Welcome to EICHTENS 

Welcome to


Remember that visit to the lake cabin with Mom and Dad and stopping in for a snack at Eichtens?  Now you stop in for breakfast, cheese fondue or a bison burger.  Open daily and only one hour northeast of the Twin Cities.  We pride our self on combining, uniquely flavored favorites, a casual atmosphere and truly friendly service.  

Come on in and sample our artisanal Gouda cheeses.  We have many varities from our orginal Dutch Gouda, Smoked Gouda, Herb Gouda and our famous Tomato Basil Gouda with many more flavors.

Eichtens cheese and sausage gifts can be taken home or ship nationwide year round.     

EICHTENS is on the way to the cabin and I stop every time!”
