The Legendary Cheese Shop Sandwich


The legendary Cheese Shop sandwich is known far and wide. It carries with it a 5-stars rating from Frommer’s Travel Guide. We use only the highest quality meats and cheeses and bake our breads daily. Every sandwich is made to order according to your request. That means that sometimes there is a short wait, but we’re sure you’ll think it’s worth it. Or call ahead at 757-220-0298. We’ll have your order waiting for you.

Original House Dressing


Our original House Dressing is the extra ingredient that has kept our regulars coming back year after year. We often see William and Mary alumni, coming back to have their favorite snack: bread ends and House Dressing. Come in and place your order or call us at 757-220-0298 and we’ll be happy to have your order waiting for you.
