Lots of lovely cheeses to go with our wine

Very helpful and obliging staff, offered lots of tastings and advice. Try the clementine oranges with a brie!

Blessed cheese is a real gem in the heart of Mclaren Vale! They offer an extensive range of cheeses that is accompanied with exceptional service. When we purchase cheeses, we are always given info on the tasting notes and what wines to match with each cheese. I like how you can taste the cheeses before you buy them! A real... More

We went for breakfast around 8am and it took ages to order. It was not that they were that busy but it just took ages. The food was nice but the last plates arrived so much later after the first that people had to start eating otherwise it would have been cold. Nice but I would try somewhere else next... More

We arrived at 10.35am, ordered 3 cheese and wine tasting hampers and were asked if we would like to order a coffee whilst we wait for them to make up the hampers. No problems....45 minutes later I ask when the hampers are likely to be ready and the man who took the order is still taking coffee orders and hasn't... More

Decided to give this place a second chance after an unimpressive first visit, but I'm afraid we won't be back. The wait for food was unbelievable, with no priority given to the time you enter the place, it was just random, with people who hadn't been there long being served their orders before people who seemed to have been waiting...

Been frequenting this place over the years, but unfortunately, this place has now lost its charm.., food is now average, coffee variable... The most striking difference is the service and vibe. The strong point of this place in the past was the great service by staff who seemed happy to be there, and enjoy their job. Now, only a couple... More

We stopped in to grab some cheese for a platter and we were rewarded with exceptional service, The lady that served us knew her cheese, but the amazing thing is that she asked us what wine we were having with the cheese and she knew exactly what to have with it, and she was right. I could have walked away... More

Great coffee. Great food. Fantastic range and knowledge of cheeses. We went for breakfast feed and every meal was a good serving of tasty local produce. The coffee did not disappoint either. After breakfast we checked out the cheese selection and ended up with quite a variety of local cheeses after some guidance from the very knowledgable staff. I would... More

We stopped here later in the afternoon near closing time. The staff were only too happy to warm us up some goat's cheese and out together a platter to our liking. They also recommended a glass of wine each. The olives were amazing. Really enjoyed our short stop here. Nothing was a problem and the staff so accommodating.

Thanks for your review Guys, We were more than happy to warm up the Woodside Capricorn for you, and what better complement than some local olives seasoned with rosemary and fennel. Warm regards, The team at Blessed More
