Getting to know the Heights - Houston Dairymaids

Happy hump day friends!! 
Today I will be starting a new series on my blog called "Getting to know the Heights". I get a lot of emails about restaurants, shops and things to do in the Heights area and I can't think of a better way to highlight some of my favorite places to visit! 

Today I'm doing a feature on Houston Dairymaids!

One of my favorite places to buy cheese from is Houston Dairymaids. The first time Greg and I ever visited this place was years ago when they first opened their doors. I remember there was a huge line wrapped around the building and I thought all of the cheese was going to be gone before we made it inside. Silly me, there was still a ton!  We thought it was so cool that they had so many local/Texas cheeses!! Even better, you get to sample some cheeses as well as some other yummy snacks! Our favorite cheese we got that day was a cheese made with beer!! YUM! They still sell that cheese today and it's called Redneck Cheddar.

This place is super cute!! 
Everyone who works here knows a lot about cheese and are very friendly! 
Lemon cookie and Chevre (goat cheese) combo! SO GOOD!!

Cheese please!!
Sampling some cheeses!


Don't forget about the wine
Would you like come cheese with your whine? Hahaha, I had to!
