They seem to have everything in there! No deli permit so they can’t make you a sandwich but they do sell slices of cheese, salamander bread if you wanted to make your own dry sandwich. Taste new stuff... more »
Best spot in Carmel.....cheese and wine tasting/sampling. They carry over + or - 200 cheeses .....depending on the season from the US and over the globe. 40...yes 40 Blue Cheeses. I'd call it Heaven on Earth. We were there an hour or so tasted more than 40....bought 17 different kinds. Ask for Cheese Monger Katie Glitz....she knows the details of every cheese...where, how and by whom it's made + all the specifics of taste, texture, and what foods / wines it pairs well with. Carmel isnt a complete experience without a stop in The Cheese Shop...in the back of Carmel Plaza. Way to go Katie👍⭐👍⭐👍⭐👍⭐
This was one of the highlights of our weekend in Carmel. As soon as we walked in the staff was feeding us samples. We probably had 15 samples and never felt pressure to purchase. Our host taught us a ton about different cheeses and processes. We bout a few blocks of cheese and some bread for a nice dinner. Incredible experience and selection.
