Owner description: Perfect shop for the cheese lovers. Many delicious varieties and an amazing atmosphere makes this gem a must-see.
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Here you can find a large selection of French cheeses, neatly arranged and displayed, and... yes, you can even buy some, it is not a museum even if you will be forgiven for thinking so...

These cheeses are precious little gems (priced accordingly), this is not a place to stock up, but rather to explore, and then pick and bring home some unusual varieties to taste (with the risk of becoming addicted to... you have been warned). I am a cheese lover (and very experienced...), I did buy a few pieces and enjoyed them greatly at home, I can ensure you they were of the highest quality.
Of course, as pointed out by some, in some cases you may be able to find the same cheese somewhere else at better prices, but it is normal to pay more for the convenience of having a wide selection of products available at a single place.

Two pieces of practical advice: first, the small shop can be crowded and confusing, do not expect the personnel to notice you - they are not being rude, this is France, just look around yourself and understand when is your opportunitiy to step up and ask for help, they are helpful and knowledgeable.
Second, you can ask for your products to be vacuum packed, it is very convenient for carrying them with you, and will prevent the smell to spread to unwanted parts of your baggage. The package can be carried on a plane in your checked baggage, but beware: most soft cheeses are classified as "liquids" by airport security, and will accordingly be removed from you if you try to carry them in your cabin luggage (unless they are really small pieces). I am still grieving a nice piece of brie... don't make my mistake.

The selection of cheese is mind blowing, fortunately there are a host of expert Fromagiers (not actually what they are called) who can tell you about the cheese, give you a sample and recommend what to have it with. The way the store works is you select a cheese with one of the Fromagiers who then measures out your desired quantity, wraps it and gives you a barcode sticker that assists you at check out. Not doing this leaves you standing around like a lost sheep trying to understand why the nice lady won't scan your Brie. We went to the store on Blvd Saint Germain, which is a small store but right next artisan bakers, small goods producers and wine merchants. All you need, really. If you love cheese, this is the place.

A baker, a wine vendor and a cheese shop next door to each other and a stone's throw from Notre Dame. In the latter, as good a selection of cheese as you'll come across, with friendly, informed staff speaking good English. The Brie de Melun has spoiled me for life. As for the British supermarket stuff...well, from now on it's reserved for unwelcome guests only...

No doubt the cheese here is just stunning ... my own favourite is their vieux comte .. where you will pay about 5 euro for a small enough piece ... but it is truly amazing ... but then less than 2 for a slice of brie . .. my only advice is to either have some idea of what type of cheese you are looking for to narrow it down a bit as it can be a bit overwhelming ... and the staff know their cheese inside out .... or else to do a recce trip before hand and have some tasters ....
they also vacuum pack so you can bring some home ....

Wonderful choice and they take credit cards! Will let you try before you buy! Our hotel put the cheese into fridge which we collected before going to airport.
