Ten years ago Steve Jones opened up his cheese shop, aptly named Cheese Bar on Southeast Belmont. Prior to this shop, he operated Steve’s Cheese inside the Square Deal Wine Company on Northwest Thurman.
Cheese Bar is one of the finest cheese shops around and is led by Jones, an award winning cheesemonger. Plus the shop offers some great food, beer and wine offerings that cannot be beat.
