Went to the cheese shop last weekend after being told we would love it. We did. I could write pages about all of the things that are great about it but will try to be brief. The meats and cheeses are second to none, the selection and quality is incredible. Even better was the staffs knowledge and helpfulness when deciding... More

A quaint shop that offers a huge selection of cheese and wine. I was able to taste test any cheese that I wanted and the worker was very helpful in giving me a cheese taste tour and ended up introducing me to a new cheese that I'm in love with! I ordered a grilled cheese sandwich to go, and to... More

We've been going to the Cheese Shop over 2 years now and we LOOVE IT. Not only do they have a miraculous assortment of delicious cheeses, but you can also find great beers, ale's , ciders and wines. I have purchased some delicious African Honey Meade on multiple occasions. Regardless of what kind of cheese you like, the courteous and... More

We stopped by for a quick dinner before seeing a play at the playhouse next door. My husband and I each had a sandwich and they were both delicious. Both were full of fresh ingredients and lots of flavor. The place was packed when we came, but we were able to grab a spot at the door. The staff was... More

Happened to be in Des Moines on business and close to this place. Parking can be a little tricky, but believe me the food is well worth it. We had gourmet grilled cheese that was truly out of this world and the tomato soup had a blend of flavors that was a treat to the taste buds. The staff was... More

A new discovery in Des Moines, and really a find for us. Everything was delicious. Loved the cheese and charcuterie appetizers portions to start. Great bacon macaroni. Fresh lemon salad was tasty and unusual…in a good way! Very friendly service. Also lots of interesting items for sale to go…house made pimento cheese spread was great. Loved the little bottles of...

Best Mac & Cheese I've ever had and I am 63 years old! DD had Pig & Fig Sandwich, also awesome! They should pair them. Limited room for diners. Only has bar stool height seating. That's why it only gets 4 stars!

Loved it. Great food, helpful staff. Next time we will have a cheese platter, but their charcuterie is well worth it. We had their blood chocolate ice cream, which was excellent. Staff were wonderful helping us navigate the different foods and drinks.

Just visited for the first time. Staff is obviously "into" quality cheeses, wine and craft beer. We were introduced to their charcuterie as well as other artisan cheeses e.g. gouda and a tasty prosciutto.Their wine selection has a lot of variety and features both "smaller" French vinyards as well as small but quality California wineries. We'll make it a regular... More
