WI, Wisconsin Dells – The Cheese Factory Restaurant


Thanks to Erin for emailing this recommendation:

My family currently lives in the Wisconsin Dells area. My son has a severe dairy allergy and living in the dairy state can be complicated. This restaurant (oddly named I’ll admit) is our favorite restaurant because he can eat everything on the menu. Highly recommend it for anyone who has a dairy allergy in the Dells/Madison area. The food is delicious and varied. Staff is friendly. Best of all – no milk allergy worries.

We agree with Erin that the name is very odd, especially since they don’t seem to focus at all on dairy-free cheese alternatives either within their menu. But The Cheese Factory Restaurant is touted as vegan and “non-GMO”, and they have several gluten-free options. They serve up brunch, lunch, dinner, desserts, soda fountain delights, espresso drinks, and decadent-looking dairy-free desserts.

  1. My 18 month old son has a dairy allergy and we were pretty bummed that he and I wouldn’t get to eat out with the family while we were here. We saw this post and decided to give it a try. The restaurant is very quaint and the staff were so friendly and helpful, despite us asking several times “so no dairy, right?” We basically went in and spent $30 on dessert. My son had the chocolate chip cheesecake, I had the Carmel crunch, my husband had the carrot cake (which he said was the best carrot cake he’s ever had), and my daughter had the “happy cupcake”. My husband, daughter, and I have no food allergies (though I’m dairy free from the breastfeeding) and the desserts were amazing, I couldn’t believe they were dairy free. I would absolutely recommend the desserts to anyone with or without dairy allergies.
