This is the only place in the neighborhood that sells good cheese and cured meats (as well as other necessities, like jams or crackers and prepared foods). So if you are hosting a fancy party or something, you need to come here to pick up supplies. This place also happens to be the only place I have seen in Boston to make pimento cheese, which I love. The wine selection is small relative to specialty wine shops, but it is a very well curated selection.

Great for cheese, prepared foods, dry pastas and the like. Really a beautiful little shop. If you are in the neighborhood, it is worth a stop in.

We arrived just as the busy rush hour crowd was looking for something pick up for dinner. The girl that worked with us was very knowledgeable and worked with our 'we don't really know what we want' mindset. While we provided her with some very basic ideas, she picked out samples for us to try. We worked though a list of four cheeses and one meat item that will provide a great snack later this week. She took the time with us without getting caught up in all of the other people waiting to be helped. In fact more staff quickly appeared to make everyone feel that their business was important.

I've been searching for a decent cut of smoked turkey for sometime now, this is something that you just can't buy on supermarkets. This place offer perfect cuts of different kinds of premium meats. The selection of cheeses are awesome too. Great place to go.
