Cheese was the first food to evolve from liquid to solid, sparking a culinary revolution and the invention of teeth. Today's Groupon fans the fires of the revolution: for $5, you get $10 worth of food and drink at Old World Cheese Shop. A warning to Gouda groupies and Limburger lovers: Old World Cheese Shop's slogan is "No Cheese, Just Sandwiches," so you'll have to get your feta fix elsewhere, like from mousetraps.
Located in the Sherwood Forest Shopping Center, Old World Cheese Shop, a longtime staple of the area, forges freshly sliced feasts from food and folklore. The Robin Hood cold sandwich ($6.75) robs from the kitchen and gives to the stomach with delicious ham and turkey, crisp bacon, cheese, and golden dressing stacked between three slices of pumpernickel bread, while the Sir Galahad steamed sandwich ($6.75) is a gallant warrior of roast pork, cheese, and sweet-pepper jelly served hot on an onion roll. Those hungry for tie-dye-tinted trips into the subconscious may opt for the Pita Fhonda pita ($5.95), featuring Old World Cheese Shop's acclaimed tuna salad.
This Groupon is also good toward Old World Cheese Shop's catering services and selection of retailed gourmet items, such as cookies and coffee in which to dip your dangerously under-caffeinated cookies.
- I remember having lunch there when I worked at University State Bank starting in 1979. It seems to be almost the same as then. So many great eateries have come and gone…the tradition carrys [sic] on. – AlexanderABC, Citysearch
- I can never decide what to get when I visit because all of the sandwiches look so good. There are a variety of breads, cheeses and meats to choose from, all named after people like Friar Tuck and Robin Hood. – Amanda H., Insider Pages
- The food here is consistently excellent. The meats and cheeses are freshly sliced every morning, and the sandwiches are generously filled. – Benjamin M., Yelp
