Welcome to The Pie Place Cafe restaurant and bakery in Grand Marais, MN, the beautiful little town on the North Shore of Lake Superior near the entrance to Minnesota’s historic Gunflint Trail.
We are a family owned restaurant, serving year round breakfast, lunch, dinner, and, of course, pies! Our menu reflects the vividly changing seasons, the rich culinary traditions that exist here, as well as spotlighting the vast array of local foods available. As you will see, maple syrup, wild rice, berries, honey and fresh fish are plentifully represented.
The Pie Place Cafe is located at The Harbor Inn, downtown on the harbor in Grand Marais, only a short ride from Lutsen mountain and ski resort, and Minnesota's Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
The restaurant atmosphere is casual and cozy, the interior taking inspiration from the natural surroundings. The phenomenal view from the expansive windows lets you take in the beauty of the harbor, with its lighthouse. In the summer, you may even enjoy a nice weather at some of our sidewalk tables.
Walls are adorned with landscape and wildlife paintings and nature photography – all created by The Pie Place crew and other local artists. For each one of us has artistic interests expressed in weaving, spinning, knitting, painting, carving, wood working, photography, which we pursue during the times we are not creating good food in the restaurant. Each Pie Place member is committed to ensuring that you experience a taste of the joy and privilege we feel to live and work in such an exquisite place.
“Definitely the best breakfast on the north shore, and my favorite place for pie on the planet.” – Andrew Zimmern, St. Paul/Minneapolis Magazine
