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.

While we've never eaten here - the quality and varied selections of cheese and pate' keep bringing us back on our twice yearly trip to the area. The sandwiches that are made in-house look incredible and if the number of people purchasing them to eat-in or to-go is any indication the must be incredible. We'll have to try some on... More

I stopped in to get a sandwich, and to check out the store, because I had heard so many rave reviews from friends of ours. What a great shop! The owners and staff are super friendly. I had a Cuban Panini, and it was very tasty. I only had to wait about a minute for my sandwich, (super fast, even... More

Great selection of cheeses together with an owner who is full of information and a willingness to share her knowledge of cheeses. Enjoyed several tastings before settling down with a Cubano sandwich for lunch. Selected a local blue, a Manchego, and a New England triple creme to take back for happy hour.

Stopped in here after seeing the other reviews on TA. What a beautiful shop. Staff very friendly and helpful. Sandwiches are so delicious on fresh baked rosemary foccacia. They have a few tables inside and out if you want to stay and eat or you can take out. Nice wines, cheeses, salads and great baked goods. Of course they have... More

The cheese Iron is a great lil place if you like good cheese and meat with a little wine. Staff was awesome on recommending cheeses for our group and also let us taste the cheeses recommended. Store was set up perfect for this type of business. I wish them the best. More places need this type of specialty stores.

Another summer visit and this shop never disappoints! I absolutely love the wine & food selection and find the service to be first class. I was grilling a heavier, kid-friendly meal but wanted wine & cheese for my husband and I to enjoy and the gentleman that works there could not have been more knowledgeable and helpful. He suggested a... More
