Cheese shops can be as daunting as shopping for wine. Not at Vivant! Danika and her staff put you at ease and with a few questions narrow your search for the perfect single cheese or assortment of cheeses. It's the perfect place to stop off before wine tasting. Pick up (or order ahead) a few cheese plates/boxes and you're good... More

Excellent place for food and wine and of course, cheese. Good outside dining in the shade but note that it is best for lunch when the outside temperature has warmed up a bit. Lots of specialty foods (eat here or take out) to choose from providing a different slant on the more traditional fare offered by other establishments.

Vivant Cheese is a great stop in Wine Country. They have a plethora of wonderful cheeses. The staff and owner are friendly and extremely knowledgable. This is the perfect stop on your way to wine tasting or for a break at lunch. aafflyer: Sorry to disagree but they have tons of bulk cheese. In fact I would say more than... More

Visiting Paso Robles end of November I was dreaming of great cheeses and pâtés to share with friends while visiting wineries, not their pale offerings or their expensive restaurant propositions. Yes I found everything one could wish and more. So many merçis; we truly enjoyed!

I recommend going to the other cheese store in town on 13th street. Just not my cup of tea for what I'm looking for.

Quaint little cheese counter just off the town square in downtown Paso Robles. The staff is helpful with tastings and recommendations. Besides their nice selection of cheeses, they have complementary foods that they'll package for your wine-tasting trip or that you can consume on their patio (which was a bit rundown when we visited).

My daughter and I love to lunch at Vivant. The cheese platter with olives, chorizo or salami or prosciutto, and delicious bread is PERFECT. Every single time. They choose a nice variety of cheeses for you and will accommodate any personal preferences you give them. We pair with a local wine or just refreshing iced tea. I also pick up... More

Perfect place to stop by after wine tasting! And immediately felt warmth and a connection to the town and the people via Trina, one of the staff! Will be back some day!!

Doing a wine tasting trip and wanted an alternative to the normal burgers and sandwiches lunch menus at most places. Vivant filled the bill. They have cheese plates, charcuterie, panini, daily soup, and wine. My cheese plate had five cheeses. They even let me substitute one I liked for one on the list I didn't like. Excellent cheeses. The plate... More
