Love this place. Definitely the highlight of Colonial Williamsburg. The family and I all got tasty sandwiches for lunch; they were delicious and the bread was really fresh. It was crowded and busy, but the hustle and bustle was actually kind of fun. Great find!

Stopped in here for lunch on a Sunday and they were VERY busy. Despite this, we were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff. Everything is made to order and there are a lot of choices. It's a loud, lively atmosphere, i.e. FUN! Sandwiches, salads, cheeses of all types, lots of drink options and both inside and outside seating. Highly... More

I tasted the grilled cheese sandwich and it was amazing. My girlfrend choose two different types of salad, fresh and tasty. I reccomend the cheese shop for a quick... More

The Cheese Shop is a market and deli. I ordered a roast beef on rye with havarti cheese and their special sauce. It was delicious. They also offer a cheese platter for $15 which I plan to try next time. This is a perfect place to grab a few things for a romantic picnic. We ate at one of their... More

Great selection of cheese, chocolate and gourmet goodies. Little pricey, but not over the top. Found lots of tasty treats to bring home for ourselves and friends.
