I love this place! I hosted a large party in their back room (beer tasting for coed party before our vow renewal, they offer wine tasting as well) and it was amazing! When I need to grab a quick bit to eat (way better then fast food and great prices) this is my place of choice, great salads, sandwiches, soup,... More

This seemed like an oasis of gold collar food culture in a blue collar town. Love the atmosphere and obviously selection of cheeses and free samples. They have a good selection of wines although I do not drink. Love their Mac and cheese dish, but takes awhile to make. In other words, since it's all home made food don't expect... More

Travelling from the Twin Cities, we stopped to enjoy a scrumptious meal at The Cheese Cave. We had a marvelous grilled cheese sandwich made from two different kinds of Gouda cheese and German Artisan bread. My husband went on record saying it was the best grilled cheese sandwich he had ever eaten! We also enjoyed the tasty Italian Wedding soup.... More

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

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.
