Conveniently located on Route 1, The Cheese Iron is a surprising little gourmet shop with a helpful and knowledgeable staff. Stop in on your way to the beach house for an education on the artisanal cheeses of New England (and the world), with liberal samples to guide your purchase. Love blue? Try the Spanish Valdeon..my personal favorite! They also carry a nice selection of moderately priced wines, as well as interesting pates, crackers, condiments, and such. If you find yourself caught in a time crunch and in need of hors d'oeuvres for a dinner party, call or stop in and let them put together a sampler plate for you...I've always found their plates to be creative, tasty, and compliment worthy.
