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.

Cheesetique is a great place to find new cheese and wine, and to try their excellent menu. They have tons of great options, but their cheese is definitely on the pricey size. That being said, I still love going there.

I love going here to find new cheeses to eat. Pricing is a bit high for cheese by the pound but they offer many cheese options. For the area you will pay about the same anywhere. Their lunch was good. I prefer going there just to buy cheese and gifts though.

I love Cheesetique, or, more specifically, I love the Del Ray area Cheesetique. I always bring my out-of-town guests that adore cheese and wine here. One friend, who regularly tours the wineries in Napa Valley, always wants Cheesetique on his visits. I am not able to drink wine myself, but I will take it as a good sign about their... More

We went to Cheesetique on the weekend. There was 4 of us we all ordered different items. The service was not the best which surprised me because they were not busy. We each tried at least one bite of the others order. I found the food bland and not worth the bother.
