The Magnolia Cheese Co., a cheese shop-cum-cafe that dares to offer delicate portions and take-your-time service, has thrown down a gauntlet to Fort Worth diners: Slow down, sip, notice the fresh flavors, savor each morsel.

Northern wants to feature lots of local foods and create everything from scratch in the glassed-in kitchen.The cut-to-order cheeses are the heart of the business, and just about everything on the menu grows from that theme. Sandwiches, salads, soups, even desserts feature cheeses (an apple-and-cheddar bread pudding, for instance).”
