Very knowledgeable if you are looking to create a cheese board. This is the best place to go in KC. They also have wine in the plaza location to complete your cheese and wine snack. Grab some pairings and crackers while you are there.

I don't even like cheese that much, but I always seem to find at least a couple of cheeses that I like at this place. There are a lot of other wonderful food items in this store as well.
