“Amazing cheese!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

We LOVE this place and visit every time we're up at the chalet. Excellent selection of cheese, informative staff who make great recommendations. I love that they keep a personal index card of your favourite cheeses as my memory is not reliable. Also a great place to drop in after skiing for a cheese-tasting platter and glass of wine or pot of tea. Highly recommended!

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your experience at The Cheese Gallery. We so appreciate your kind words. Great to hear the "cheese box" helps you keep track of your favourite cheeses so you don't have to try and remember all the names. See you on your next visit!

“Worth the Trip to Thornbury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

Although we live just outside Toronto our family has visited the Georgian Bay area frequently over the past 20 years.

Upon a drive to Thornbury this past summer we wandered into The Cheese Gallery and are extremely pleased that we did. In addition to the outstanding service and exceptional cheese variety and quality what impressed us most was the prioprietor Casey's expertise and passion for the cheeses she served. Our visit was an enjoyable and worthwhile experience and we highly recommend the visit.

Every time we now visit the area we make a point of visiting The Cheese Gallery and remain impressed with the experience provided by Casey and her friendly staff. We look forward to many years of enjoying great cheeses and hospitality.

“It's so much more than cheese @ The Cheese Gallery!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2012

It's the staff, decor, relaxed seating, local artisans' work, teas, wines, beer & yes, cheese, that make this a major destination for anyone! Our B&B Guests tell us that there is nothing like it in Southern Ontario that they are aware of & plan to return for the Cheese Gallery Goodies!
