The intoxicating aroma of pies has been known to lure rational people into lives of windowthievery, and irrational people into lives as professional pastry chefs. Today's Groupon leads you on a less harrowing path to the pie: for $9, you get $20 worth of casual fare at Grand Traverse Pie Company. Your Groupon is redeemable exclusively at the Troy outpost of the pioneering pie shop.
Grand Traverse Pie Company offers more than 25 flavors of pie baked fresh daily, from ingredients supplied primarily by Michigan vendors, and a savory selection of comforting fare for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Stock up on sustenance for a long day of street performing by breakfasting on a hearty bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich ($3.49), and add an order of the gooey caramel pecan rolls ($1.99) for a sweet, meal-accompanying treat. Mid- and late-day diners will enjoy the extensive offering of salads and cold or grilled sandwiches, or any of Grand Traverse Pie Company's warm and comforting entrees, such as the piping-hot prime-rib pot pie ($6.99) cloaked in Grand Traverse Pie Company 's famous flaky crust, or the protein-packed broccoli and cheddar quiche ($6.50), for a breakfast-inspired dinner.
The eatery boasts a dizzying display of more than 25 flavors of pie daily, served up by the slice (starting at $2.99) or available whole, which are ideal for gifting to the hostess of a backyard staging of Twelfth Night, or a decadent dessert for one. Fruity selections and apple pies (starting at $13.99), made from Northern Michigan spy apples and offered in seven varieties, will please the vitamin-deprived, while creamed creations (starting at $15.99), such as the coconut cream or butterscotch pie, are sure to delight the members of the foreign film club. Complete with free WiFi, the warm and cozy eatery makes a fine location for an afternoon of studying while nursing your pie of choice.
