    Great cheeses! Mt Tam is one of my favorites cheeses ever. Grab a to go platter for a picnic at Cupid's Bow!

    This used to be a charming cheese shop, but now the cheese is pre-cut and you don't get to taste. You may as well go to Whole Foods, which is cheaper.

    Cheese heaven!! All sorts of kinds of cheese. Little bites to try if your not sure. A great staff to answer any questions. They have crackers to pair it with. Fun platters. It's located in the mall

    Good cheeses but the attitude has become a real issue here. They don't cut any cheeses anymore for instance.

    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!

    There's a monthly beer-and-cheese pairing they do here that's pretty lovely if I do say so myself.

    MT TAM is my favoirte cheese. Whenever I drink wine, I need MT TAM! I thought it was something like Brie for the first time, but it's much more creamy and sweeter. Delicious!

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

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

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