Artisanal Cheese Shop Culture is Thriving in Denver

New, 1 comment

In the market for fine cheeses?


Cheese-forward establishments, both celebrated old-timers as well as newcomers to the city's flourishing cheese culture (pun intended), are thriving in Denver. In the last few months, three new spots caught our attention.

Mell's Cheese

Recently new to the cheese scene, Mell's Cheese operates from a pleasant LoHi cafe serving wine, beer, small plates, and of course, fine cheeses. The cozy cheese emporium is a great place to sit and chat over a glass of wine and cheese pairing.

New World Cheese

Another adorable neighborhood spot fiercely dedicated to cheese is New World Cheese, located on East Colfax. Cheese-centric tapas and sandwiches are popular here, as are the fun, cheese-themed events hosted at New World. Study up on the history of your favorite cheese dishes or learn how to perfectly pair cheese with beer at this neighborhood nook.

The husband and wife cheese enthusiasts behind the new Sunnyside eatery and gourmet grocery, Cheese+Provisions, have spent a lifetime learning the art of cheese. The new spot is inviting - encouraging guests to sit and dine in-shop, or grab cheese, sliced to order, with a variety of accoutrements to go. There is even a cheese of the month club - a fun way to have new cheese experiences on a monthly basis.

Need more options? Don't miss these now classic spots.

The Truffle Table

The Truffle Table is a long-standing Denver ode to cheese and wine, brought to the LoHi locale by the team behind the Truffle Cheese Shop on 6th Ave. This is one cheese-savvy team here, serving perfect pairings with a wide range of wines and small plates.

Eat + Drink Denver

Yet another LoHi cheesemonger restaurant to add to the list of cheese destinations, Eat + Drink is a charming eatery with a focus on shared plates, paninis and pairings. Pairing events are hosted here often and it is a great place to stop for a fine cheese from the display case.
