    They helped us create a custom cheese board with cranberry Stilton, goat, emmentaler, and alpine cheddar. Add bread, crackers, and a bottle of wine for a great experience. Great seating outdoors.

    How to properly order: 1) pick your bread, and meat. 2) decide what dressing (house is the best) 3) look at the top right corner above the counter and pick your additions 4) enjoy

    Yes, you have to get the house dressing. My turkey on rye with house dressing, tomato, cheddar, and sprouts is one of THE best sandwiches I've ever had. Get the Chowning's Tavern Root Beer too!

    Best little sandwich shop in CW! I recommend the roast beef and cheddar with house dressing on French bread. Also check out their lovely selection of cheeses for a delicious gluten-free meal.

    They have 2 gluten free breads, a whole wheat bagel and a white bread. The bagel is very good bread but not much like a bagel, it's still delicious. The white bread is more gf traditional.

    Bread ends & House dressing is a cheap & amazing meal! I like a turkey sandwich with cheddar & house on French bread too. Can't go wrong as long as it has house dressing!!!
  • Slightly P.
    Amazing variety, and they cut it all for you on-site. Free water in the back. Their wine selection is top-notch. Nice outdoor seating. Check out that bar!

    Be prepared to wait for your meal. It's often a tourist stop. I have had consistently good sandwiches from here. Ask if they have bread ends and try dipping them in the house dressing!

    HOW TO ORDER: line up on LEFT; place order for sandwiches, soups at back counter. They will call ur name when it's ready. Browse coolers for beverages and other foods, check out at front counter.

    Not impressed with cheese selection and their failure to put any samples to try. Should be glad they're the only shop on town. Don't know why it's called the Cheese Shop.
