Did you know

is Wisconsin's oldest cheese store?


Baumgartners will be closed January 27, 28, and 29

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.
