“My Favorite Coffee Shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

This has been my favorite coffee shop for years and is a required stop immediately after entering State College. Bill roasts all of the coffee himself and can often be seen roasting every weekday morning. The self service for coffee is great. I get tired of waiting at other coffee shops for people with complicated orders, but here, I just choose what coffee I want and make my own change on the counter. It started as a cheese and gourmet food shop and still offers many quality cheeses, but coffee has become the main business.

“Great Coffee!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2010

While cheese is sold, more patron this shop for the coffee. The owners and employees are really nice and helpful. Do not be shy about interrupting any prolonged conversations between employees and customers. Small place but lots of great food/drinks!

“Love the Cheese Shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2010

The Cheese Shop is a treasure in the State College community....there are many specialty items that are great...they have a good assortment of cheeses, European chocolate, coffees, etc. If you have the time, definitly plan to sip your beverage there and enjoy the company. I've been there many occasions and always had a wonderful experience.

“They call themselves the cheese shop, but the focus is on coffee”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2009

That said, I've never tried their coffee, but have been here many times to buy cheese. I find that the service is horrible if you're just trying to buy something. It's probably great if you want to stand around and talk to the cashier about coffee all day. Also, I usually seem to know a lot more about the cheese I'm buying than the clueless cashier does.
