We loved spending time loafing around this area! We had fun spitting the cherry seeds, sampling everything cherry and we loved the cherry ice cream and pie!!! Even if you don't like cherries the area is so cute!

First time here and good place. Everything has cherry in it as the name says. Salad with Cherry Hummus was good and light. Service was attentive and nice. Good place to visit.

This unique experience is more than restaurant...it is a shopping, tasting area, and culinary explosion! The meal was fantastic and dessert was even better! The outdoor seating area has a beautiful flower garden. We purchased food gifts as well. Reasonably priced also. Do not skip!

First of all, when we went to the Cherry Republic website to look at the menu, it was extremely difficult to find. We had to do numerous searches on Google to find the menu. Most of the searches gave us results for the store, not...More

Everything was cherry as you'd expect-- Our food was delicious and the deli style and patio was quick and easy. I would consider it a "must-hit" for the atmosphere and novelty!

They've crafted a beautiful corner enclave that's a must-stop destination any time we're in the area. Unbelieveable cherry-based snacks and foods including wines and ice cream. They have a little restaurant that's very good too.

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.
