About
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 200 of our locally-made cherry products, grab a seat in our Grand 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!

You like cherries? This is your place! Everything cherry you can eat or drink is here from dried cherries to candy to wine. I mean everything! I give it the five stars because of all the samples out to try. You can eat your way into a cherry coma if you want. It is a great place to spend a bit of time, pick up some cherry “stuff” for yourself and for friends. Traverse City is the Cherry Capital of Michigan after all.

Just be aware that most of the items are sort of on the “pricy” side, but they taste so very good.

Stopped in while on vacation. I love anything cherry. They had samples, which was nice to try before buying. We did a tasting and I loved almost everything. Especially the Cherry Adore wine. All of the cherry wines were delicious and we bought several bottles. Our friends have even ordered a case of Cherry Adore because we got them hooked on it. I highly recommend this store!

My wife and I stopped in while on vacation and did the wine tasting and absolutely loved it. We tasted some amazing wines and got to keep the glasses as a souvenir. We also ended up leaving with 6 bottles of wine. They even have a soda tasting for kids. My wife absolutely loves their cherry root beer. I highly recommend stopping by.

This place is a cherry lover's dream. Everything from cherry almond butter to cherry wine is available here. We got some cherry BBQ sauce and cherry infused maple syrup. Nice and spacious area, too.

Really enjoyed our visit to this store. The store is large and you can easily navigate around it. They have many different products and gadgets for you to purchase. Cherry everything. We purchased a number of items for ourselves as well as family and neighbors. Anyone visiting TC must stop here.

We arrived at 6 ti have sandwiches and were told they were not available. Then went back after dinner and they had closed the bar for wine tasting at 6 as well as cherry dessert tasting. Even though the store was open until 9. Very dis appointing !

Yes, this is the ideal tourist store, but what better treats should you try than cherry everything? The chocolate covered cherries are good, and the cherry chocolate pretzels are surprisingly good. It's fun to look around. Mask up and wait if they are at capacity, appreciated the covid considerations. Wait didn't feel long at all.

Bought a pie on Saturday, cut into the pie on Sunday and there was so much mold in the pie we threw it out. I would think that a pie would last more than 24 hours. We emailed the company and they don't even respond to their customers.

They are limiting the number of customers inside so there is a line to get in but that keeps it from being crowded. Pretty expensive but you know it's going to be good. Nice gift items.
