Three of us stopped in for lunch and absolutely enjoyed ourselves. The cheese sandwich (your choice) and soup special is a great choice. I tried the enchilada mac and found it very tasty, although not heavy on chicken or spices as advertised. Good, none the less. Quaint, cozy and a friendly wait staff. Slightly expensive for what you're getting.

No wonder there are now 3 locations for Cheesetique...it's THAT good! An imaginative selection of grilled cheese sandwiches, other entrees, salads, beer wines and cocktails, brunch, discount in the shop when you dine there. Cheese to go and all the accoutrements, excellent but infrequent tasting classes - sign up for their newsletter! And, a unique place to take visiting relatives!

We went to brunch with some friends and it was nice but nothing special. My husband had the pork hash (a bit small for him) and I had the green eggs and ham (pesto benedict). We also shared the mimosa bucket with our friends, which is a bottle of bubbly and a carafe of OJ for $25, so that's a... More

A charming neighborhood location with a store in front and several tables in the rear. Not large, so a reservation is a good idea. A bucket of Mimosas is $25 and has a bottle of bubbly and a carafe of OJ. A good deal. Lobster Mac & Cheese was very good, but really, everything was.

How can you not love the apple squash soup when it arrives all jazzed up! This is a winter bring-em-back item. Unique taste, not sweet at all. Only thing better would be a bigger bowl!

Quaint little cheese shop that is also a restaurant. We recently had dinner there and each of us (2 couples) enjoyed our non meat dinners. This local chain has a few restaurants, ours had a bar. I am not sure if they all do. I shared a spinach salad and a grilled cheese with pear. both were very good. My... More

I was in town for business and wanted to try a new eatery for lunch. The reviews for this cafe made the 1.5 mile walk from the Braddock Road Metro stop worth a try. Luckily I showed up early for lunch (11:30am-ish) because the small seating area filled up fast. I ordered the Italian red wine flight and mixed board... More

This is a cheese and wine shop with seating in the back for lunch or dinner. It's a cute little shop and there are lots of cheeses and wines to learn about while you wait to be seated. We stopped in for lunch on a weekday with a friend and were seated promptly. We ordered a mixed board with different... More

Nice place for brunch. I liked the pretty decoration. As the name says, the menu has many dishes with cheese. I order a great melted cheese sandwich with tomato soup for dipping. I did not like the Bloody Mary since they prepare it with beer instead of vodka.

Thank AnaZad
