Great cheese store with plenty of different types of cheese to choose from. There are also plenty of samples for you to try. Very nice people work there and make you feel welcomed. Best part is it's on Old World 3rd Street.

Great place to stop for cheese. They had samples out but many were empty so I was unable to really try everything. If you can't find anything you like here, I don't know what to say. It's a small shop so upon seeing it at first I was disappointed, until I went inside. Fantastic!

Fun little store. All sorts of samples. Not just cheese. Sausage, gifts and baskets to make a personalized gift basket. Nice inside area where you can eat your purchases on the spot. Has restroom. Prices were reasonable. Also, very helpful chart which listed travel time for various cheeses and products. This was very helpful as we traveled from out of... More

The sheer variety of cheese available here is incredible and the samples are plentiful as well. The attached bar & restaurant bring together the best of Milwaukee - beer, brats and cheese. This is the place to get your cheese to take home if you are visiting the area.

Fantastic little cheese shop adjoined to a super cool bar. Lots of cheese to sample, which is always good in my book! The wild morel and leek jack cheese was my favorite. It is connected to the Uber Tap Room, another great find.

We visited the retail cheese shop. The staff could not have been more helpful, answering all questions with good cheer. In addition to dozens of Wisconsin cheeses, a large selection of European cheeses is available. The best feature is the sampling--many cheeses are put out in small pieces for tasting.

We stopped by to get some cheese to take with on a trip to wine areas of CA. The knowledge of the help was tremendous. They gave great suggestions and offered samples freely. Can't comment on the restaurant side of the store but if you are looking for world class cheese I would highly recommend a stop here.

Great place, friendly/helpful employees, we enjoyed a short walk by the river too! Parking can be a challenge and it will cost you either by meter or a pay lot. The visit was worth it!

Fantastic array of cheeses, and most of them you can taste. There's also an attached bar and food area if you want to try some of the cheese in a grilled format. In a neighborhood with a lot of German places if the cheese is just a pregame for some schnitzel!
