One of my best foodie discoveries in Claremont has been the Cheese Cave. The staff helped me put together a dessert cheese course on two occasions and it turned out great! I also stop in there for lunch sometimes. If you come visit me, I'll take you there!
Here are some of the reasons I like it (in no particular order):
a) Samples. lots of samples.
b) Knowledgable staff & great suggestions
c) Free temporary tattoos by the register
d) They keep a record of what you've bought so if you forget what it was called and want to buy it again, you can.
e) Delicious artisanal cheese and a fantastic selection
f) Crazy good french baguettes
h) Fresh sandwiches to go (different selection every day)
