This is THE best place in the twin cities to get different types of cheeses. Their prepared foods are beautiful. If you want a excellent sandwich get their original ficelle (proscuito.) I crave it. Staff is knowledgeable especially the cheese counter. Also fun selection of chocolates and crackers.

I was so thrilled to find that they carry my new favorite, Schilling Cider. Can't get it in Colorado yet. Staff is very knowledgeable, cheese is so tasty.

My rating would have been a five but I must give a two. When my business travels bring me to Minneapolis I look forward to my visits to Surdyk's, I really appreciate the vast selection of wine and high-end cheeses in the cheese shop, however this recently changed. This young man was so arrogant toward me. I came to purchase... More

If you are a turophile (I looked it up), I promise you will love this place. If you're like us, and don't know much about cheese, but know what you like and are willing to occasionally splurge for it, well...welcome to Surdyk's. Great selection of cheeses, including hard-to-find aged, crumbly English cheddar and soft, delicious Spanish blues. You'll also find... More

We bought some cheeses and crackers for a short road trip, and it was our best purchase of the trip! Great selection and friendly helpful staff.

I was there during an annual wine tasting event. It was a spectacular event and I left with a carload of wine. The service is great. The prices are great. Surdyk's is great.

Stopped in on a Friday night after reading reviews. Place was packed and the parking lot was a bit of a nightmare. I can’t imagine what it’s like on holidays. Lovely gourmet cheeses and goods. Wine selection was a bit overwhelming for me. We ended up skipping on liquor and purchasing cheese and crackers. We’ll be back and might have... More
