Great lunch!

Hot cider was delicious and went great with our sandwiches. They let sit in the adjacent restaurant since it was freezing outside. We also bought some great items for later in the day.

One of the days we were in Virginia is rained so much and we ran into The Cheese Shop to get some food to bring back to the hotel. The sandwiches are so good here! We ordered the grilled cheeses for the kids, which have a combination of all the cheeses there. My husband I snuck a bite from our... More

Good variety of basic sandwiches. Tasty. Very popular so sometimes difficult to find a seat. Convenient/walking distance to Colonial Williamsburg.

I found the store to be very well stocked with lots of condiments, sauces, gourmet food items, and of course, cheese. We got roast beef sandwiches and I was a little disappointed. They were tasty, but did not have a lot of meat in them. The focaccia bread was delicious.

When in market square ..... The Cheese Shop continues to produce good sandwich lunches in a very casual environment.

Was told to try by a W &M student friend. What a crazy setup, but everyone seems to know what theyre doing so just go with what everyone else is doing. Order in the back, wait for it, pay at front. Nice variety of sandwiches on good crusty bread. We were able to grab a not so easy to get... More

A great stop to grab a sandwich when in Williamsburg. The food is so good that my young son remembered it from 4 years ago when he was 5! Be prepared to wait, because it is always BUSY but; however, it is WELL worth it! We love the sandwiches we get here. Plus, it's cheaper than eating again at one... More

Totally love the Cheese Shop. This is a popular place to walk the people in Colonial Williamsburg. Get a great sandwich and more importantly, get a great glass of wine. If the house wine served at the cheese counter isn't to your liking go downstairs and order a glass from the wine store. There you have expert guidance about what... More
