Though it does more cheese, Cheese Chalet and owners Henry and Carol Huffman are still focused on fromage, from Norwegian Gjetost to prized Parmesan Reggiano to classic Maytag bleu. Original cheese spreads are made in house, too. Hot sweet raspberry chipotle spread and walnut- and bacon-infused cheddar are tops.
One of the coolest things about Cheese Chalet is that customers can sample any of its 50-plus types of cheese at any time. The Chalet’s selection spans at least 10 countries, including favorites like cave-aged Swiss Gruyère, Spanish Manchego, double cream Brie and sharp Canadian cheddar. For 32 years, owners Henry and Carol Huffman have sold quality cheese at a reasonable price. Their hot sweet raspberry chipotle spread is a treat.
