There is always a line but it moves quick. Look at a menu while in line to speed things up. Scattered tables both inside and out. Not cheap but quality is good

Big fan of the cheese shop! Their cheese plates are outstanding. I got one with some meats and fruit added on and took it home for a fun after kids are asleep treat.

Always crowded, but worth the wait. Great cheeses and take out sandwiches. Worth just tasting the cheeses and having a glass of wine or beer.

My husband and I were looking for a late lunch and stopped here while visiting Colonial Williamsburg. The sandwiches we got were ok, but the bread they are served on is awesome. The weather was perfect for us to eat outside today.
