I really enjoyed my stop here. I tried several wine samples! Even as a dry red wine drinker, I found something I loved. They had different varieties of dried cherries and chocolate covered cherries as well.

Good food overall. We had some ice cream - 1 scoop $3.75 - it was OK. Chocolate covered cherries are very good. Bought the amaretto chocolate covered cherries - Excellent but about $20/lb. Great jams. Loved the Cherry Lemon soda pop.

Big store with lots of great cherry products, some of which are used in their cafe. Had a terrific Cuban sandwich with their cherry sodas out of the fountain and my stomach loved every minute.
