“Great Stuff!”
Reviewed February 17, 2006

I shop here often for the cheeses and imported meats (jamon serrano, primo proscuitto, salami) . The sandwiches are huge and very good. Only the best meats and cheeses are used. Try the roast beef with goat cheeses or the mixed sandwich with salami, capicolla, etc. The turkey/brie is also very good but I'm not a big turkey fan to begin with.

They also have the old fashioned Coke in a bottle that you need a bottle opener for. For some reason the Coke always tastes better in this format.

Parking can be tough so expect to walk a few blocks unless you get lucky and find a spot right outside.

“Cheese Shop is an awesome landmark”
Reviewed January 24, 2006

The sandwiches here are fabulous! HUGE and YUMMY! Get a Cheese sandwich and take a little walk to the beach and sit and enjoy Heaven on Earth.
Check out the candy you havent seen since you were a kid! The Oatmeal Molasses cookies are to die for! Also check out the really cool selection of various sodas. The AJ Stephans raspberry lime Rickey soda is very unique and so good!
