Kaiwaka Cheese Shop

Fine crafted cheeses

kaiwaka Cheese2 Driving north from Auckland, you can’t miss the iconic Kaiwaka Cheese Shop.

Founded originally by Dutch immigrants, there’s still an emphasis on European and Dutch cheese with gouda still one of the overall favourites. However, the store stocks a range of over fifty cheeses to give everyone something to choose from. Focusing on Dutch varieties aside from gouda, take your pick from Emmental, Harvati, Maasdam, Leerdam, and Dutch goats cheese. You’ll also find some other Dutch imported goodies tucked away there as well; good if you’re feeling a little homesick.

Several blue cheese brands and sheep cheese brands are also featured with other local artisan and imported cheese suppliers. Local artisans include Whitestone, Meyer gouda, Matatoki, Karikaas and Mahoe.

The store prides itself on its organic leanings and includes other organic products such as oils, vinegars, drinks and dried food products.

Cheese is cut to order from the wheel the old fashioned way and those requiring organic or vegetarian cheese are easily satisfied.
