The Village Cheese Shop is a European-inspired shop dedicated to bringing the best in cheese and specialty food to the heart of metro Milwaukee.
Cheese is the focus of what we do. Our curated selection of artisan cheeses consists of 80+ cheeses focusing on Wisconsin, the Midwest, and specialties from Europe. Our cheesemongers can guide you through our selection, taste with you and find the right cheese to satisfy. Your cheese will be cut from the wheel, allowing you the freshest, best quality possible and wrapped in our cheese paper to assist in preserving it’s quality.
Our curated wine selection has 120 different bottles from all over the world. Our focus is small, family producers, highlighting wines that are food and cheese focused. With most bottles ranging from $15-20, like our cheeses, we want our selections to be accessible, for you to enjoy good wine on a frequent basis.
Our meat selection includes a wide range of local and European meats: Prosciutto di Parma, Mortadella, Sopressata, Iberico Ham, Chorizo, specialty meats from the Midwest including Smoking Goose and Driftless Provisions. Many meats are cut to order, some already and sold pre-wrapped.
We ordered a sandwich platter and large salad for a birthday party. Everything was delicious and looked beautiful! All of our guests commented on how delicious each of the sandwiches were and everyone loved the salad. We also picked up three bottles of wine while we were there picking up our items. The wines were a hit as well! I highly recommend The Village Cheese Shop for all of your sandwich, salad, wine, and cheese needs!
Stopped in this little gem of a shop this morning! I think I found my new happy place! Can't wait to go back for some of their happy hour specials! Tried the Greek Salad and picked up a few samples of cheese and wine. Highly recommend a stop in! This is the equivalent of Door County Creamery which is my favorite spot to go in DC for a light lunch and wine. Super friendly and helpful staff. Reasonable prices.
I recently discovered an awesome place to buy cheese: The Village Cheese Shop in Wauwatosa WI. I stopped there on 3-16-20 to shop for cheese and meat to serve at a Riesling wine tasting event I hosted. I was fairly clueless about what to buy. Shop owner, Sabrina, was very generous with her knowledge and time, helping me select four European cheeses and Northern Italian Prosciutto that paired perfectly with my wine choices. My guests raved about the cheeses. My experience was everything I could have hoped for: lots of options and great service. Highly recommended; 6 stars on a scale of 5!
Yesterday was my first visit to the Village Cheese Shop. I picked up a charcuterie board to go along with olive tapenade. Such a fun dinner! Best tapenade that I have had! Thanks for the nice change of pace.
What a treasure this place is! Sure, there are countless places in the city to buy high quality and artisan cheeses, but few that have the Village Cheese Shop's charm. Like much of the newly rehabbed Tosa Village, the Village Cheese Shop has a European feel. A place where you can stop in for cheese, get lost in a conversation with the knowledgeable and charming Sabine and end up staying over an hour.
