Overview

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!

If you love cherries then this is your place to visit. They offer samples of all their food products. The prices are a bit high but the quality and favor are worth it. This is a great stop for any group.

Employees are always friendly, samples are always great. Brought my teenage brother to check it out and he has found a new love for the cherry cola and cherry sours.

Thank you for the public bathrooms. It’s hard to find a place downtown that actually lets you use a restroom. This place was friendly in every way. We got a sweatshirt there and some of the food. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars...More

We tried a pizza and pops... everything was great! Our baby (9 months) loved it too... will definitely take her back to play on the tree play place when she’s bigger!

Filled with lots of food items, mostly made from Cherries. This store is fun to visit and offers lots of free tastings in candy, foods and wines. It is always a must stop when I am in the area.
