  • This is a wonderful little shop. They have the patience to walk you through however many cheeses you'd like, and are more than happy to walk you through what you are tasting. Good for either a stop before a picnic, or your weekly plug for all-things-gooey.
  • Amazing store with more types of cheese than I've ever seen. They had great suggestions and let me try many cheeses and directed me to some of the best cheeses I've personally ever had.
