The fella behind the bar was very kind during our wine tasting. He offered lots of interesting facts and conversation. The wine was excellent as well as the cherry sodas. I enjoyed popping in here and I look forward to randomly purchasing items online to have them shipped to my home as well.

We enjoyed a yummy dessert of ice cream at Cherry Republic. My Circus Fun (cotton candy with sprinkles) and my wife's Cherry sorbet were super! Lots of great gift ideas here too for the cherry lover in everyone!

What a charmingly delightful place located in the heart of town in Traverse City. When visiting the "Cherry Capital of the World" this is one place you should not miss.

Wow they have expanded and added a little restaurant since my last visit - smelled wonderful but didn't partake in the food. A great variety of local cherry products for yourself or those on your gift list. Lots of samples so you are sure to discover your favorites. A nice wine tasting bar with selections including a hard cider for... More

This is everything cherry. Wine tasting is available along with an abundance of good cherry salsa, jam and BBQ sauces. Sandwiches in the back are definitely a must. You can order up a favorite glass of wine to enjoy with your food.

I certainly appreciate the samples, since I try something new every time. And I always buy something. It has to last a year or two until I visit again. The store is laid out to encourage browsing and sampling. Be aware they do take time and care when doing up gift boxes, so you might get a line up at... More

One of my favorite local spots to go to get gifts for family and friends. Even if you are not big on cherries (like me) they still have great items that don't even resemble cherries. I would highly recommend, however, keep in mind that it is a little pricey.

Great place for the person who loves everything cherry! The samples are plentiful and tasty and the prices are pretty reasonable considering it's a tourist location.
