Fill in the blank. Macaroni and ________. Wine and _______. Sometimes, there’s just no substitute. And Seattle makes and carries some of the best in the world!

The Calf and Kid
1531 Melrose Ave, Ste C-2
Seattle, WA 98101

Knowledgeable and helpful, with a big selection. They give samples, and they’ll cut a piece any size you want. For your inner Italian, you’ll find freshly made burrata! Burrata is a shell of pure mozzarella surrounding a gooey cheesy center of mozzarella & cream. Fresh, locally made cheeses and imported, they also have crackers and baguettes to go with the cheeses you choose. In the Melrose Marketplace for just over a year, it’s a cheese lover’s Nirvana.

Beecher’s Handmade Cheese
1600 Pike Place
(between Pine St & Post Ally)
Seattle, WA 98101

Just standing outside Beecher’s, you get an entire education into the cheesemaker’s world. Watch as the cheese is produced right in front of your eyes. Then step inside to a wonderland of freshly made Beecher’s cheese. And taste. Free curd samples are offered. You can order sandwiches, or their amazingly delectable macaroni and cheese. Take home a frozen entrée or two. On busy days at the Market, it’s standing room only inside Beecher’s small dining area. But the smooth and creamy cheese is worth waiting for!

The Cheese Cellar
100 4th Avenue, Ste 150
Seattle, WA 98109

In Fisher Plaza, almost at the foot of the Space Needle, is a quaint little locally owned shop called The Cheese Cellar. Often, you’ll find the owners behind the counter, fixing homemade soups and sandwiches. The warm, wooden interior is inviting if you’d like to sit for a bit. You’ll find more than just cheese. In addition to carrying the finest local and international cheeses, they have top quality cured meats, specialty condiments, picnic supplies…and wines worthy of any fine wine shop.

Delaurenti Specialty Food & Wine
1435 1st Ave
Seattle, WA 98101

With a particularly nice lineup of cheeses, deli meats, pastas, spices, and packaged sauces, they also have a wide variety of international cheeses. Order a grinder, or take home some imported olive oil. You’ll feel like you just stepped out of a Mediterranean market without leaving Seattle.
