SAN FRANCISCO | Cowgirl Creamery Cheese Shop is a full-service, European-style cheese shop featuring Cowgirl Creamery cheeses alongside the finest artisan and farmstead selections from America and Europe.

For the uninitiated, Cowgirl Creamery is the creation of friends Sue Conley and Peggy Smith who took a hippie trip to San Francisco in 1976 and established careers in some of San Francisco’s most famous kitchens. By the early 1990s they were ready for a new challenge and moved up to Point Reyes Station, about an hour north of San Francisco. They launched a company, Tomales Bay Foods, to help connect local farmers and producers to the Bay Area’s chefs. Their first location featured a small cheese making room, and they decided to use milk from neighboring Straus Family Creamery to make their own cheeses.

Two decades and several awards later, the Cowgirl Creamery name is synonymous with fantastic artisan cheese, and the Ferry Building Cheese Shop is one of the best places to find the full range of cheeses. You can sample some of the cheeses in store and talk to the knowledgeable staff about all things cheese. If all of that talk of cheese makes you hungry, head next door to the Cowgirl Creamery Sidekick Cafe, where you can buy a selection of cheese and milk based treats to enjoy right there.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
