Customized culinary bites and a secret sauce

The Cheese Shop in historic Williamsburg is renowned for its cheese, of course, but also for its delicious, made-to-order sandwiches—with delectable ingredients filling each bite. Classics like turkey and cheese get a personalized treatment with customizable additions of greens, tomatoes, house dressing, mayonnaise, and mustard, plus the customer’s choice of bread and cheese (their French bread rules). The shop also offers vegetarian and gluten-free options.

Oh, and that house dressing? Just know that it’s good enough to keep regulars coming back years after moving out of town and can be bought bottled for your home-cooking convenience. The actual secret behind what makes the sauce so mouthwatering remains a mystery. The best way to solve it is to order more sandwiches. CheeseShopWilliamsburg.com
