A must-visit to appreciate Paul, a true Cheesemonger of 50 years, and staff . Exceptional service, knowledgeable and super friendly…. I had a very special cheese I thought I could only get in Italy. Paul knew exactly what is was and had it in his store. Love this place .Will be back for sure. Thank you for the old fashion customer service that was above and beyond.

Stopped in for the first time today upon the recommendation of a friend and wasn’t disappointed. Amazing selection of world class cheeses and the owner and staff are knowledgeable and super friendly. I’ll be back. Often.

Love this place. They are very friendly and knowledgeable. We were able to taste any of the cheeses before we bought them. Only problem is we wish they were closer to us but they are worth the 1 1/4 hour drive. We are never disappointed when we go there.
-Chris Kreckel

We were leisurely driving through the area and stopped because we had heard glowing reports and had tasted the cheese before. They were very friendly, let us taste multiple cheeses and we left with cheese, fresh baguettes, bread and crackers! Highly recommend!
-Roberta Caristo White

What a wonderful shop. The cheeses are unlike any you would find in a grocery store. The staff is absolutely phenomenal. Well worth the fifty minute drive I make to feed my cheese addiction.

-Totally unassuming little shop with the friendliest people. Very knowledgeable about pairings, ideas for cooking and just general yumminess. Worth the trip from Farmington.

-Chef Paul

This place is awesome. Stop in but don’t be in a rush. Take the time to see what’s all there. Bread, cheese and hard meats; it’s really good.

What a great selection of imported cheese! I just returned from a trip to Italy and was craving some of the excellent cheese I had overseas. I found you through Ink magazine and was not disappointed with the choices I made. Thank you for the complimentary samples in an effort find my favorites! I will be back soon!!
