Description: When it comes to our famous pies or our amazing breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus the secret is simple - our first ingredient is always love! We are a family-owned restaurant that has proudly served up gourmet home-cooking and a warm atmosphere on the North Shore of Lake Superior since 1996. Our bakery boasts an extensive selection of berry pies, cream pies, and specialty pies, alongside cookies and cakes and other seasonal desserts! Pies are baked daily entirely from scratch using all of the best available ingredients to ensure a flavor unlike any other. But at The Pie Place Café, we're about more than just pies! Locals and visitors alike enjoy our summer breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. We've been called the best breakfast on the North Shore and it's not hard to see why with our popular Maple Sausage Patties, omelets, and pancakes. Our lunch and supper menus feature favorites like the Black Bear Blueberry Salad and Three Meat Maple Meatloaf - hands down the best meatloaf we've ever tried! Whether you're joining us for one of our namesake pies or an unforgettable Pie Place Café dinner, we look forward to making you feel right at home.

“Yummy bumbleberry pie”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

While a bit expensive for just a piece of pie and glass of lemonade I am sure the money is in the experience of a waterfront view. Delish pie a la frozen custard.

“The Pie Place-Grand Marais”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

We ate breakfast at this restaurant in July. We didn't order anything fancy and there were only 2 of us. We watched as all the other tables around us received their food. We weren't in a hurry, so not a huge deal, just confusing. The food was average at best. View is amazing!

“Good Food, Great Pie”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Don't be fooled by the exterior, the food inside the Pie Place Cafe is very, very good. Make sure you save room for dessert and if you're there in the morning, I highly recommend the fresh scones with clotted cream.

“Memorable Lunch Here”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

I was on my own one day while on vacation in this area while my family went on a ferry to Isle Royal. We had heard about all the "Pie Places" that were historically the best on the way to Grand Marais (Betty's Pies and Rustic Pies). We ended up eating lunch at Rustic Pies which was good on the way up but this place was MUCH better!! Best Pie I have had in restaurant and I am an AVID pie fanatic and baker. I had a buttermilk lemon pie that was out of this world good. Prices were the same or a little less than rustic pies and food was better - environment cleaner, service better AND it was on the lake with a beautiful view AND right around the corner from Java Moose (one of the best coffee houses I have been too). Overall one of the nicest meals (and definitely the best pie) I ate on a two week trip. Highly recommend this for a nice lunch or meal if you are traveling in this area.

“Yup, great pie and menu options”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We loved overlooking the harbor while dining. Great menu choices. Our server was fantastic, prompt and knowledgeable. Of course we got pie, and it was delicious. Would recommend,
