    Cherry Republic Grand Cafe: Cherries

    by PinkFloydActuary Updated Oct 7, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're not bringing a picnic lunch to the park, you might consider a stop at this place in Glen Arbor. It's about a 15 minute drive from the Dune climb. The cafe is nestled in the center of the Cherry Republic complex. After doing any shopping (and sampling) head over here for lunch.

    As you might imagine, cherries work their way into most of the meal choices. For starters, I had a cherry iced tea and the kids went with cherry lemonades. For lunch, hot dogs for the kids, I took a Chicken salad sandwich, which had dried cherries as one of the ingredients, and came on a cherry bread.

    Let's be frank, for what you get, the price is a little on the steep side. The three meals with drinks cost over $25. But the food is decent, and the surroundings are nice - we were able to enjoy a nice day and sit outside. Inside seating is available as well. The lunches come fairly quickly, so you won't have to kill a lot of time before heading back out to the dunes.

    Art's Tavern: There's Always Something Good to Eat At Art's

    by ciaobellamici Updated Oct 23, 2008

    Art's has a special place in almost everyone's heart who's been there. It's a great end-of-the- day on the beach, grab-a-bite place; cold weather hangout and all around fun atmosphere kind of joint that has no pretentions.

    Favorite Dish: Chicken Jalepenio Soup on Wednesday's only. Yum! People I am with enjoy a good burger.
    Everything is good at Art's.

    We entered the park area at Empire, Michigan. At this small village, there was a restaurant and a general store with a deli. Since we were travelling with our dog, we decided to pick up some deli sandwiches and picnic in the park. Fun, tasty, cheap. And the view was good.
