Editorial review from Citysearch 2/16/2013

What a great little gem. One of the worker's, Claudine, was amazing and spent a great deal of time trying to find a cheese my 10 year old would like. They both seemed to have fun working on this endeavor. Has a lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and is a great find. more

If you like fine foods this is the place for you. Grab a great bottle of wine, some cheese, and FANTASTIC service. They gladly took me in 5min before close and spent well over 40min with me with all the great items they had on hand. \r \r Passion is a wonderful thing, especially whey there's food involved. This is the place for you if you love cheese. DON'T come here if you're expecting a 10"" tall sandwich made from cheap product, it's good food, for people that have an advanced level of taste. Pros: Fine and rare cheeses and meats Cons: it's pricey, but you get what you pay for. more

Great service and best veggie sandwich in Silver Lake! 10/8/2008

It was my favorite type of morning, the kind that's a bit chilly with a little drizzle making me want to be somewhere cozy, drinking a frothy cappuccino or a thick hot chocolate while dipping a warm, crunchy, buttery baguette into both. A friend invited me for breakfast to this local cafe that I've driven and walked by for a year but never felt the pull to visit, what a mistake!!! Say Cheese has everything I love about a cafe, a European ambience but with great American service. Brian, our server, was excellent! He made sure we were comfortable, happy and was very attentive without being too intrusive throughout our 2 hour stay. I'm a vegetarian and was wary about ordering the veggie sandwich because most restaurants think vegetarian food has to be boring but to my surpirse, the portobello sandwich was very tasty. Go and enjoy yourself at Say Cheese and say hi to Brian. more

Jewel in Silver Lake - Fromagerie & Cafe - Delicious food & coffee, gorgeous selection of cheeses 9/8/2008

We tried Say Cheese for breakfast: morning cheese plate came with a sampling of exquisite gourmet cheeses, a couple of strawberries, dried fruit, and a baguette. The European Ham & Gruyere on a croissant was utterly delicious - served with gourmet mustard. The caffe latte was unmatched. And the orange juice tasted fresh-squeezed. Our waiter was very attentive. Afterwards, we enjoyed perusing the little fromagerie. Glenn (behind the counter) was friendly and clearly an expert in cheese and gourmet meat. He let us sample the gorgeous Serrano ham, Pata Negra, various salamis (the pepper salami was our favorite)... we left with a big bag filled to the brim with cave-aged gouda, gruyere, melt-in-your-mouth goat cheese, the Serrano ham, and pepper salami... and couldn't resist adding several of the flaky, buttery croissants. What a picnic we had later! It was truly an experience... and we'll stop by again very soon. Pros: High quality food, great selection of cheese, knowledgeable & friendly staff more

Splendid all around 8/13/2008

Strange. The employee the previous reviewer is referring to is the primary reason why I return to Say Cheese again and again. I have learned an immense about cheese in general over the past few years primarily due to his knowledge and willingness to take the time both to determine the types of cheese that fit my taste in particular as well as to take me through the reasons why I might like a particular cheese over another. I am helplessly addicted to this place. Say Cheese is also a great place to grab lunch int eh area. Cozy and delicious. Unequivocally highly recommended. Pros: ambiance, service, products more

Yum Bagel & Coffee / Totally Rude Service 8/30/2007

I work around the corner and will splurge ($ & calories) every now and again for the breakfast bagel (w/ capers!) and a coffee from Say Cheese. As of recent though I find myself cruising right by and hitting up Trader Joes or Gelsons simply due to the rude service I get each and every time I go to Say Cheese. I hate to point fingers, but I read in another review below a mention of the ""big black guy""- yes that's usually who I get too and he is the rudest of the rude. I've pretty much stopped going due to the fact the employees make you feel bad about ordering food, it's bizarre. All that put aside it's a really nice place w/ a great cheese selection! Pros: Yummy cheese selection Cons: Unhappy employee(s) more

Best Lunch 6/25/2007

I have been going to Say Cheese for 10 years. love love love the sandwiches. \r one of the best things that I have gotten for a party is the Cheese Plater, my guest were blown away by it more

Worst Customer Service Ever. 6/16/2007

Im not one to write reviews about resaurants....But I have had a consistant string of bad experiences here. Almost every waiter Ive ever had has been so rude. There always out of stuff, and even at there cheese shop next door, the people are rude especially the main Big Black guy....\r This place is ridiculous...the owner should come in and do some damage control because I hate to hate this place now. I live in the neighborhood and have had it with there service! Pros: the sandwiches are great. Cons: the service is terrible. more

Best coffee on the east side 3/21/2007

I love Say Cheese for it's location, the delicious vegetarian sandwich options and the browsing in the little shop next to the restaurant but most of all I love it for the coffee. Perfectly mixed espresso and the regular coffee is also wonderful. more

worth the price 3/16/2007

i love say cheese, even if it's pricy. i like the food, but the cheeses than other foods in the store side are wonderful! i was buying cheese to give to some friends as a gift and the guy who helped me was sooo nice and friendly and PATIENT! he helped me choose a nice selection and let me sample quite a few things before we decided on what to buy. i didn't get the most expensive things, but he gave me affordable alternatives, and truthfully, everything is great, so it doesn't matter if it's the least expensive thing there. you can't go wrong w/ say cheese! they will also give you advice on how to store the cheese and how to serve it. Pros: great products, great knowledgeable staff, clean Cons: pricey but worth it, parking more

who knew something so stinky could be so good!!! 11/30/2006

Amazing Cheese. It is worth the drive to have such a nice staff help me learn about the different cheeses. \r I am a 1 stop shopper, and love that they have plenty of other goodies to go along with the selection of the week. \r Thanks for all your help!!!!! more

Sandwiches (and cheese) to die for 1/16/2006

My teenage son and I had lunch at Say Cheese. I have never before heard him rave about a sandwich until he had their portobello mushroom with blue cheese and chicken. In fact, I couldn't believe he ordered it. I had the tuna with horseradish and it was one of the best sandwiches I have ever eaten. The service couldn't have been better in the restaurant and in the shop where they offer samples of all kinds of incredible cheeses. more


After living in Paris for 4 years and finding this gem in my neighborhood, what luck! Best caffe latte I've found. The cheese selections and deserts are magnifique! The ""Barcelona"" sandwich is as close a reminder to my trip to Spain with procuitto, capers, and manchega cheese on rosemary bread. YUM! They have a great variety of food items to prepare at home. A must visit for brunch with great atmosphere and decor. Pros: Reasonable, Delicious everytime, Good parking for area more

Euro-like Cafe/Deli with American Heart 2/27/2004

This cafe/deli is similar to stores found all over Italy and France. It is where you are transported to marvelous places just looking at the labels and the smells, where you find the gourmet goods without paying an arm and a leg, and most of all, where you experience a little town American spirit with a touch of Europe. more

My new favorite place...... 6/27/2002

I found this place recently when helping my daughter move. We stopped for brunch so we would be fortified for the day and our wish was fulfilled. The turkey sandwich is actually fresh sliced turkey. It came with a side salad the was filling in itself. I really can't wait to go back and try other items on the menu. And to my daughter's delight there is a bakery/cheese store that is part of the cafe. They have fresh bread and rolls and lots of choices of different cheeses and other condiments. more

Best Sammy's 5/20/2002

California Melt and Cold Turkey are quite tasty. Under new management, so the service which used to suck worse than any place around has gotten MUCH better. more
