  • Best gourmet food shop in New England. Outstanding sandwiches, cheeses and specialty foods. Staff is super knowledgeable and friendly. Owners are wonderful people. Oftentimes, my wife and I are too exhausted to cook, so we'll swing into the Cheese Iron to grab a fully cooked roast chicken, brisket or some other beautifully prepared meals that we can take home and enjoy. No muss, no fuss.
  • Upscale cheese shop with a wonderful selection. Employees are extremely helpful and take their time to make sure you leave with only the perfect items for you. Samples are sprinkled throughout the store and you can taste anything before you purchase. Along with cheese; there are meats, chocolate, wine and everything your would need to accompany a cheese plate. Look forward to going back. The included picture is the cheese plate we made with items solely purchased from The Cheese Iron.
  • This is a fantastic little shop. I had a delicious turkey sandwich when I visited. The staff was super friendly and welcoming. There is a small seating area that is a good place to go for a lunch break. Aside from the prepared food they have an incredible selection of different cheeses and snacks. They also have some meats and a wine section. I will definitely be visiting again. I would recommend the Cheese Iron to anyone in the area.
  • Once upon a time, the Cheese Iron was the fairest in the land. It continues to be the fairest in the land to date, even when competing with beauties such as Snow White, Toto's "Africa," or ice cream sammiches. The end. Amen. Love, Miriam.
  • Very helpful and courteous staff, who are also very knowledgeable about the product they sell. I would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys cheese, fine meats, and other tasty high end snacks. The Cheese Iron also has premade sandwiches ready to eat there or grab and go. Make this place your number one stop for assembling party snacks.
