Reviews for The Cheese Shop

Small shop with a huge selection of cheeses from around the world! If you cannot decide- guys at the counter will help you, they will let you try whatever you are thinking! It would be a nice place to come in when it's nice and warm outside. You can get a wine samples and charcuterie board and enjoy!

The Cheese Shop is a quaint neighborhood shop located in the heart of Iowa. I visited this shop back in January as I was passing through. The cheese board and fruit juice (i) that I purchased were both very good, and definitely a great value. The cheese was unique, and had character. The meats were quality. I'd certainly visit again if I found myself in Des Moines.Final Rating: A good place to get cheese

Helpful staff. Busy place. They used to have a lot of tasting events before covid as well. Good selection of cheese. They do have wine as well but I'm not too big on wine so didn't pay much attention. Staff do offer advise on pairings and suggestions on cheeses to try based on your preferences.
