About Us

Pastoral Artisan Cheese, Bread & Wine, a venture of Pastoral Enterprises, LLC, is a European-inspired neighborhood cheese, specialty food and wine shop offering the highest quality, cut-to-order domestic and international specialty cheeses, freshly baked breads, perfectly chosen accompaniments and small production wines, along with hand-crafted, cheese loving beers.

Over time we have become known for our unique and delicious sandwiches, salads, artisan catering trays and beautiful gift baskets, all using the highest quality ingredients we sell in our store. Pastoral also provides cheese to some of Chicago's finest restaurants for their cheese plates and culinary creations.

We first opened our doors in August of 2004 in Chicago's East Lakeview neighborhood and subsequently opened our second location on Lake Street in Chicago's bustling Loop in 2007. Pastoral is proud to have opened our most recent location in the new Chicago French Market in the West Loop; the first project of its kind in the Windy City. With our commitment to providing the highest level of service and education to our customers, we strive to make shopping for and consuming these artisan goods enlightening, approachable, fun and delicious!
