Do it! Just do it! This place is amazing! Fresh and local! Prices are fair! Be prepared to have to sir outside. But there are fans and it's covered. We were comfortable. I love this place and go a couple times a month.

Is it fair to review a cheese restaurant on everything but the cheese? We were a party of five on a sunny Saturday, for lunch. Seating is outside, under covered or umbrella-shaded tables. All were full as we headed inside the small storefront to order....I like that this menu is short and to the point: mostly cheese or cheese-related, with wine, sides, and a smattering of soups and sandwiches. The cheese and charcuterie boards were groaning with ample servings, but all of us opted for lighter fare. By the time we finished ordering, the perfect table opened outside. Two of us had the basil pesto/mozzarella sandwich. Mine was bewilderingly devoid of flavor. Heavy on the oil, there was no basil/garlic/peppery arugula kick, and the bacon was bland. The sandwich looked gorgeous, hence the bewilderment. The star of lunch was the tomato-basil goat cheese soup. A generous portion in an enormous white bowl. We’d all order again. Other plates - turkey sandwich and Greek salad (also enormous), were filling, but not memorable. Our wait person was friendly and accommodating, the atmosphere very nice. We will try the cheeseboards and wine next time.More

This is the quaintest restaurant ever. Although the items involve cheese on the menu it is not just cheese. There are awesome soups and sandwiches. Their chips are great. They have a good wine and beer selection although it’s small. You can also buy cheese...to take home order boards for Christmas. The owner Christie is delightful and her husband is a superb cook. The wait staff is always helpful and sweet. Although it’s an outside venue it is covered and they have heaters in the winter and fans in the summer and it’s always delightfulMore

After seeing so many posts on FB, finally made it to Mobile. We had a delicious cheese and more platter for two. Perfect with our wine. The weather was perfect for sitting outside and having a leisurely lunch. Thanks, y’all lived up to all my...expectations!More

I went last week and enjoyed it so much that I came again today with a friend. They serve chilled water out of a glass bottle; great touch. I enjoyed the caprese salad and lunch special. I will be back often!

Met friend for a quick lunch. Wanted to try a new place. Very pleased with the experience. Precious surroundings and the place was so cute. Gourmet and local items were on sale for purchase. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We sat inside which...had limited seating. The outdoor area was large and plastic walls have been put up with heaters to keeo patrons warm during chilly weather. We each ordered the tomato soup which was okay, was more in the thick and chuncky side and tasted more like a marinara sauce. I had the blueberry brie sandwich which was excellent! The food was presented quickly. Will definitely go back to try other items on the menu and perhaps even purchase some cheese items.More

Little place with big tastes! What a gem! Friends rode the bikes to this spot for lunch. I got the blueberry and Brie sandwich. I can’t begin to say how delish! Savory spread on a crunchy baguette. Plus I got a side of cranberry coleslaw....Friends got a Reuben (big enough for 2 people). Outdoor covered seating so you can enjoy the wonderful weather. Inside they have all sorts of cheese, specialty cookies and crackers and a large selection of beer and wine. Usually have a cake or two to buy a slice of it. I got the sweet potato cake and it was so moist and a little spice. Owner is so personable and the staff is genuine and and very attentive. 👍🏻👍🏻More

We had a nice lunch,. I had a Reuban sandwich which was good but not as hot in the middle as I like. My wife had a pimento cheese sandwich and loved it. We love the owner and some of the take out food looked...great. A really fantastic space and the owner is so nice! You have to try this place!More
