  • The place has many types of cheese. They offer some samples that you can taste for free. It is a good place to find a gift for a friend. 
  • Been to this nice cheese place twice when visited last month. First time was a older lady who walks with a limp. She was not that friendly but not overly rude either. I've found the younger staffs muc...  more »

  • Cheese, cheese, cheese, cheese... If you are familiar with the Monty Python cheese shoppe skit, then rest assured, this is NOTHING like that! The only way it is similar is that some of the obscure cheeses you hear referenced in the Python skit may actually be found at Fromagination. For a cheese lover, this shop is paradise! They truly have an amazing selection and variety of cheeses to select from along with other things to accompany whatever you take home - including some meats, crackers, sweets, serving utensils, etc. If it has anything to do with cheese or serving cheese, they are likely to have it. The staff are VERY friendly and helpful and REALLY know their stuff. The wide variety of cheeses they have in stock on any given day is absolutely incredible and ranges from little-known, artisan cheese from Wisconsin to both rare and popular imported cheeses. The shop is located on the capitol square in downtown Madison, so there is no parking immediately on site, but there are plenty of parking structures and surface lots within a block or two of capitol square. The shop is handicap accessible, but it is a very small shop with much of the space taken up by counters and refrigerator/display cases for the cheese, so it could be a bit challenging to navigate with a wheelchair, stroller, etc. On busy days downtown (for instance, farmer's market days), it has a tendency to become a bit crowded, so you might want to avoid on the busiest days at the capital (especially if you have a tendency to be claustrophobic). However, ultimately, if you are seeking a wide variety of high quality cheeses to select from, this is the place to be! It is one of my favorite shops in town! Besides, what could be a more appropriate place to have a cheese shop than the Wisconsin state capitol? If you're in Madison and you want cheese, this is the place to go.
  • Amazing selection of cheeses, and craft beer. The service was very friendly however the prices were a bit high
  • Lovely little cheese shop with the perfect variety of food to make a nice picnic, pick up a sandwich, or grab a little sweet treat.
  • If you are visiting Madison, you have to go here. You'll get an awesome Wisconsin cheese experience. They let you try any cheese you want to. The staff are all very friendly and eager to tell you everything about each cheese. They really are experts. And the cheese is heavenly.
  • I did not actually end up eating here, so this is only a review of the service. I was turned away from eating here because of the service. I wanted to order a signature sandwich without the olive tapenade, and the woman working behind the counter was very rude, unaccommodating, and told me it would take an extra 10 minutes to make the sandwich. I noticed that there are other reviews on here in which people commented on how rude and snotty the staff is...hate to say it, but they were right. Hopefully management reads these reviews and can hire and train people on good customer service because your current staff is deterring business.
