Cheese, wine and bread, are the ‘holy trinity’ of food and simple entertainment. We believe that some of the most complex flavors come from the most simple and basic ingredients. These foods have stood the test of time for centuries and will continue to have a place on our tables. The Cheese Iron is a full-service, European style cheese shop with over 200 domestic and international cheeses. However we are not just cheese.

We have olive oils, olives, various balsamic, vinegars, jams & jellies, artisan chocolates, unique confections, teas, single estate coffee, pantry provisions, local ales, fresh daily baked bread and a small but fabulous baked goods area.

We create wonderful cheese and charcuterie platters for any occasion, and we can cater your party!
