Still Good after all these years

This was a great cheese spot, 40 years ago, and still is, even though there are many more options available today. Excellent variety, great location, try it for take out for lunch. You can not go wrong.

A lovely find in the heart of Concord Center! An amazing assortment of cheeses - some extremely hard to find elsewhere. Lot of crackers, chocolates, sauces and more. Nice wine selection and a decent deli area. You must try Phil's Fabulous sandwich. VERY friendly and helpful staff.

Superb selection of cheeses. Expert assistance at the counter. If you can give them even one adjective describing what you want, they step up and provide. You taste before you buy. They provide history/provenance, and most importantly, labels on your purchase so you remember where and what. The wine department is very good. Some interesting and inexpensive wines are stocked....

A cheese lover's dream. Almost any kind of cheese you can imagine with great wine pairings. Packaged foods from Europe - the UK, France, etc., which is perfect for those things you miss - like Marmite:-) Not a restaurant in the normal sense although they do great take out salads and there is a small space to 'eat in' or...

This isn't a restaurant - but it does have almost anything you need for a great meal: wonderful sandwiches and a good deli counter, a super cheese counter with a staff that understood what we were looking for (try a taste of the truffle cheese - it is mind-blowing!). The wine selection is also impressive. Plan to spend time just... More

A side visit in downtown Concord to the Cheese shop offered a free tasting of cheese and wine. Great selection of both! Funn stop with friends. Lunch looked great (take out) but we had just finished a late breakfast. too bad for us.

Great boutique in a town with everything. Good selection of European and American homestead cheeses. Attractive displays, samples, but a budget buster!

The cheeses at this shop are amazing and more importantly the staff has so much knowledge of what they have that they always find the right cheese for the right occasion. The deli has terrific sandwiches and my favorite is the italian sandwich on the ciabetta bread. It is so good you would think you are in little Italy.
