Why locals recommend it
The people who run it are completely entrenched in the cheese world, from the farm to the cheesemaking to cooking and retail. Selections change daily, and they have a beautiful hand-carved bar. It’s a great place to meet a friend because you can linger like you’re at a coffee shop, except they serve wine and cheese.

“Millennials love to stand in lines. Go mid-morning on weekdays to avoid long lines. But, the food is well worth it! Riches beyond your wildest dreams: butter-golden pains au chocolat, cappuccinos with ferns drawn in dense foam and croque monsieurs turbo-loaded with ham, two kinds of cheese and béchamel. Don't be dismayed by the inevitable line out the door – it moves fast – but be aware that lolling in Dolores Park is the only possible post-Tartine activity.”
