Welcome to Cherry Republic of Traverse City, a mecca built to honor the northern Michigan cherry and the Up North lifestyle. Located in the 'Cherry Capital of the World' and on one of America's Top 10 Great Streets, our diplomatic embassy is just a block from West Grand Traverse Bay in beautiful downtown Traverse City. Come in and sample over 170 of our locally-made cherry products, grab a seat in our cafe (which serves crispy pizzas, hearty sandwiches, fresh salads, and the best Cherry Pie you've ever had), or grab a glass at our wine/soda bar and sample 24 varieties of wine and soda pop. We're open 7 days a week, all year long. The Embassy is the largest storefront in the historic downtown area so we're hard to miss. It is great destination for people of all ages so we'd love to see the whole family!

I was looking for an assortment of cherry items for a gift basket I was creating, and found everything I needed at Cherry Republic! Ice cream toppings, salsa (hot and mild), mustard, candy. The recipients loved the basket of items!

The cafe at Cherry Republic did not disappoint. Our group of 9 all found something good to eat here. They have a few vegetarian options. The kids love to play in the cherry ball pit while the adults get a chance to relax!

Great place to buy salsa, jam, covered cherries and lots more. I like to buy Xmas items sending them to California as they do the shipping. It's great.

I can't visit Traverse City without at least one stop at Cherry Republic. I am in love with their various salsas, but of course, no one wants to buy food items not knowing if you are going to like it or not. Well no worries...More
