Introduction

Founded in 1996, this Traverse City, Michigan, bakery prides itself on making pies the old-fashioned way—by handcrafting premium ingredients, including fresh local fruit, into exquisite (and notably substantial) pies that are slowly cooked to crisp-crumble-topped perfection.

About The Food

Grand Traverse makes irresistible pies that beg to be ordered again and again. Made from premium ingredients primarily sourced from trusted local farmers and vendors, each is handmade and slowly cooked to ensure it’s one of the best you’ve ever had. From their famed cherry pies—the Grand Traverse Cherry Crumb Pie (deemed “a religious experience” by famed chef Mario Batali) and the Old Mission Cherry Pie (an Oprah Favorite)—to their Northpoint pumpkin pie heralded by Country Living magazine, Grand Traverse pies are more than dessert. They are an experience.

Owners
Meet The Owner

After an unexpectedly influential experience visiting a local pie shop in the mid-1990s and subsequent ongoing training from the pie shop owner, Mike and Denise Busley left their corporate careers, packed up their two young kids, and left San Diego to pursue their dream or starting their own pie business. Today the Busleys have 14 regional pie shops that focus on fresh local ingredients and truly unbeatable pies and spend much of their free time giving back to the community.

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.
