About us

The Cheese Shop's long history in La Jolla Shores has seen many customers grow from kids into parents. Established in 1972 by John and Dorothy Schutz, the shop began as purveyors of imported cheese and fine foods from all over the world. Over the years, different products have been added, and roasting meats and baking cookies in the shop – Made By US!!! – demonstrates that common food can be done uncommonly well.
