“Nice little cheese shop”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

Located next to a Paso Robles city office, this shop has an industrial chic look. Not a huge shop, it does have twice the display of the other cheese shop in town. They also have further selections in the back. We mentioned their review on Yelp! and got the tasting tray (usually $5) for free. They give you actual cubes of cheese (about 5) instead of a shaving. There are little tables to sit at while you enjoy your cheese.

“Cheese Tasting”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

We stopped in for the cheese tasting platter. We were asked the types of chees we liked and was served a generous platter of 5 different cheeses plus meats, olives, nuts and bread. The assortment of cheese in the shop is excellent. We were able to purchase some cheese to take home and the staff packaged them in a container with ice packs. An alternative would have been to send the cheese which they specialize in doing. If you are planning to go wine tasting this option may be a wonderful addition.

“Good cheeses, but not great for tasting”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

The selection of cheeses here is excellent, but the atmosphere is not the friendliest for tasting. We already knew what we wanted, but we might have bought more if someone had offered us samples and encouraged us to try some new cheeses. Go to Di Raimondo's Italian Market a few blocks away instead if you want to explore new tastes in cheese - the very patient and friendly staff there will offer you taste after taste of any of their excellent selection of cheeses, no rush or pressure to buy.
