“Beautiful old fromagerie in the centre of Lille”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

This is a fantastic fromagerie in the centre of Lille with a very large selection of cheeses! It's a small shop with a VERY pungeant smell - if you don't like the smell of cheese, do not go in! I happen to love it and happily perused the selection!

I was after some of the famous Lille cheese, Mariolles, known for it's incredible stink! The helpful and friendly lady behind the counter allowed me to try and that was it SOLD!

There are also some beautiful cheese gifts in the window which if I've have been able to transport them properly I would have bought!!

FYI I wrapped the Mariolles in 2 plastic carrier bags and then in 2 chiller bags in the boot of the car and the car stank for 2 weeks...it's now in foil, 2 carriers, air tight lockable container in another carrier bag at the back of the fridge...the fridge stinks...love it :)

“Very excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

This fromagerie is well worth a visit. If you are in Boulogne it is worth going ut of your way for. Informed staff and a vast selection of qualiy cheese in an attractive shop. Try a few samples and you will not be disappointed.

Already looking forward to our next visit.
