This little cheese stop is just a few minutes by foot outside of Sonoma's main square but well worth a stop (and far more inviting, despite its smaller size, than the cheese shop in the square). The ladies who were running the counter were very laid back and eager to help us select some cheeses for gifts - we had several samples, all were delicious. The cheese travels well at room temp, and lasts quite a long time refrigerated. You can even choose your own to create a personalized gift box. Don't miss it!

Very small place. Friendly staff and great cheese and crackers. We got the Mezzo Secco Monterey Jack, which is dry enough for grating but soft enough for slicing. Travels well, still enjoying.

Loved the informal nature of shop and helpful waitstaff. AND great cheese. It is housed in an historic old building and convenient to the Plaza.

The clerk at our inn told us about this place as she saw us unloading our cheeses from Whole Foods. So we headed there the next day. Great variety of cheeses all very fresh and reasonably priced. Love them and some of them are vacuum sealed and didn't require refrigeration so we were able to pack then and bring them home as souvenirs. Wine and cheese went over big upon our return home. We intend to order more cheese online and have it shipped to us at home, Hopefully it wull arrive with our wine club selections.
