“This shop makes me feel like a kid in a candy shop," Nicholas McGahan wrote in a Google Review. "I love cheese, but am not well versed in cheese. The kind, helpful staff does not make me feel ignorant. In fact, they are excited to share their favorites, and help me find my own. Great selection, surprising opportunities, great pairings and welcoming atmosphere."
Mandy Jean wrote in a Facebook review that the shop helped her choose an appropriate cheese to take to snack on at a concert.
“Wonderful experience," Jean wrote. The owner (I assume that’s who helped us) offered several samples and is clearly very passionate and knowledgeable about cheese. I asked for three of his favorites to bring as a picnic to Yankee Doodle Pops tonight and he selected all American cheeses in honor of Independence Day. I asked about my new favorite wine and he pointed me towards a beautiful Cava he carries in the store that would remind me of the one I asked about. I highly recommend the Cheese Shop and will definitely be back!"
