Not far off the main square. Small place, but lots of varieties of cheeses that they make right here - try some to see what you like. Lots of parking.

Been visiting for over 50 years. The detour from Highway 101 has always been a diversion on our trip to the Redwoods. The free samples have always been a treat. The bakery and nearby wineries have made the detour very important. Park near the town...More

This is the very best place to get cheese. It's in a historic building on a side street near the downtown Sonoma Plaza. All of the cheeses are excellent; they are known for the dry Monterey Jack. Lots of awards. You can taste a sample...More
