Mission Cheese: A User’s Guide
Artisanal American Cheese | Wine Bar | Craft Beer and Cider | Housemade Pickles | Farmhouse-Inspired Decor
Appetizer: charcuterie plate of shredded duck, housemade pickles, and quince butter
Entree: mac & cheese with clothbound cheddar, washed rind cow’s-milk cheese, and toasted breadcrumbs
Wine: zinfandel, County Line, Russian River
Dessert: milk and cookies, baked to order
Where to Sit: the bar. Crafted from a single slab of wood, it’s the epicenter of Mission Cheese. You’ll get to see the cheesemongers in their element as they select cheeses from the glass cooling cases.
While You’re Waiting
Grab a copy of the current drink list. The wine, beer, and cider offerings update frequently.
Look at the pickling jars lining the shelves and guess what’s in each one. You’ll see all kinds of house-pickled veggies, such as carrots, cauliflower, and California-grown olives.
Treat yourself to a cheese flight. Between the rotating selection and the cheesemongers’ whims, it’s unlikely you’ll ever get the same flight twice.
The iced coffee isn’t chilled hot coffee. It’s cold-brewed for at least 12 hours using beans from Fort Bragg–based Thanksgiving Coffee Company.
Cheesemonger: an expert in cheese. Cheesemongers also tend to have great knowledge in other forms or dairy, such as butter and cream, as well as in breads, fruits, and other foods that help bring out the flavors in cheese.
Levain: French for “leaven,” the word is sometimes used interchangeably with sourdough.
