“Never has cheese been so fun!”
Review of The Cheese Shop

The Cheese Shop
Ranked #1 of 83 Shopping in Carmel

First off, Blake was the funniest, most enjoyable clerk I have experienced in a long time. I wouldn't call him a clerk really, maybe a cheese guru / comedian! A cute little shop, filled with wine & cheese and more cheese. They let you try pretty much anything, which was awesome. We left with a selection of cheeses and a bottle of champagne to enjoy during a Big Sur sunset!

This is the most interesting and fun shop in Carmel! As soon as you walk in to the narrow shop you're greeted by young cheese & wine enthusiasts who want to fill you up on samples of cheeses along with origins and history. Everyone is friendly and upbeat, and the selection is amazing. If you are fortunate enough to talk with the owner (great guy), get ready to laugh and sample some of the best wines the enveloping mountain ranges have to offer!

We stumbled across this little treat as a result of a flyer in the Carmel Tourist Information Center. It was a terrific place to find some excellent cheese to go with our Napa wines while enjoying the ocean view from our hotel room. The selection is mind boggling, but more importantly so is the staff knowledge! They obviously love cheese and take the time and consideration to pair the cheese with whatever food or wine you may have in mind. Take the time to stop by for a pleasant surprise!

I could spend a week in here. Just the smell alone is maddening, I want it ALL!! :) The owner is so engaging that he could double as an entertainer. The other folks that work here are friendly and knowledgeable as well. If you're in Carmel and you like cheese DON'T miss this place!! I think I'll be joining the "Cheese of the Month Club" really soon. I Love this place.

'Oh!! And there is Wine to go with your cheese!

This place will knock your socks off. Amazing, amazing service. You walk in and no more than 10 seconds later you are eating cheese. Then more cheese..and then some more again. At one point you are full and you need to stop but ...just.....one.....more!

If I was local this is the kind of place i'd frequent very, very often.
