Amazing selection of cheese here. The staff is extremely helpful, and despite the earlier reviews I personally think that the service is relatively quick. Their baked goods are remarkable as well; I would personally recommend the hazelnut shortbread.

They do have a great selection of cheeses (some of which I hear aren't supposed to be imported). My only problem is that it's often mobbed by people taking their sweet time. It's a whole production where you ask about a cheese, taste the cheese, decided if you want to buy the cheese. This is all well and good, but a bunch of people simply waste time grazing! If you're actually there to do business, expect to kill at least 30-45 minutes on a weekend. I'm all about artisan markets, but seeing people waste so much time when it's clearly super busy is frankly annoying. The bread is good though their "baguettes" are weird and short. They occasionally have good muffins. I don't like their "wolverines" as they're as thick as hard tack. They also sell their Cheeseboard Pizza half-baked and ready to-go. You can get a whole pie or just half for $18 and $9 respectively.

Cheeseboard pizza down the street may be famous (rightfully so) for their delicious pizza, but I also am a fan of Cheese Board bakery because of their delicious selection of breads and cheeses. It can get crowded so you may have to wait for a short while. The staff is very helpful and will cut you slices of cheeses they think you may like so you can try before you buy. There is also a great selection of delicious breads w/ cheese and pesto toppings that make a great snack or part of a lunch.

PROS: fabulous selection, good prices, great service
CONS: none!

this is the best and most extensive cheese selection i have seen on the west coast. when you enter you take a card (ace, king, etc.). don't be fooled by the line of people in front of you - they move through the customers pretty fast. they allow you to sample everything and before you know it you're in line with many exotic cheeses and a price tag to boot. the breads are wonderful. the cheese bread was exceptional. the service - more than pleasant and there's a camraderie with the customers - it's a great place!

PROS: everything
CONS: a little pricey
