We offer a large selection of mostly Canadian cheeses with several international favourites also available, local charcuterie, Boulart breads, crackers and cheese related products. Now offering a sensory tasting experience in our newly decorated downstairs tasting room.

The two ladies working while we were there were very helpful. They provided us with plenty of samples to try. They were also helpful in helping us non-metric users figure out how much cheese we wanted to purchase. I'm not much of a cheese lover, but my husband and his brother are, and they had a good time sampling the... More

We usually stop at Cheese Secrets when we are in NOTL. We sometimes buy cheese and other times we don't but we are always treated to samples and nice service. This time we tried 3 cheeses and settled on a very nice maple cheddar cheese and a baguette. When paired together later that day they were perfect. Cheese Secrets is... More

Stopped in on September 16 just as they opened. The lady behind the cheese counter is wonderful. She helped us put together a delicious picnic cheese and meat assortment.The fresh baked bread.......yummy. Pair the picnic with some wine you pick up while cycling the area!!!! Wonderful way to enjoy the day in NOTL.

This little hidden shop (behind the main shops on Main St) holds wonderful some Canadian cheeses and work staff. They really know their cheese and what the customers are looking for. My husband always comes in for their cheese curds, which being so popular and sometimes sold out. We come back every year. Just wonderful place and people.

We visit NOTL every year and make sure we do lunch here. We buy a tomato from the grocery store, head there and buy our favourite cheeses and some bread. They make sandwiches for us. Soooo good. We also just tried something called caramelized onion cheddar cheese, which was absolutely phenomenal.

Amazing little store to buy many types of cheese and some charcuterie. A bit hidden but worth to look for it. Very friendly staff.

We have always enjoyed visiting Cheese Secrets in Niagara on the lake. The store is packed with fab cheeses, Canadian and international. They also make up great platters that always impress!

We head to NOTL for 1 of 3 reasons usually. We have company that needs to see the Falls, or we need wine, or we need cheese. Mostly, we need cheese. Since we are lucky enough to only be an hour away, every special occasion and the odd Tuesday require a visit to Cheese Secrets and Eugene and Colleen! They... More

We drove out to NOTL on a whim when we went away for an overnight trip to Niagara falls. From the earlier reviews I read I thought it was bigger, but what they had was pretty decent. I couldn't buy everything I wanted though. Can't bring some things back to US from Canada. Very nice woman working there. Hidden away... More
