Popped in on a whim after being intrigued by their sign. The lunch menu is very limited but...my sandwich was incredible! Blue cheese with a caramelized onion! Yum!!! I was driving so didn’t try the wines...next time by bicycle perhaps.

Afternoon visit to Sidney came upon this gem by chance. Friendly knowledgeable staff and very well designed interior. Enjoyed our flights of wine and will return to try the many varieties of cheese and other wines.

Have told many friends about the fondue experience, quite wonderful. Savoury bubbling cheese mixture and so many imaginative "dippers" besides the usual baguette chunks. We will certainly do this again in the new year.

Pros : Very good wine selection . Very good cheese selection . Cons: Overpriced . Cramped space- 3-4 tiny tables. It's like a place you go to to buy cheese and you can get a drink for the road. Service - not very professional (...More
