Had an appointment in the area and stopped in. They have an incredible selection of cheeses, meats, pre-made salads and you can sit or carry out food. It is small but selection is huge and we got some fresh bread and salads and had a fantastic lunch and took some home. Staff was super helpful and friendly. Will be back... More

This is a small yet friendly place to stop for a quick lunch or to purchase from a very large variety of cheeses and deli items. When the weather cooperates it provides outside dining or a place to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee and muffin while watching Lake Foresters go about their day.

As a matter of full disclosure, I must admit I'm not a Cheesehead. I'm partial to cheese-and-crackers and I have a passion for traditional cheeses, nothing fancy or anything I can't pronounce. But a friend persuaded me to accompany him to the Caputo Cheese Market at 231 East Wisconsin Avenue in Lake Forest and I had to be dragged out... More

A gourmet Italian food shop specializing in cheeses. They have a tremendous selection of interesting items. They carry over 50 house-brand spices; 98-cent cannoli, including Nutella and chocolate chip flavours; pizza dough, pizza crusts, or pizzas; more varieties of fresh mozzarella than I can count; and anything else you might expect to find in a niche grocery store. Come to... More

Many cheeses, among other items, at a reasonable price. Their .99 cent coffee is a great bargain and the staff is very helpful.

This place is tucked away in a back street so it was kind of a hidden treasure. The cheese selection is extensive and the paninis are quick and delicious for a casual lunch.

I found this place accidentally. They did not have what I wanted but the manager ordered it for me and they had in available the following day! I love that service as I have asked several markets in the area for this item and they all take my name down but never deliver! I have returned several times.
