Friendly and knowledgeable staff and all the right elements: grilled cheese sandwiches, every cheese imaginable to purchase by the ounce, accessories, serve-ware, condiments...they have it all. And $5 fridays is hugely popular for good reason! BYOB and they serve up all the cheese you can possible consume.

Two of us enjoyed lunch in this small cheese shop. The sandwiches we had were excellent and reasonably priced. The owners are very friendly and helpful. If you love cheese, you’ll enjoy your visit.

We had a couple of the grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch-one was turkey with avocado and the other was bacon and some other tasty things. Both were delicious. Nice café environment

Delicious cheeses and very knowledgeable staff. The sub sandwiches are some of the best I have ever had. I have been here many times and never been disappointed.

The staff is awesome, the cheese is amazing, the prices are more than reasonable. Stopped in with a friend while we were wondering around Red Bank one day and they patiently helped us select an assortment of cheeses we ended up loving. Now my go to spot.l

Not being familiar with many of the restaurants in the area I googled best sandwiches in Monmouth County and the first thing that came up was the Cheese Cave. What a great choice. My wife loves the New Orleans classic Muffulettas which I... More

Recommended to me by the woman who made my coffee at Rooks, around the corner. Excellent cheeses and sandwiches. Try the ham and Swiss - it's excellent. Clean store with excellent service. As Arnold said, "I'll be back"!

What a treat! My husband and I wandered accidentally into a treasure! Small, but well-stocked cheese shop with friendly and knowledgeable staff, also serving the most OUTRAGEOUSLY delicious GRILLED CHEEESE SANDWICHES!!! We were encouraged to come back for their $5-Friday Night Wine Tasting...we live out of town, but will make it a destination trip very soon!

Spent an hour, before a Count Basie show, for the Friday night cheese tasting. $5 got you a tasting for two, with a discount on any cheese purchases. BYOB, so took a bottle of wine and a couple of beers. Loved the cheese selection offered that night and came home with a goat cheese and a blue cheese. Seating was... More
