Small, Friendly and Yummy!

We really enjoyed a lunch here. The service was fast and friendly and everything was very good. My daughters had lunch specials of soup/sandwich that were delicious and I had a french onion soup that I felt could have been more generous. Overall, it was a fun little stop-in spot.

I'm obsessed with cheese, so when I saw this place I obviously had to go in and try something. I sat at the bar and ordered a glass of Cava, which was really nice. Had the butternut squash mac & cheese with bacon and blue cheese. Tasty and not too heavy on the blue cheese. Portion size was perfect. Ended... More

Great place for a romantic evening for 2 or for friends to hang out and get a glass of wine. If you sit outside you can have your pet tied up to the outer portion of the fencing so they're close by. The Adult Mac & Cheese is so good as well as the Cheese tasting board

I absolutely love every meal I have ever had at Cheesetique. In particular, the lobster mac n cheese and the bacon n blue mac ($10) are absolutely spectacular. The dishes come in 10 ounce servings. This may sound small but was just enough given how rich and heavy the dish was. The grasshopper dessert is also delicious as well. If... More

Great little place to grab a bite. If you love cheese you will love this place. Don't miss the grilled cheese.

Ordered lobster mac and a glass of bubbly. Stopped by after a hair appt for an early dinner solo. Saddened to be underwhelmed since I had looked forward to this local haunt for so long (especially since it was listed as a top 10 Mac and cheese joint in the nation). Maybe this was a one off. Lobster mac was... More

Lovely little restaurant, choice of indoor or outdoor seating. Outside, you are street side, so you can watch the world go by. A little cramped outside, but it was a beautiful day. I ordered a Brie and pear grilled cheese with greens and it was fabulous! Accompanied by a bottle of Sauvignon blanc, some good company and friendly service, I... More

I have had some enjoyable meals here and enjoy the fact that the food is fresh and a great change of pace from the same old same old. However, I have been disappointed in the lack of customer respect at the cheese counter. A recent visit was to come in and get a pound of a specific cheese I had... More

If you are a cheese foodie, this is the place. The selection is amazing, the staff is patient and customer-focused (big on education about the different cheeses) AND you can eat on site. The cheese and wine bar offers breakfasts and lunch. We enjoyed a rustic fritatta and the ooh-la-la French toast. Both were delicious. Plus hibiscus and violet prosecco... More

Lucky to live in Del Ray and can walk to this fantastic place! Cheesetique started as a small cheese shop and expanded a few years ago to a larger space a few doors down where they added a small kitchen. Great cheese plates and charcuterie as well as the best grilled cheese sandwiches you have ever had. They have a... More
