We enjoyed a snack at the Blessed Cheese and it was a great spot for a midday meal or light lunch. A buzzing, friendly eatery. It also sells little knick knacks for the kitchen.

Didn't find the service that exceptional either, can be improved a more personalised approach - like recommending popular choices etc. Place was nice and simple. We got a... More

I love cheese so this was my kind of place. I bought a SA Blue and it was delicious. A great little shop!

We dropped in here for lunch on a Saturday and didn't want much. So we ordered the cheese platter between us, with 3 types of cheese plus apricots/nuts. Luckily we didn't take the waitresses advice and order 1 each, as we could not have eaten a whole 3 serves of cheese each. Coffee was OK. Seemed very popular for individuals... More

We stopped here for lunch after visiting some vineyards in the area. It was a cool autumn day. At first we thought of eating at one of the outdoor tables but my wife soon decided that it would be too cool (she feels the cold) and so we moved inside. The best part of the cafe was the warm welcoming... More

Breakfast is always delicious and great menu choices. Good for a light lunch with a ploughmans plate. Can also take some goodies home with you.

I cam here with my wife. I had the potato rosti with salmon and avo and she had the cauliflower / Quinoa salad. Both were excellent. Highly recommend. Nice little shop as well. Right on the Main Street.

We visited Blessed Cheese following the great reviews read on Tripadvisor. We were warmly greeted, had a great meal and an acceptable coffee. What amazed us was their archaic attitude to a credit card. I believe their fee was 1.4% which seemed high. Is this what their bank charges? Anyway, 4 meals, coffees and selected cheeses topped well over $100... More

The food here was not great and the serving staff not very friendly. All three of us tried something different. The turkey sandwich contained very little turkey, the feta cheese in the sandwich was incredibly salty. In contrast the potato, leek and bacon soup was so bland it tasted like nothing in particular. The coffee wasn't hot. All in all... More
