“great food fast, but not fast food”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Excellent sandwiches, friendly and quick service, name a little misleading as they dont have lots of different cheese but they have the usual for sandwiches. Great bread and just a refreshing change

“Amazing”
Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

What a variety and very friendly staff. They help you choose if you can't make up your mind and you don't feel rushed. The place is bright, clean and perfect for a sandwich shop. Loved my Tinkerbelle sandwich and will be back.

“Still serving the BEST sandwiches around!”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

I have been enjoying the Old World Cheese Shop's sandwiches since moving to the Tampa Bay area in 1983. They have the most unique and delicious sandwiches. I highly recommend the Little John, Prince John, Tinkerbelle,and Alan-a-dale. They make half sandwiches so if you can't make up your mind you can try a couple a different halves! If you are in the Temple Terrace you MUST try this unique sandwich shop nestled in the Sherwood Forest shopping area off 56th street just north of Fowler Ave.

“Food good, decor not”
Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

I have had good food here and the people are very nice. I would just like them to spruce up the place. Remove the travel posters and give it a more "Olde World" feeling.

“Great sandwiches!”
Reviewed March 6, 2012

The Olde World Cheese Shop has been a favorite of ours for 30+ years. There used to be several around the area, including Brandon and St Petersburg (Pasadena). We make it a point to always stop here for lunch, as one of our doctors is less than a mile away.

Today I had their Mufeletta, a huge stack oif salami, ham and cheese on a heated onion roll. I also love their King Reuben sadwich.
