Sleeping Beauty- Wake up!

Sleeping Beauty
Sleeping Beauty Description

Got a hankering for a really good cheese? Look no further than Sleeping Beauty! This organic, raw milk cheese from Cascadia Creamery in Trout Lake, WA is so smooth and sumptuous that you'll want to eat the whole wheel! Last Fall, the fat content in their cows' milk spiked with the onset of colder weather, causing a higher milk fat percentage in their cheese. The beautiful white mold on the rind is slightly musty complementing the sweetness of the interior. Named after a signature landmark of the Cascade range - the legendary "Beauty" that came between the mighty Pahto (Mt. Adams) and Wy'East (Mt. Hood) peaks. Come on in and try this delightful cheese!

Ecuador in our Hearts, $1500 donated

Ecuador Flag

Thanks to the generosity of our guests and our staff, San Juan Island Cheese is donating $1500 to the relief efforts for the victims of the Ecuadorian earthquakes. The money will go to Cruz Roja Ecuatoriana (Ecuadorian Red Cross) which is providing first aid, search and rescue, health teams, hospital units, and more. Our hearts go out to the ongoing struggle to heal the people and towns affected. 

Friday is SPRITZ Night

Friday Night Spritz
April 8th

5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

SPRITZ is the classic Venetian aperitif, traditionally, it’s a mix of prosecco, Aperol (sweeter) or Bitter Campari and Select (bitterer).

For the majority of the Venetians, SPRITZ is an unfailing ritual, served with tapas, giving it the same importance that most international cocktails deserve.

There may be no better way to experience Venice in Friday Harbor than SPRITZ!

Join us Friday, April 8th, to enjoy our version of Spritz and other wines, beers and ciders. Tapas will also be available a la carte.

We look forward to celebrating Spritz with you!

Start your evening here, then join the San Juan Singers at 7:30 pm.

No reservations needed, just stop on by!


Vote First, then Eat Cheese
