While folks do come here for delicious lunches with specialty cheeses, some of us visit Julie and the team simply to buy cheese to enjoy with family and friends.

Julie rocks her dairy passion... More

Stopped in looking for a few cheese gifts for friends and family and I didn't want to leave. The two ladies behind the counter were so patient in answering my million questions. The selection was endless and the customer service was top notch.

I really enjoy stepping into this shop as one is always something special about walking in. Whether it be the intoxicating smells or the array of beautiful cheese. The staff are knowledgeable and suggest items based on what you are familiar with. Thanks for the Ashley suggestion... such a great cheese!!! Everyone needs to go to a proper cheese shop!!
