If you like cheese, this is a must visit. The place is tiny small, but they have a wonderful selection of incredible tasting cheeses and spreads. It is very pricy so bring your wallet, but almost everything can be tasted and is made in house....More

The shop is tiny and with more than six people, it's definitely snug. But that's okay: who doesn't want to make a new friend over a sample of fantastic cheese. The staff know absolutely everything about their stock, whether it originates in its cave ageing...More

Really loved the cheese options this place brings - everything was tasty with tons of flavours and different textures. The architecture is interesting, with a high LEED rating driving a lot of design choices. The annoying thing here was the size of the shop -...More

The cheese here was very good. There was plenty out for sampling, including jams and cheese spreads. The signs outside the store explaining the cheese making process was cool, especially that they are environmentally conscious. The problem was the signs were faded and difficult to...More

We visited Fifth Town Artisan Cheese the first week of August! Although, I am not a fan of goat cheese; my husband loves it! We bought some goat cheese and my husband discovered the buffalo cheese that he just adored! Nice staff and great tasting...More

Brilliant! Fantastic award-winning cheese. Very chill location. Staff who know their stuff. To all the whiners who complain about anything and everything... you take yourself way too seriously. The grocery store cheddar is in the dairy section. Enjoy.
