, our menu just didnt seem to attract enough people in downtown Ann Arbor.
He added: We just appreciate the guests that we were able to serve there, and we feel bad that were not able to stay there.
Ziegler is in the process of vacating the East Liberty Street space. Representatives with landlord McKinley Inc. said there are no immediate plans to announce regarding the space.
