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 the popular retail store, you can enjoy great food and locally brewed beers at our adjoining tavern! What we did.
They are conveniently located in the quaint Swiss community of Monroe, in a rich cheese producing area in southern Wisconsin. 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.
And a historic picture of Emil Baumgartner in 1931.
