I had a late lunch here and am in love! They have a really great, nuanced selection of cheeses and accompaniments, including locally sourced wines and apertifs. And they actually serve their cheese at appropriate temperatures, which so many 'cheese' places don't. They were also...More

This little place looked very interesting so stopped in for dinner. What a treat! Good food done uniquely, lovely cheeses and wine to go with. Waitress we had was very knowledgeable and friendly. Can't remember her name, but she was born in Germany!

Really enjoyed the various options of meat and cheese combinations. The options are 3,5,10 combos of meat and cheese. The addition of fresh vegetables and dried fruit add to eats appeal. My favorite meat is the duck. My favorite cheese is the Batch 11.

So many places in Old Town are just OK since they mainly serve tourists who are only here for a short time and may never return. La Fromagerie is the exception and has many loyal local followers. It is worth your time to go to...More

This is a top-notch restaurant. This was some of the best cheese and charcuterie I've had in the US. As a European, I crave this type of food and so really enjoyed stumbling across this gem. The portions may not be massive, but you pay...More

Description
La Fromagerie's Bistro is the perfect place to enjoy a cheese and meat plate with a glass of wine in a relaxed, intimate atmosphere. Owner and Chef Sebastien Tavel bases his elegant, light fare menu around fresh seasonal food available from local farmers, particularly the heirloom and forageable produce that help support the biodiversity of our area.
