Yes it's expensive: an eager shopper can drop $400 easily just out of enthusiasm. And true, the veggies are lackluster and take up half the shop. And ok the wines are overpriced and overhyped but: the cheeses are as good as anywhere in the world,...More

This is a store that, if you can't travel to Europe, makes it unnecessary to do so, at least as far as cheese goes, because nearly all the great varieties--British, French, Italian, Dutch, Swiss, Spanish, and others--are all here, most by the best makers in...More

This is THE best cheese shop I have found in NE. After living in France, it's been so disappointing to not find REAL cheese.... until I discovered Formaggio Kitchen! We look forward to our trips to Cambridge just to visit this boutique!

Nestled amidst beautiful Huron Village, Formaggio Kitchen travels the world to find small producers who communicate their traditions and terroir through their products. Best known for our amazing cheese selection, we also offer a variety of other artisan foods as well as domestic products from New England and beyond. Our beer selection is small, but carefully selected and our wine offering has a distinct slant toward old-world styles and organic or sustainable production methods.
