    Eat your cheese before flying home or give yourself an extra 20 mins at security. Airport security scanners think cheese looks like plastic explosives.

    Super helpful and friendly staff. They sell ice packs for a dollar and I was easily able to keep the cheese cold on my trip home in my check in. Highly recommend if you love cheese!

    If it's warmer cheesiness you're looking for, try Cowgirl's Sidekick Cafe—also in the Ferry Building—where the crew melts their offerings into mac & cheese, grilled cheeses and naan flatbread melts. Read more

    Ask them for the stinkiest cheese they have - and they will not disappoint. I recommend the Red Hawk - amazingly stinktastic and delish.

    The Wagon Wheel and Gruyere cheese is the perfect combination for a delicious grilled cheese! The flavor combination of the two cheeses go together perfectly.

    Ask to try the Mt Tam or Humboldt Fog. If those seem to scary, go with an aged gouda -- always a crowd pleaser!
