We were excited to try some craft beer/wine paired with a nice cheese plate. What we got was a beer with no pairing information for me, and a wine with... More

If you like cheese, this (obviously) is the place for you! One of the best grilled cheese sandwiches I have ever had. Not a lot of places to sit here, but the sandwich was very good. There are a couple of options you can have in terms of combinations of cheese and I know that two of them (on separate... More

Didn't know what to expect out of what I thought was a gift shop. Wow it was a pleasant surprise. The food was good and the service was great. Had a nice lunch and took home some great cheese it was a good day!

The best place to grab a sandwich, soup and a glass of wine. Don't forget to sample the delicious cheese and take some home.

Faribault cheese caves are known for its excellent blue cheeses. Do stop into this shop to taste and buy excellent blues and Gouda. But have a beer, wine and a sandwich made with their cheese. This is a local gem

The Cheese Cave is a delightful shop that award winning cheeses both exotic and familiar. The proprietor was incredibly generous about serving complimentary slivers of a lot of the cheeses they have for sale. We took advantage of their sale and got the ‘Blues and Brews’ blue cheese and some ‘Jeff’s Cheddar’. These cheeses are far beyond your normal blue... More
