  • This is a “must” visit shop. The store is filled with amazing cheese from around the world, honey, spreads, crackers and WINE. That would be enough but this is an Experience. The staff greets you...

  • When we visit Carmel the Cheese Shop at The Carmel Plaza is our last stop before we go home. If you love Cheese and wine well this is your SPOT! They have wine tasting in the back but all the cheese loving action is in the front. They allow you to try as many cheeses as you want and all of the employees are so educated in the different cheeses and where their made and even what local chef's order for their restaurants. The choices are overwhelming but you definitely will discover several cheeses you will love. One of my FAVORITES is the Tennessee Whiskey cheese and the PINK CHEESE also if you love spicy try the RATTLESNAKE!! They have fabulous triple creme cheese and all the jams, nuts, dried fruits, oil, olives and anything else you need to make a great Charcuterie Plate for you or any size party you may be planning! Enjoy!!
  • Cozy shop of cheese and wine. As we enter, we were blasted with full aroma of flavorful cheese. They said they have hundreds of variety, and offered many types for us to taste. It's quite expensive though.
