Taste of Tuesday: The Cheese Shanty

Since Leelanau is home to so many great restaurants, Leelanau.com would like to start a monthly feature or review of the local restaurants. Since the Leelanau.com staff is too busy during the summer to actually enjoy dining out, we thought we’d start with the place where we probably eat at the most this time of year….The Cheese Shanty in Fishtown. We eat here not only out of convenience, as our office is walking distance, but also for the same reason everyone else does…..the highly revered pretzel bread.

In mid April, as spring fever hits Leelanau, one of the main questions asked is: When is the Cheese Shanty going to open for the season?  The Cheese Shanty frenzy continues all summer, as tourists and locals alike flock there for such favorites at the North Shore or the Lake Street.  With their unique combination and flexibly to build your own sandwich, The Cheese Shanty has something for everyone.

But The Cheese Shanty isn’t just about the sandwiches, they offer award winning Leelanau wines, a large selection of beer, local products, and over 60 imported cheeses!  Quick tip before visiting:  Check out their menu online, then call ahead to place your order!  And don’t forget your punch card!
