Definitely worth visiting
Apr 2021
This was my first visit after coming to St Martin many times. The store hosted a wine and cheese tasting event at our resort ( which was wonderful) and from there I wanted to visit the store. Could not find the store hours online, so I sent an email, not expecting to hear back in time before we took our chances that they were open...but... I got a reply back very quickly.
When we arrived, they were so helpful with lots of suggestions for types of cheeses, and recommendations for transporting it back to the US. I thought the inventory was excellent of other things besides cheeses, such as a very good wine selection.
We already have plans for returning to the island and “ this little gem” will be on our list to visit again. I wish the business much success!

great staff and selection
Mar 2021
The shop offered a cheese tasting at our resort explaining the aging of Gouda, all delicious. We couldn't wait to go the shop to see what else they had to offer. Oh course we came home with a wonderful selection of cheese. I even bought pasta on the way so I can try to black lemon Gouda I purchased!

Best place in Phillipsburg
Nov 2020 • Couples
Visited several times during our stay in Phillipsburg. We bought earrings and hung out at the bar several nights. What makes this place special is the people. Always greeted us with a warm welcome and walked us home at night. These are people you can trust. Arun is awesome as well as Hersh an Shaam. These guys will take care of you. Generous, humble, and kind. We’ll be back!!

Great place to stop if you love cheese!
Sep 2019
This shop has the most delicious cheese I’ve ever eaten in my life! I came to this site trying to see if I could order more to be shipped to me at home in California. I brought home a few of their cheeses and all were amazingly good.

Excellent Selection
Feb 2020 • Couples
An excellent selection of fine cheeses. We made a stop here during our Trolly Train tour. Great ice cream as well. Be careful not to buy more than you can carry off of the ship if you are on a cruise.

Must visit shop
Jan 2020
We have been to St Maarten several times and every time the first place we head for once we get off the cruise ship is this store. Love the cheese selection and always buy two wedges of Old Amsterdam cheese (as Canadians that is all we are allowed), It is the best! We last visited in January and got our two wedges and this time a super recipe for Amsterdam Mac and Cheese using the Old Amsterdam cheese. Yum! There are lots of littel souvenirs as well as the cheese and liquor. Super little store! See you next time!

Cheese shop
Nov 2019 • Friends
This was our best stop on the island. Not only did we learn about the cheeses, we got to make a wonderful dish of macaroni and cheese using 3 cheeses, including the pesto. At first it seemed strange to eat green cheese, but it was wonderful! The people were very friendly and helpful.

Brief Stop on Trolly Train Tour
Feb 2020
This shop is just a block from the cruise ship pier. The trolly train stopped for about 10 minutes. A thin cheese sample was given out upon entering. Couldn’t pass up the wonderful Dutch almond cookies, still warm from the oven, that were available for purchase - 3 for $5. No one on the tour purchased cheese, however. Interesting store but wouldn’t make it a destination, especially with concerns of getting the cheese back through customs and security.

Hi Betsy, glad you found our store to be interesting. We are the only Dutch store on St. Maarten, and also the only cheese store on the island. The concerns (some) people have about bringing cheese through customs and security are not justified; You are actually allowed 20lbs of cheese through US customs! Main rule, keep the cheese sealed. And the cheeses we carry can last a week and even up to 6 weeks in air-conditioning, so it travels just fine. Hope you stop in next time and try more of our cheeses!
