Beecher's was first launched in 2003 in Seattle by this cheese monger and food purist Kurt Beechers Dammeier. Their food goes by the mantra of all pure-all natural, full flavored food handcrafted in traditional ways using the best possible ingredients. The place is a cheese factory (you can see through a huge glass window how they make their fresh cheese), a retail store (they sell their cheese, books, etc) and a restaurant.
Their chairs are huge milk cans which I found really cute! You can watch their cheese-making from this window.
For a cheese lover like me, this was heaven! :)
Unfortunately we had a matinee play to catch that day so I didn't have the luxury to dine there. I just got everything take out. This was what inside our big brown bag;
World's Best Mac & Cheese (16 oz) - $ 9.25
Penne cooked al dente with oozing, rich (in flavor and texture - it's not the smooth kind of white cheesy sauce) grainy and full-flavored cheese - I believe it's gruyere and their famous cheddar cheese.

I also got the tomato soup which complimented my sandwich really well (sorry I wasn't able to take a pic of that. It was real comfort food!
Say cheeeeeeese! :)
