The Mac & Cheese is all they say it is

Ok, while it's not as good as my wife's this mac & cheese was delicious. If you get the mac & cheese you must have the garlic bread with it. It's awesome if you like garlic & herbs. It's also very cool that you can watch them making cheese even from outside on the sidewalk.

Beecher's is a must! The grilled cheese sandwich and the mac and cheese are what cheese dreams are made of. There is always a line, but they are efficient and in no time you will be experiencing the best grilled cheese you have ever tasted. I would say this place is reason enough to visit Seattle.

Beecher's grilled cheese sandwich was the best i've had. We didn't try the mac and cheese but plenty of people near us tried it and said it was excellent.

You can't miss it when visiting this popular market destination. The selection of cheeses is impressive and tasting great fun. This is a very popular place to be by the number of people eating mac and cheese! So worth it

We were introduced to Beecher's during a Savor Seattle Food Tour. We sampled their mac and cheese and two types of aged cheese, ALL were amazing! Luckily, they also have a shop in the SEA-TAC Airport in Concourse C (just off the main terminal) so we picked some up before our flight home.

When I visited they were not busy, but they were set up for crowds, with preparations for lines starting out the door. They offered samples of their cheeses, and their cheese curds were out of this world! Had to take some home and they alone were worth going back to Seattle for.

The mac & cheese at Beechers is phenomenal! It's soooo rich, creamy, delicious and done to perfection. It's not cheap (about $12 for a pint) but worth every penny. It's definitely the best mac & cheese I've ever eaten. The grilled cheese sandwiches were good but I wasn't "wow'd" - not to say they weren't scrumptious but the mac &... More
