This is conveniently located right on the town plaza. You can sample free cheese samples, see cheese made, shop the delicatessen, and have lunch. They have convenient restrooms for patrons.

We've been here before to have a coffee and sandwich and this time we shopped for some cheese and wine. It's a nice combination of wine store, cafe and deli. It's not the prettiest of places for eating and drinking and there are plenty with 50 metres that are better but it does the job well enough and it's good... More

Great selection of goodies and needs. This would have been a great first stop for snacks and treats for our weekend. Lots of cheese sampling, no need to wait for someone to cut you a sample, it's already out there!

This classic cornerstone of the Sonoma Plaza is much more than a cheese factory. We have visited this deli over the years for sandwiches to take to the local wineries for a picnic lunch. Sample the many cheese offerings, peruse the gift and wine shop and smell the flavors from the outside BBQ. The cheeses are not only from this... More

My wife and I parked right in front, so we went in. From an earlier vacation, I seem to remember this place used to be called Sonoma Jack Cheese Co. Could be wrong. We sampled many cheeses, but found none interesting enough to buy. The Sandwiches looked good, and the outside grill smelled very good. That is where expectations and... More

Such a cute little deli gift shop. So many great finds and the people are so friendly. The sandwiches feature their fabulous cheeses and meats. The chicken salad is delectable!

The cheese factory really is a great deli. Sandwiches cheese and barbeque. A great change and a lot of picnic items. It was a welcome change and a great selection. We will stop again.

I love sandwiches. I am always looking for the next best. Well, I have found it. The Vintage is without question the best sandwich I have ever eaten. Crust bread, mortadella, salami, provolone, olive spread, brown mustard, mayo and mixed greens all came together in one fabulous bite after another! I'm going to pick up one for the plane ride...

Tummy sampling. A wide variety of snacks and wine. Odd selection of foreign wine. Excellent service.
