“Local and LOVING The Cheese Iron”
Review of The Cheese Iron

The Cheese Iron
Ranked #3 of 7 Shopping in Scarborough
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 January 2016

We live in Gorham, one town over. We are huge wine and cheese lovers (but come on - who isn't). We discovered the Cheese Iron several years ago and have been loyal followers ever since. They let you try anything in the case, which is a great business plan when we end up leaving with extra. (Which is also always the right choice) We send all our guests/visiting friends/family there as a "must do" stop while in the Portland area. I've been buying my corporate clients holiday gift bags there for a few years now. The reviews have been fantastic as well. Can't recommend it enough.

We were meandering back to Newburyport MA after spending a most excellent day in Portland ME. The Cheese Iron in Scarborough caught our attention. An amazing and wonderful shop. The staff are both delightful and full of knowledge. We bought cheeses, cured meats etc. The old man actually said we should drive up there on Friday so we can replenish..........so I signed up!

If you love cheese you must visit The Cheese Iron. What a wonderful selection of local, domestic and imported cheeses! Every accoutrement imaginable - breads, crackers, jams, pickles, mustards, etc. - is there as well. Tasting is encouraged. A carry out menu is available and the desserts looked delicious. So glad I read about this business in the Portland Press Herald food section. We plan to return.

Excellent source of cheese and party or snack items. They have their own cheese aging room and a large variety of cheese products. Their prepared platters are well done but a bit expensive. The service is also excellent.

Artisinal cheeses from New England and Europe, cut to your portion after a sample bite. Knowledgeable staff, wines, crackers and French breads, teas and coffees. Sandwiches daily, freshly baked sweets, all displayed in tempting arrangements. Owners on hand to greet you daily, Monday through Saturday. A shopping delight.
