“Fun to watch and oh, the cheese!”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

This is one of those places that you come across while visiting Pike Place. You can see their cheese machine churning milk into curds from the street and it is a fascinating process. go inside and get in line to taste and buy cheese.

Really, it is all so good, that the biggest challenge is not spending too much money. Everything you can buy here is equal to the best high end cheese shop anywhere.

“Have to try!”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

We stopped for a light lunch on an afternoon of exploring! Loved the samples of their cheeses and crackers. The mac and cheese was delicious! My grilled cheese was good - probably would have been better if I had eaten there. There are a few counter stools overlooking the cheese making behind glass windows. Definitely a "must do, must try" when in Seattle!

“Cheese Curds! Cheese Curds! give me more!”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Unfortunately, for me, I was unable to try one of their famous Mac & Cheese. However, I sampled several of their cheeses and all were amazing! We bought a pound of the cheese curds - wish I had purchased more as they were absolutely amazing! he following day we visited a Famous Cheese Factory elsewhere and I was extremely disappointed as I had just savoured Beecher's cheese and Beecher's puts the competition to shame! I highly reccomend. The window display of the cheese curds being produced is really amazing!

“Good cheese maker & shop”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

I've had a lot of mac and cheese over the years, and this has to be one of the best. Buy it along with a herb bread stick and we ate well.

“Grilled cheese is a must”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

If you love handmade cheese you need to visit Beechers. They make really good handmade cheese. I had to give it an excellent rating, for what it is. This is a simple meal but very yummy. The grilled cheese is awesome - a great hot snack while out cruising the pike place market !
