A New Cafe From Awesome Thorp Cheesemakers

Katie Robertson

From time to time, we all need a cozy café where we can get a good bite to eat and sip on some warm beverages, especially with these Wisconsin winters. Holland’s Family Cheese – run by Marieke and Rolf Penterman who make award-winning, authentic Dutch cheeses – has just added on to their business and opened up the perfect place: Café DUTCHess. The brand new eatery is attached to their Marieke Gouda Retail Store in Thorp, Wisconsin next to Highway 29. Along with their daily specials, they feature varied menus for both meals and have a kid’s menu as well. Get anything from omelets to French toast in the morning or check out the grilled gouda sandwiches or a cheese plate to sample different flavors of gouda for lunch. All of the different cheeses that they feature in their meals are variations on their highly acclaimed gouda.
