If you are in the area and want cheese or cured meat, stop by this place. The staff are very friendly and they have a great selection of cheeses which they will slice for you fresh.

We come to NOTL once every year and this is our first stop! We always come here and buy their cheese and bread, and head to the park for a relaxing lunch. Their selection is amazing, great service, and so yummy!!

Stopped in to purchase some cheese that went with our wine. The owner was very good and let us sample several cheeses. Needles to say we purchased several items from this store. Enjoyable and a pleasant place.
