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!

Even though I don't love cherries this place is huge and has everything you can imagine in cherry flavor. My favorite is the chocolate covered cherries and the sour cherries.

I loved this place!! High quality cherry foods and sampling throughout the store. We didn't eat in the cafe part, but saw a children's play structure inside the store too! Great snacks! Totally will go back next time in town!

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!
