Cheese Shop

Cheese Shop has been spotted on all seven continents, gracing locales along the Great Wall of China, beside the Pasteur Institute in Paris, and amid the crags of Glacier National Park. Franchises or trademarked cheese meteors aren't the worldly cause, however: the deli's Frisbee Challenge sends logo-emblazoned discs with wayfaring customers, whose photo ops earn them a discount and spot on the dining room's wall of honor. Second-generation owners Tom and Sandy Schutz helm the cheese-shop-turned-café within downtown San Diego's historic Horton Grand Hotel, whose Victorian stained glass windows filter soft light onto breakfasts of buckwheat pancakes and hash-brown-flanked omelets, which are served all day. Six varieties of gourmet grilled cheese anointed with spices such as pesto and jalapeños join overstuffed sandwiches piled high with house-cured and house-smoked morsels of sirloin, pork, and chicken. Outside, a brick patio crowns white wrought iron tables with cups of coffee, tea, and hand-shaken bloody marys beneath trees wrapped in twinkling lights. Cheese Shop also delivers meals to downtown homes and offices free of charge.:


Retro, fun, diner feel to the atmosphere. Friendly, wonderful service.
