As our namesake suggests, cheese is our specialty. For decades, restaurateurs, award-winning chefs, connoisseurs and cheese-lovers alike have made Say Cheese the go-to spot in San Francisco to find that extra-special, hard-to-find selection or a comfy favourite to enjoy with a glass of wine or ale. We also have a spotless track record in providing our customers with cheeses to wow even their most knowledgeable friends and guests at parties.
We make it a priority to feature domestic cheeses whenever possible. Cheese making has taken leaps and bounds in recent years in America and we are happy and proud to carry stock from Tennessee, Vermont, Wisconsin, Virginia, Indiana, California, Minnesota, Colorado, New York, and New Hampshire.
We also import only the very best available European cheeses to round out our selection of delicious gooey washed-rind raw milk cheeses, tangy and succulent blues, hearty and nutty alpine cheeses and delicate fresh ewes' and goats' milk cheeses, goudas, Basque cheeses, pecorini, authentic cloth-bound cheddars...the list is long and always changing!
In addition to encouraging our patrons to taste and experiment with the vast array of options we have, we take pride in how we handle these great cheeses and think that's part of what makes us unique. Cheese is alive--it breathes, it ages and it suffers if not treated properly. You can be sure that anything from us has been meticulously cared for and monitored.
