Compact menu, but great food

We sat around the food prep area, and watched the staff hustling to make the orders for our lunch. We all enjoyed our food, and several of us bought cheese to-go. No coffee on the menu; a bit strange. I would definitely eat there again. Not a fast food place.

The attitude is horrible! Jacob, the CFM, was awful! Find somewhere that actually wants you there. They have an issue with customer service!

Poor customer service. Waited 45 minutes for our sandwiches. Unfriendly wait staff. Food was excellent. Prices were good.

The food we had was excellent. We were with some friends and they also thought everything we had was great. Everything tasted great.

Check out St Pete's Select blue cheese from The Cave. It is absolutely the best anywhere. We buy the precrumbled but also available in wedges. I give as hostess gifts, send it to my son's in Atlanta GA. Used to buy a competitive blue but will not go back. Try it on pizza, chicken or anything you want to add... More

Loved stopping by this place. Food good. Wish they had some sort of information of the place where you can ask staff questions instead of a muted tv screen on how the cheese is made. A guy there really didn't seem to be attentive to tourists and assisting them. Seems he was interested in serving and joking with people he... More

Definitely a must visit in Faribault. I recommend having lunch or dinner there. Everything on the menu is delicious and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Their cheese is award winning and to die for.

Nice lunch spot. A few cheese samples. The soup, salad and sandwiches were great and made right in front of us. Nice selection of wines and cheeses. If you have food allergies, it's risky. Some foods do not have labels or labels could not be found. It ended up ok for us and they were as helpful as they could... More

Warm comfortable atmosphere welcomes you on a cold MN day. Friendly informative staff is very knowledgable on the cheese and wine pairing options. The local MN wines compliment their wonderful lite meal options. Great selection of cheese for all tastes. Try home town award winner Jeff Select I predict it will be your favorite too. Don't be on a time... More
