In a big blow to Santa Barbara’s gourmet aspirations—and obviously to all of us who love quality cheese—C’est Cheese announced that today was its last day. Here’s the message that proprietors Kathryn and Michael Graham posted on social media:
As many off you know, we had a big setback a few years ago during the Thomas Fire and resulting mudslides. Ever since, we have been working to recover from its impact, but the current pandemic has been more than we can overcome. We hung on as long as we could, but unfortunately the time has come for us to close our doors. With a heavy heart, we regret to inform you that Saturday, July 18, was C’est Cheese’s last day in business.
Thank you everyone for all of the support and love that you have given us over the years. We never imagined how fulfilling our lives would become when we decided to open up our little cheese shop 16 years ago, and for that we are forever grateful. It has been a pleasure and an honor to be a part of this community.
To say that the store will be missed is a massive understatement.
