Did you know

is Wisconsin's oldest cheese store?


After a time of being open for take out and delivery, we’ve decided to close indefinitely, and re-open as soon it is safe to do so. We truly appreciate the support we've received during this time, but we have decided that we would rather not risk contributing to the further spread of this terrible disease. We hope that we can all come together to defeat this virus and get back to life as soon as possible! From all of us at Baumgartner’s, we wish you all safety, sanity, and good health during this very scary and stressful time!

Selling Wisconsin's Best Cheese Since 1931

Featuring some of Wisconsin's finest cheese, imported cheese, specialty foods, and much more, Baumgartner's Cheese Store & Tavern, opened in 1931, is Wisconsin's oldest cheese store! In addition to our popular retail store, you can enjoy great food and locally brewed beers at our adjoining tavern! We are conveniently located in the quaint Swiss community of Monroe, a rich cheese producing area in southern Wisconsin. We can be reached in an hour or less from Rockford, Janesville, Madison and Dubuque, Iowa. Baumgartner's features locally brewed beers. They are a fine complement to the delicious cheese you will find here. Baumgartner's is a center of activity all the time but especially during Cheese Days, a colorful festival held the third weekend of September during even-numbered years.
