    Had the California Cheese Flight. Really unique selection and server explained the selection with great detail. The place is really small making it hard to find a table. Great wine pairing too.

    Cheese with a side of wine, please! I've been enough times to know I won't be disappointed. Sophisticated joint with a low key set!

    I ordered the gruyere & salami sandwich with a nice spicy mustard & crunchy cornichons. The mac 'n cheese at the next table looked yummy. There's a charcuterie menu if you want something lighter. Read more

    I have no knowledge of cheese whatsoever. Don't be shy! Ask them about what things on the menu means, they'll gladly explain it to you if you've got the time. Remember, cheese goes well with wine/beer

    The Alotta Burrata sandwich is only available seasonally, but it's incredible, and a bang for your buck considering it's overflowing with burrata. Don't miss this.

    California Gold pressed sandwich is good, but they skimp on the ingredients inside. Ask for slightly more chevre and fig preserves; the flavors were too subtle.
