Marin Petit Breakfast Cheese


For over 155 years this cheese has not only filled a need for healthy breakfast protein, but continues to be a favorite of both locals and visitors alike. Petite Breakfast follows the same cheesemaking process as our other brie style cheeses, but skips the aging room, making it a fresh brie without the white bloomy rind you traditionally see on this style of cheese. Sold fresh and young, it has a tangy flavor and a slightly springy texture, reminiscent of creamy cheese curds. Petite Breakfast Brie is the little cheese with the big history. It started as a protein filled breakfast alternative for failed gold miners turned dock workers in the late 1800s. As the Gold Rush came to an end and the San Francisco Bay had a sudden increase in population, there were not enough eggs to meet the need for a hearty morning meal for laborers to start their day. Our founder, Jefferson Thompson saw the need and created a breakfast cheese that is still true to its name but is now enjoyed any time of day!
