  • We were walking to Pike Place market and saw the cheese making equipment in the window. A huge vat of milk,etc was being stirred by a large mixer as the curds and whey were being formed. The line to g...  more »
  • This place is all about the cheese and unless your lactose intolerant then you should definitely go there for the free and great samplers alone. If you're inclined then grab a snack. It did! Really ni...  more »
  • In the Pike Market this is a great place to grab a bite of local fare. Beecher's is always busy and a favourite for the food tours. There is an overlook where you can watch cheese being made and a sma...  more »

  • No other cheese shop has its factory installed and open for viewing alongside it’s purchase line. You can see the workers processing the milk curds, and the freshness really shines through in the cheeses. What’s especially great is that all the Beecher produced cheeses (since they also sell other brands) are vegetarian friendly since they’re produced with microbial rennet (not animal intestines). Each cheese is labeled with the type of rennet so you know what you’re buying. Moreover, the employees are so knowledgeable and can tell you everything you need to know. They are more than happy to give out samples so you know what to buy and what it’ll taste like. The flagship cheddar is name as the best American cheddar by the American cheese society and I️ highly recommend it, but I️ also love their Brie and other types.
  • This is coming from someone who doesn't crave mac and cheese and thinks the smell of melting cheese makes you nauseous, but this place is on another level. The moment I entered this palace, my nostrils filled with a delicious cheese aroma I hadn't smelt before . I ordered the original mac and cheese, and was that a delight! The mac and cheese were dancing around my mouth and complimented each other perfectly. Cannot wait to come back!
  • A fun experience with some tasty cheese. Heading down to Beecher’s in Pike’s Place Market is always a treat as you can watch them make the fresh cheese curds right in front of you while you have a snack. Their cheese is delicious and there curds are great (although not squeaky like Quebec cheese curds).
  • We tried the original mac & cheese in a small size. It was pretty good—cheesy and saucy. They make their cheese in-house. There's a small seating area where you can look through the glass and observe their cheese making facility.
  • Wide selection of delicious local cheeses. The employees are very friendly and willing to provide plenty of helpful advice about cheese. You can even watch them make it in the store. I can't get enough of their cheese curds.

Where to stay in Seattle

Famous for its architecture, Seattle's downtown area features a range of lodging options, including high-end hotels offering expensive rooms with views over Elliott Bay. Remember that despite their prices, many hotels in this waterfront district provide rather small rooms. If you need more space but don't want to break the bank, head out of downtown to some of the city's outlying neighborhoods. Seattle's diverse suburbs offer affordable bed and breakfasts, providing you with all the comforts of home and allowing you to see what local life is really like.
