This was one of my family's favorite eateries in New Orleans. If you are a cheese lover, you must stop by the St. James Cheese Company. I have had some delicious cheese in France, Italy, and California but this place serves cheese right up there with the best! Really cool atmosphere, nice servers at the counter, super fresh and large... More

This place has an amazing selection of cheese, meats, and other gourmet items. Great lunches are available. Staff is very knowledgeable. Indoor and outdoor seating. Parking can be difficult during peak meal hours.

Great selection of cheeses, meats, and condiments for your cheese tray. So helpful and you can try samples before purchasing. They even held our purchase so we could pick up near the end of the day. We didn't eat here, but wish we had after seeing the dishes coming out of the kitchen! We will be back!

Found this place after trip advisor's reviews...stopped in for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. This place is precious! Menu is overwhelming for a cheese novice , but the staff was super patient and gave awesome recommendations. So amazing! Def get the cheese bites, combinations that i would have never dreamed of were incredible! Sandwich combos were huge and were big... More

I have been to this restaurant many times before, and it gets better every time. The atmosphere is friendly and kind. And the staff is great. The mozzarella sandwich is excellent.

My wife and I have returned here multiple times for a reason. Their cheese offerings are always a wonderful surprise. Maybe overpriced a little, but it's worth it. The sandwiches are good too and I would strongly recommend the Hook's Sandwich. Great place, so check it out.

We've been to both St James locations several times over the past two years. Always wonderful. Sandwiches are quite large, so my wife and I will usually split one. Salads and sandwiches are all very tasty and fresh. Their wine selection is small, but they have some very good choices.

You better have some idea about what you want before you go in the door. Otherwise it's overwhelming. The menu is on the wall and it takes a while to read the whole thing. There's that much. Ploughman's Lunch was generous. 3 substantial pieces of cheeses, 2 slices of pate, a chutney and french bread. Couldn't finish it all. Also... More

Wonderful place for lunch, so many cheeses and cheese plates to choose from. Sandwiches are great too...Only difficulty is finding someplace close to park.

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighbourhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
