Been driving past this place for years and have never stopped. Today we stopped and were pleasantly surprised. Great food, nice shopping with an excellent choice of cheeses and meats and you can get a beer if you like. Will definitely be back.

It's so "Wisconsin"! Cheese, beer, meats, crappy pun souvenirs! It's also a great place for a pit stop. Always clean (including restrooms). Good cafe serving a variety of foods that even whiney kids would be able to find something. Snacks for the road.

If you crave cheese, Wisconsin cheese is the best. Such a great variety, many to taste and then there is the sausage counter. Great souvenirs as well. Seemed like over 20 different selections of cheese curds. Just go!
