I could've stayed longer if I had the time. There were a lot of cheese to taste, flavours to try and discover. The staff were amazing and knowledgeable. Too bad, I didn't get to try the wines. Perhaps a reason for me to come back.

If there is one place to be sure to stop and taste the products, it's the Cheese Shop in the Carmel Plaza. They provide small samples of the cheeses they offer -- and they offer many different kinds. The atmosphere is friendly and staff are...More
