We are open!
We are open for outdoor and limited indoor seating. We have our tables spaced apart from one another to protect our guests and staff. We ask that customers wear face coverings when moving about inside, purchasing cheese, or using the restroom but not while seated at their table. Our staff will be wearing face coverings at all times to protect our valued customers. As always, we thank you for your continued support while we navigate these trying times.
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.
