A fabulous selection of French cheeses from all over the country. Don't be put off if you can't speak French too well. They will be more than happy to let you muddle away in school French without embarrassing you or they will try their English. You don't have to buy a full 'wheel' as they cut all the cheeses to...

We were passing by and noticed this shop and my son and daughter ran to the door only to find it was closed as we were a few minutes late however the lady opened up for us and was extremely welcoming and forgiving of my atrocious French language skills. She advised us on what cheeses to buy after listening to... More

An excellent place to buy good wine and cheese at reasonable prices. The staff are helpful and friendly. We haven't drank the wine yet, but the cheese was amazing.

We visited this shop in July 2013. I need of parking advice we asked the nice ladies behind the counter for help, and so did. A wonderful shop if you are interested in quality cheese, wine, liquor and super service.

If you're in Calais then definitely add this place to your "must visit" list. The staff are great, speak good English but also encourage you to "have a go" with your French. The cheeses are superb (not tried the wine!), and priced reasonably too. There's the traditional soft cheeses here but also a good selection of harder cheeses for those... More

Marvellous selection of cheeses, and deli products. Also good selection of wines. The smell of the cheeses on entering is fabulous. Well worth a visit.

The attention you receive from the owner, Eirlys, and the other staff is excellent. The shop provides cheese to some local restaurants. During our stay at one of these restaurants we sampled some superb cheeses. We asked where the cheese was purchased and visited the shop the next day. The advice on which cheeses frweeze well etc has always been... More
