Easy as Pie - Grand Traverse Pie Co.

On any given Saturday, or in this case Sunday, you can find me and my husband tooling around Ann Arbor, MI. While it’s not too far away, it’s just far enough to give us that get the heck out of dodge feeling. 

Each time we visit, we look for new spots to explore – the most important place, of course, is where to have lunch. In a city known as a culinary epicenter, finding something fresh and interesting is as easy as pie.

Our 45 minute drive north gives me the opportunity to peruse through my handy Ann Arbor and vicinity visitor’s guide to investigate our final dining destination. 

This week’s find was the Grand Traverse Pie Company, which has 15 locations throughout Michigan including: Traverse City, Petoskey, Lansing, Grand Rapids, and lucky for us, Ann Arbor.

Pie is their specialty, and special they are, all created from fruits grown in Michigan. 

The usual flavors looked lovely, but it was the combo pies that looked the most delightful – strawberry rhubarb; cherry peach; and the ABC pie or apple, blueberry and cherry. 

Most are available with a traditional pie crust or with a buttery crumb topping. 

And then there were the fruit bars…

Oh wait, we did go there for lunch. 

The selection of quiche, pot pies, sandwiches and salads looked almost as scrumptious as the pies, almost... 

Have a great day!
