Cuba Cheese Shoppe, Cuba

Nestled in the farmlands 70 miles southeast of Buffalo, NY lies the small village of Cuba. Known in the 1900’s as the “Cheese Capital of the World,” on every Wednesday during the first half of the century, the US market price for cheese was set at the Kinney Hotel in Cuba, NY. While the US market price is now set by the National Cheese Exchange in Green Bay WI, Cuba has remained a top producer of world renowned cheese.

For over a century, award-winning Cuba cheese was only available to the commercial food industry and a few select mail-order customers. It wasn’t until 1976, when the Cuba Cheese Shoppe decided to open its doors and establish a retail cheese outlet, that Cuba cheese finally became available to the general public.

Today, in addition to the retail outlet, the Cuba Cheese Shoppe also ships its products (most notably their award-winning New York State White Cheddar Cheese, cold-pack cheese spreads, and specialty gourmet gift packages) to mail-order and internet customers across the country.

  • Nice little cheese shop with a great selection. Also, locally made goodies, meats, jams, and sauces. Prices are good too!  more »
  • A whole lot more than just cheese. Cinnamon rolls, Bulk candy, dressings, sauces, snacks +. Lots of cheese as expected. Great store, well worth stopping in.  more »
  • Hands down the best cheese around. I use their cheeses when I make my pizza at home and it's wonderful. Their Italian cheese curds are my favorite, I could eat them till I'm sick, so good.
  • Largest selection of cheese in one place I've ever seen! Great flavors, very clean store, and friendly helpful staff. Recommend stopping if your passing by on route 17/86!
