Cheese, cheese and more cheese! St James Cheese Company New Orleans LA specializes in cheese from all over the world.
The Cheesy Mission
As soon as you walk in, you’ll notice the exposed brick walls, large seating area and cheese selections sitting out to browse at your leisure. Richard Sutton, Owner of St James Cheese Company, talked a little bit about the mission of St James Cheese Company.
“We have cheese from all over the world and about 250 to 300 different varieties,” he says. “We want to make it the kind of place that people that know nothing about cheese can come and try it out. It’s kind of like going to an ice cream shop, but with cheese.”
And if you want some guidance, the team at St James Cheese Company will gladly help you put together a cheese plate that is made specifically for you.
But if you ask us locals in New Orleans, St James Cheese Company is also one of the hotspots for breakfast and lunch in the Warehouse District. And since you’re in the Warehouse District, there are some unique items on the menu that are exclusive to the Warehouse District.
The Croque Monster, as the name suggests, is a monstrous, double-decker ham and cheese sandwich that is broiled and served on Texas toast–we highly recommend using a fork and knife to tackle this gooey sandwich. For a little extra, you can “Madame” your Croque Monster and add an egg on top.
If you’re looking for a more sophisticated and traditional experience, the Ploughman’s Lunch is an English classic. The Ploughman’s Lunch features farmhouse Cheddar, Stilton and goat’s cheeses, house-made pork pie or pate, small green salad and hearty bread.
They also offer a carryout menu with a yummy variety of hot or cold sandwiches and salads. Their boxed lunches (with a sandwich, chips or pasta salad, and house-baked cookie or fruit) are perfect to grab on the way out of town to enjoy in the car or plane.
If you want to bring yummy snacks home or enjoy a cheese plate in your room, they sell a wide variety of delicious deli items including cheese, charcuterie, gourmet mustards and sauces, honey, pickles, and lots more!
