Stopped here for lunch when we took the St. Charles Streetcar to Uptown. The food was fresh and flavorful. The Strawberry Goat Cheese salad was delicious, as were our sandwiches (mini moo, ham and brie, and Gruyere with caramelized onions). Would definitely comes again. Great selection of beer and wine.

Cheese plate with wine pairing was great, and so was muffuletta sandwich. Only thing I would complain about is the slow service. Right next to Creole Creamery- stop there for dessert! If you are taking the street car to either place, get off on Roberts Street and walk a couple blocks. Not far at all.

This place is amazing - the food is so good and the cheese selection is out of this world. I can't wait to come back again.

Great lunch!! Nice menu highlighting different cheeses-something for everyone. St. James Cheese Co. looks more like a cheese shop that happens to have tables around. Clean and bright with nice service. We went in at lunch time. There was a line to order, but it was a very short wait. Just enough time to decide what we wanted. There was... More

St. James has many different sandwiches that come with a side salad or chips. They have a large selection of cheese to buy and have great charcuterie boards. There is a nice happy hour special for charcuterie boards that is nice afternoon treat with a friend. They also have Mac n cheese and plain grilled cheese for children. It is... More

Great location on Prytania, in the busy area. Outside seating on the patios gets crowded but we were just grabbing food to go. We got a Brie De Meaux sandwich and a Smokey blue and split them between us. The Brie was amazing. We found the Blue Cheese on the smokey blue to be a little too potent but still... More

The perfect place for a salad or sandwich. Fresh cheeses and meats. All good made to order. Yummy breads. Order at the counter and they bring you your meal. Sit inside or outside. Relax it takes a while to get your food and it's worth the wait.

This was one of my family's favorite eateries in New Orleans. If you are a cheese lover, you must stop by the St. James Cheese Company. I have had some delicious cheese in France, Italy, and California but this place serves cheese right up there with the best! Really cool atmosphere, nice servers at the counter, super fresh and large... More

Great selection of cheeses, meats, and condiments for your cheese tray. So helpful and you can try samples before purchasing. They even held our purchase so we could pick up near the end of the day. We didn't eat here, but wish we had after seeing the dishes coming out of the kitchen! We will be back!

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighbourhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
