About Us

The legendary Cheese Shop sandwich is known far and wide as a local staple with a 5-stars rating from Frommer’s Travel Guide. We use only the highest quality meats and cheeses and bake our breads daily. Every sandwich is made to order according to your request. This means that sometimes there is a short wait, but a wait which we’re sure you’ll find to be worth the while.

Our original House Dressing is the extra ingredient that has kept our regulars coming back year after year. We often see William and Mary alumni, migrating back to have their favorite snack: bread ends and House Dressing. Please come in and place your order or call us at 757-220-0298 and we’ll be happy to have your order waiting for you!

After more than thirty years, we still love Cheese Shop sandwiches and suggest that you try out the New York Times’s recommendation, with an impromptu picnic in town or on campus.
