Welcome to the Cherry Republic Grand Cafe and Bakery located in Glen Arbor, Michigan.

Serving a full menu of cafe specialties, Chef Chris features crispy hot-out-of-the-oven pizzas, hearty sandwiches, savory BBQ, fresh salads, and plenty of shareables to feed a crowd. After your meal, our Bakery serves up our signature homemade cherry pies, huge Boomchunka cookies, and 16 varieties of ice cream, all made with local northern Michigan cherries.

When you stop by the Grand Cafe, don't forget to stroll across the gardens to the original Great Hall, where we sample over 170 of our locally made cherry products, from chocolate covered cherries and salsas to dried fruits and BBQ sauces. Oh, and our Stomp House serves people of all ages with 24 varieties of wine and soda, so bring the entire crew.

Located in the heart of the 'Cherry Capital of the World', this is where Cherry Republic got its humble beginning, just a couple blocks from Lake Michigan in beautiful Glen Arbor.

Come visit anytime; we're open 7 days a week, all year long.
