Welcome to C'est Cheese!

We are a small, family-run cheese shop and café in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara. Founded in December of 2003, our mission is to provide excellent, friendly, personal service alongside the best cheeses, wines, and gourmet foods.


About Our Shop

We stock scores of cheeses from around the world, and—since man cannot live on cheese alone—over two dozen varieties of cured meats, wines specially selected to pair with food, and loads delicious goodies that go far beyond just crackers.

From supplying cheeses and meats to Santa Barbara’s best restaurants, to providing beautiful cheese platters and reception catering, C’est Cheese is a full-service specialty food store. We also offer a daily breakfast and lunch menu and prepared foods you can enjoy in our new café, or on the go.
