My husband and I stopped in the shop to get some local artisanal cheese to take on a picnic by the river. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. They had so many varieties of local cheeses as well as Ontario and imported cheese. They also had prosciutto and other salamis from a local farmer. Other items you might need for a picnic were also provided in the store: olives, olive oil, crackers, bread, ,drinks, desserts. We got what we needed and a bottle of local wine and headed out for a nice picnic by the river.

I first started going to the cheese shop when I attended a session on olive oils and balsamic vinegars. It was such an enjoyable afternoon. I am a big convert to dipping breads in these liquid gems for the palate!

The other day I went in to get a very nice cheese for a very special occasion. I talked with the Coleen and got her recommendation of a salted BC cheddar... oh it was better than ice cream. Needless to say, I was the star of the party when they tasted the cheese!

What a little treasure to have such a specialty shop in our town, and to get the great service each and every time I go!

We had an excellent experience with this wonderful cheese shop, just off the main drag in NOTL. They helped us pick out some great choices of cheese, meat and bread, along with some fruits and nuts. The staff was very knowledgeable, and the selection was quite good, with many harder to find Quebec and maritime province cheeses. Highly recommend if staying at one of the nearby hotels as an alternative "grab-and-go" dinner. The Tiger Blue was the pick of the bunch. We will be back again!!!

Love this little place.. great place to stop and pick up some Cheese and other items for a quick snack for a picnic. Love having this place here.. the staff is very helpful and you can even taste the cheese before buying it. I love this place and always stop in when we are here as everything is so fresh and the staff is great. I suggest stopping here to pick up a light snack and enjoy with friends or your honey for a little date.
