The Arboretum in North Austin has a new spot for wine and cheese. Austin Cheese Co., located at 10000 Research Boulevard, serves dozens of cheeses, lunch specials, wine, beer, and other artisan goods.
The shop has a rotating selection of about 80 cheeses, which are mostly from the United States. There are more traditional styles like clothbound cheddar and aged gouda as well as more unusual cheeses like morbier-style goat cheeses. Cheese can be sampled, arranged in a charcuterie board, or taken to-go. In the near future, Austin Cheese Co. plans to host “Cheese 101” tastings on-site to help educate people about different cheese.
The shop serves a selection of sandwiches, soups, and salads for lunch, like a bacon and brie sandwich, green goddess salad, and super cheesy mac and cheese. There’s also craft beer, many wines, and cheese accompaniments like jams, chocolates, and honey.
Austin Cheese Co. is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.
