“Domestic Brie”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

The Brie with truffles is fabulous and a great value. Get a piece of cheese from their great big display case and some bread and head over to the pond for a great picnic spot. It's a great way to enjoy the sunshine in late summer. When you finish it's easy to try a new flavor by buying a couple of 4oz pieces.

“A Great Stop”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

The Cheese Shop was a great break in a day of driving up Napa Valley. After a very short stop at the Coppola Winery, we headed to Petaluma and followed the directions to the Marin French Cheese Company. We got fruit, crackers and cheese for a picnic by the pond. Then we bought cheese for our hosts and our house sitters and friends. It keeps well for a few days without refrigeration and it is a really nice gift. There are other foods and even hand-scooped ice cream in cones. Took the scenic road back to the 101 and headed for the Point Reyes lighthouse.

“Not a "Cheesey" Establishment”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

If you enjoy world-class brie, camembert, schloss, or breakfast cheese, you don't need to travel to Europe to enjoy them. Just take a ride out D Street in Petaluma, which becomes the Petaluma-Point Reyes Road; it's about half-way on that road southwest.

If you'd like to picnic there, they have a lovely lake and picnic tables, and they sell bread, crackers, drinks, and so on. So, go, enjoy!

“Best Brie Ever”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

The triple cream brie is the best. It practically melts in your mouth. We took it to the beach and had brie on crackers with tomatoes for lunch. Yum!
