“Unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

What a special place this is. They make wonderful cheese and are happy to give you a tasting of whatever they offer. They also carry Tillamook (which is located right down the road). We left with wonderful smoked brie. They carry all types of gourmet food products and kitchen items. They have a nice selection of wines as well as tastings. There is a deli and an array of salads which looked just yummy. There are plenty of intriguing nooks and cranny’s where you can sit and enjoy the food. Staff was friendly and helpful. There is an outside area for kids. This is really special place to stop and enjoy good product versus the crowded goliath, Tillamook, down the road.

“Good and Varied Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

The Blue Heron isn't a restaurant in the strictest sense. They serve food and have tables scattered among the various soup mixes, jellies, James and sauces they also sell. The atmosphere isn't like a mini mart despite all the selling going on here. It feels very nice. There is cheese tasting, their good Brie, and wine tasting which was a very reasonable $5 for 5 wines. My wife and I did the wine tasting while our son snacked on the ice cream. There are also some excellent truffles for sale by the front entrance that are worth getting. You can also feed some very hungry goats you can feed. Overall it is a good stop for shopping and light eating.

“Yummy cheese, classy atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Just down the road from the Tillamook Factory is Blue Heron Cheese. There's no cheese making to see, but it has a petting zoo and places to have your pictures taken and a wealth of cheese, dips, and wine to taste. A duet was playing very nice music while we were there, and it looked like a nice place to eat lunch. Ask for tastes of cheese at the counter. It's a fun place to stop.

“I'm in Love”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

I absolutely love this place!!! I have been there several times and it gets better and better everytime I go. The selection of wines are endless, the deli menu and food is always amazing and it's a great place to go with family and friends. It's the perfect place to buy gifts and they always have a new selection of stylish clothing, I am a walking advertisement for the Blue Heron "LOVE" sweatshirts!!!!

“Great lunch spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

This place is a crazy mix of wine/cheese tasting, boutique, petting zoo and lunch counter but it works. The salads and sandwiches are really just good and the prices are excellent for a "tourist trap". Skip the cheese factory cafeteria and take the family here instead. You'll enjoy your meal and the surroundings and might find some interesting home decor, or a new apron, or a great dip...it's all there.
