It's a multifunctional space featuring over 50 varieties of craft cheeses, produced by cheese masters through the original method handed down from generation to generation. At the CheeseBar you'll be able to calmly taste excellence cheeses, paired with a good wine or craft beer, and at the CheeseShop, you'll be able to acquire as much of your favorite cheeses as you wish.
The Queijaria also offers a wide range of accessories for the cheese specialists, from knives in dozens of different shapes, to boards and cutting machines, to all sorts of crackers, jams, olive oils and delicatessen to accompany the cheese. Besides, of course, the wine and craft beers.
