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

Great store and the best blu cheese around! We did not eat at the restaurant, but we were there for a wine and cheese tasting event.

The food at the Cheese Cave is amazing, delicious and high quality. I chose the Fina Turkey Wrap and my friend chose the pizza with gluten free crust. Both were Delicious! The pizza takes a bit longer to make, so it may not be the best choice if you are in a hurry. The staff brought us free samples of... More

The menu has some salads, wraps, sandwiches and pizza. We had a wrap and a sandwich, neither of which was anything to get excited about. The service was painfully slow but the waitress was very nice. The sodas were flat; something is apparently wrong with the dispenser. The locally made cheeses are the attraction and they have several varieties of... More

I expected this place to be a sort of tourist attraction where I would leave feeling entertained but slightly ripped-off, that's not what this place is. The cheese sampler plate for 2 was a good value and a solid light lunch, we chose the cheeses from the cave and they were better than we expected. Servers were nice. We bought... More

My mom and I had a Wednesday afternoon lunch at the Cheese Cave. We sat at the bar. I had wine she had beer. We ordered two of their pizzas, both amazing. We had a quinoa strawberry salad and sampled their olive oils. We ended up purchasing two bottles of their oil. It is currently the nicest dining option in... More

This was a highlight of a long car trip! We arrived only 20 minutes before closing time, but both the young lady at the cheese counter and the cook behind the bar welcomed us in, and never made us feel rushed. Seating was at a big old bar, with a cheese cold case at the end nearest the door. Everything... More

Service is abysmally slow and the staff acts like you are annoying them by asking to purchase their food. The customer is not the first priority. The bread and olive oil was not that great, for some reason they mix the the vinegar into the oil and you get a salad dressing, not what most people want. Also their food... More
