“A great little treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

When you enter this little shop (in the village of Clayton, NY), it doesn't impress. But take the time to browse. They have a great selection of cheeses, spreads, jellies, syrups, spices, candies, and even frozen seafood and frozen local meats.

If you're a foodie or even a semi-foodie, the local grocery store won't do it for you. But this little shop will definitely add a little skip to your step and a little pizzazz to your table.

“Home of excellent cheese and more!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

This store, one of a handful in Clayton, NY, sells excellent cheddar cheese. The cheese is aged and one had a choice of the sharpness of the cheddar depending on the time aged. I prefer the most aged; it "sparks" in your mouth before it melts. Yum. They also have cheese curds and spreads-try the horseradish cheese spread-and some candy and specialty foods. You can take it home yourself or have it shipped but the cheese is great.
