The Loft Cheese Gallery

The interactive cheese bar, which features over 150 cheese selections from both regional and international cheese makers, is a highlight of the dining experience at The Loft.  The hotel’s team of talented fromagiers turn a cheese plate into a work of art and offer such selections as Hoja Santa, a soft goat cheese from Dallas that comes wrapped in sassafras leaves; regional favorites such as Winchester Aged Gouda from nearby Winchester County, California; and more exotic choices such as Zamarano, a rare raw milk Manchego from the sleepy town of Zamora in Spain. 

Each cheese selection is carefully paired with house-made condiments such as Blackberry Port Jelly, Lavender Caramel, Avocado Honey and Nectarine and Cherry Butter, along with crisp crackers and seasonal farmer’s market fruits.
