Super Pizza and fun environment

This little restaurant often has a long line in front because it's the best pizza around! (The line moves quickly). One pizza type per day and you get extra slice(s) depending on the size of pizza you order. Beer available. Try to go when they have the corn and cilantro pizza. May not sound great... read more

We have been wanting to try Cheeseboard for four years now....finally did. We were always scared away by the line out front. Today it was a little rainy and the line wasn't too long. Bought a whole "pizza of the day" and it was piping hot and delicious with a few extra small pieces thrown in :) Only problem is....I... More

Great live music (jazz, blues, soul), opens up to the sidewalk/parklet, best wine in town for the price, a convivial atmosphere and a worker owned and run collective.

This is more of a take-out place than a restaurant though there are a few tables on the sidewalk. You can buy a whole pizza to take home or a single slice. There can be a line out the door but it's not prohibitively long. I love their pizza - interesting combinations of cheeses and vegetables that change and there... More

Delicious pizza - offer only one choice a day. Wished they would offer a vegetarian and non vegetarian choice. Make sure you eat it there so it's hot and fresh.

Another successful trip to the Cheeseboard. The line out the door, from the moment they open at 4:30 PM until they close at 8pm, tells you everything you need to know. Great for takeout (or dining in, if you're willing to jockey for a table). I always enjoy the live music, especially Kicking the Mule. Pizza is delicious and their... More

If there's anyone who's dissatisfied with the quality or service at the Cheeseboard, I haven't met them yet. The selection is still outstanding, and the attitude of the workers, exceptional. Where else can you try cheese after cheese? Of ask advice about the rinds of two different cheeses and get a knowledgeable answer? If you love cheese - or pizza... More

Had a late lunch at the highly regarded Cheeseboard Pizza. Today was Crimini mushroom...only one choice each day. Folks lined up down the block to get some. Delicious sourdough crust. Lots of cheese! Yummy!

Everything about how cheeseboard is run is amazing. The coop style is something I love to support, and the efficiency with which they serve the one type of pizza every day is pretty amazing. However, after multiple trips there, I feel the pizza is far too greasy/oily for my taste. The combinations are exquisite but I often cannot enjoy them... More

The pizza is great. Lines are long and seating limited so lots of people actually sit out on the meridian. What I like most about the Cheeseboard is the excellent live music. Some great blues and jazz.
