Founded in the late 60’s, Crane's Pie Pantry Restaurant and Bakery is still a unique environment, one where happy regulars and delighted first time patrons love to stop in and muse over the menus. It just might be the pie choices that first catch their attention. All year round, pies are baked every morning, to be bought fresh—try a warm slice!—or select frozen desserts to take home and enjoy whenever guests pop in.

And who knew fabulous Michigan fruit pies would become the hottest alternative to wedding cakes? With the elegant rustic appeal, Crane's wedding pies are quickly becoming a Michigan favorite to serve to guests. There are 13 different fruit pies and crisps, made with the finest harvests of Michigan's orchards to surprise and delight guests with a truly memorable treat.

Crane's also creates homemade and handcrafted sandwiches and soups. Try the popular Turkey Apple Panini made with juicy Honeycrisp apples and deli turkey. Or try the blast from the past that endures: the Sloppy Joe on a homemade bun, so good it's still one of the best sellers. “Our sandwiches are so good because they're homemade and fresh,” says Hagger.
