Did you know

is Wisconsin's oldest cheese store?

Baumgartner's

We are open!

Due to the increased Covid activity in Wisconsin and our surrounding area, we have decided to close our indoor dining room for the time being. We will still have our outdoor tables available, and our cheese sales area will be open inside. We will ask customers to wear masks when entering the building to buy cheese, use the restroom, or get food to carry out. This is a very hard decision to make, but we always want to make sure that both our customers and staff are safe! We hope to be fully reopened again as soon as safely possible. Thank you for your understanding!

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.
