We visit Williamsburg each March and make The Cheese Shop our first lunch. I love their VA ham salad on rye (with alfalfa sprouts yesterday). The bread and the filling were scrumptious. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the Braunschweiger and Swiss cheese on rye. The soup...More

Love their menu, lots of fresh new ideas on classic sandwich, salads and soups. A wonderful selection of gourmet beverages, cheese, chips, tapendae’s and all kinds of goodies....don’t skip the wine cellar, you’ll regret it.

The cheese selections, and staff knowledge, are wonderful. But the Cheeses shop offers an array of sandwiches are outstanding. Don't forget to buy a jar of their house dressing. It's a spread for some sandwiches as well as salads. Their "go with" selections are numerous.

Fabulous sandwiches, incredible collection of cheeses, gourmet staples--all attached to The Fat Canary, which is definitely the best restaurant in town. All this smack dab in the middle of DOG street. What more can you ask for?

Response from Joseph M | Reviewed this property |
you can absolutely purchase a bottle of wine from the downstairs portion of the cheese shop. And you can share the bottle either inside or outside at the appropriate areas to sit down and drink or eat. i hope this helps .
