There are a handful of tables inside this bakery to which you can carry a warm, just-cut slice of pie and appreciate the absolute goodness of a pie that is individually crafted out of raw cherries or apples and sugar (never any gelatin or thickeners other than plain flour) in a crust rolled from dough made from scratch daily.

Seats inside are limited to a few casual tables, as in a coffee shop. These comfortable places to sit, good coffee and extraordinary pie add up to a virtually perfect eating experience, humble though it may be.

Everyone who walks into Grand Traverse Pie Co. becomes a pie judge, like at the state fair. The day's beauteous selection is set on display for comparison and contrast in such qualities as texture, delicacy, aroma, and eye appeal.
