“Eat Cheese, Drink Wine, Live Life Happy!”
The Cheese Shop in Carmel by The Sea is a little bit of heaven for cheese lovers. As soon as I heard about it, I knew that I’d be visiting the shop during the few days I spend in the city. The store is in Carmel Plaza. The courtyard is beautifully landscaped and there are tables and chairs, if you need to eat some cheese right away.
The shop is small and packed with a huge assortment of cheese (and wine!) from around the world.They had my favorite Northern California cheese brand, Cypress Grove, and a whole lot of cheeses that were brand new to me. There was cheese made from cow’s milk, goat’s milk and sheep’s milk, hard cheese and soft cheese, fresh cheese and aged cheese. They have it all!
It was a little crowded the afternoon I stopped by, but the staff did a great job giving everyone personal attention. They offered samples to all and were able to answer questions to help people find what they were looking for. They really know their cheese!
