Owner description: Northern Michigan is the cherry capital of the United States, and almost all of our products contain this most versatile fruit. We turn them into salsas and jams, cover them with chocolate, mix them with nuts, bake them in cookies and bread, and even use them to make soda pop and wine. The mighty cherry does it all! Even in the off-season, the Cherry Republic Grand Café in Glen Arbor is a great place to stop for a coffee, a Boomchunka, or a slice of pie. Learn more about the The Café in Glen Arbor.

Cherry Republic is a charming retail store selling everything with cherries in it (cherry jam,cherry salsa, cherry barbecue, etc.)The retail store lets you taste everything!

Another building houses an excellent winery, again wines with cherries in them. They also have their own sodas that are their own. Taste testing is a must.

Finally, they have a excellent cafe with great food. Try the cherry chicken salad or the outstanding home made ice cream. Don't miss this great retail establishment. It's a must if you're in Glen Arbor!

They have cherry everything. They let you sample most products. We haven't eaten at their restaurant. We did purchase a cherry pie to take home. It was well worth it. You can't bake a pie for what they charge when you figure your time. Make sure to purchase their products at their store and not somewhere else. It will be fresher there. It is well worth the trip.

What a fun, family friendly place to visit on our trek around Lake Michigan. Our favorite cherry product was the cherry salsa. We also shared a salad while there and even it was tasty thanks to fresh cherries. So many samples inside the store! If you're in the Traverse City area, this is a place you just have to find.

We went with large party with kids from 7-13. The grownups enjoyed the wine tasting while the kids loved, loved the soda tasting! The staff was super helpful! Everyone was sold on the cherry sangria!. Lot's of tastings, the kids focusing on sweets and the grownups on everything. We then enjoyed a leisurely lunch outside. The food was very good. My youngest whom is not much of a cherry fan, decided it was actually pretty good and made sure to have something with cherries in it everyday! Of course it was mainly candy, but we all really enjoyed it.

Cherry republic has unique twists on staple foods by adding cherry to everything! The cherry salsa comes with chips when your seated and it is phenomenal. The spicy feta dip is absolutely a must have for anyone! We returned a second night just for the feta dip! Of course, the ice cream and cherry pie are a perfect ending. The store and tasting room on site provide plenty of entertainment for families. Highly recommended.
