While walking along Magnolia Avenue to one of my favorite Near Southside eateries, I had the most wonderful surprise of stumbling across the new Magnolia Cheese Company. I decided it was fate that I was to eat lunch there instead of my usual spot.This open and inviting space is home to a cut-to-order artisan cheese shop, boutique market and cafe with a full menu of sandwiches and salads, fresh to order for lunch or dinner. You can try local and regional cheeses to take home or enjoy with a glass of wine with friends. They're open Tuesday - Thursday: 11am-9pm; Friday - Saturday: 11am-10pm and Sunday: 11am-6pm. With friendly service and cozy atmosphere of mismatched antique furniture and hues of blue and yellow, Magnolia Cheese Co. is the perfect addition to Magnolia Avenue and we look forward to coming back again and again.
What we tried: the Veggie Love Sandwich: hummus de jour, avocado, cukes, sherry glazed mushrooms and sprouts on a 5 grain bread. It is fresh deliciousness. And this hardly needs to be said, but don't skip on the cheesecake!
