The Cheese shop, Colonial Williamsburg
I can't deny that I go weak in the knees for a plate of beautiful cheese. I first dined at The Cheese Shop with my girlfriend Bre this past spring and fell in love with the entire shop. Since my husband has only heard me rave about the place, we stopped by for a quick lunch during our drive up to D.C.. We shared a prosciutto sandwich on focaccia, a glass of wine, and a delicious plate of cheese and salami. If you can't decide on one of the many cheeses just feel free to ask for a sample before you commit, they believe in their product and make sure you enjoy what you're getting too. As usual everything was fantastic! When we finally reached the point of cheese coma, I took up our leftover plate and had it wrapped for me to take. The staff and environment are wonderful and I hope you can indulge in the goodness soon.
In addition to their wonderful spread of cheese, the shop has a great selection of specialty food items, a fantastic deli, and an impressive wine cellar downstairs. Being attached to The Fat Canary, which is on my list of "to dine" while living in Virginia, makes this shop even more inviting. Be sure to drop in for a snack, meal, or visit The Fat Canary for a wonderful dinner!
