Hands down, one of the best cheese shops in Denver is The Truffle Cheese Shop. They focus on hand made, small batch cheeses that are not in larger chain stores. Rob and Karen Lawler opened The Truffle Cheese Shop in 2000, and they both have a love for food and people.
You can taste any type of cheese they have in the shop and get varying amounts cut to order for you. Specialty cheeses can be a fun, delightful holiday gift this time of year, and The Truffle Cheese Shop will hand deliver orders around Denver the week of December 15th. They also have gift packages that any cheese lover will lover including:
- “Eat Local”- Denver and Colorado producers, including cheese, caramels, jams, tapenades, honey and chocolate.
- Meat Lover- A selection of cured meats, salami and pate, including the world famous Jamon Iberico from Spain.
The second Thursday of every month The Truffle Cheese Shop hosts a beer and cheese pairing where you can sample 4 artisan cheeses, 4 craft beers, fresh fruit and bread all for $20. If you want a finer dining experience with quality, excellent cheese, go to their cheese focused restaurant, The Truffle Table located at 2556 15th St.
The Truffle Cheese Shop is located at 2906 E 6th Ave. Denver 80206. 303-322-7363.
