Great cheese shop in the Runstraat, in the middle of the ’9 Straatjes’ (the nine streets) stacked from floor to ceiling with cheese wheels. They also sell wines, salads, ham, roasted nuts and takeaway sandwiches (special mention for the truffle cheese baguette). They also shrink-wrap cut cheeses to take back home.

You will find this is very different from other touristic cheese shops. It firstly drew my attention when I saw a gentleman was enjoying a cheese sandwiches in front of the shop, and when I went in, I found the place is like a cheese library and there are so many different flavours want to try. I got a piece... More

Their cheeses are so local and small-batch that some of them even have the names of the dairy farmers on the label. The staff spoke English fluently, had a very developed knowledge of and obvious passion for cheese, and gave us great recommendations. I'm seriously considering paying the 35$ to import 8 ounces of their buffalo gouda, it was that... More

If you are serious about cheese. this is the place. Helpful staff. Plenty of choices. Everything you need for a picnic. Much of the cheese is vacuum-sealed, so you can ship it back home.

This shop has an incredible array of cheeses - both domestic and imported - as well as olives, crackers and packaged meats. Prices are a bit on the high side and service could be friendlier. If you wish to charge your purchase, they add a fee to the credit card. If you are a cat lover, the second hand store... More

It is true that the Netherlands produce many different types of cheese. In order to enjoy this diversity at its best, you must go to De Kaaskamer. The place is small and full of cheese !! One thing for the ones travelling, they have chesse vacuum packed.
