We need some grated Parmesan which they did for my wife while she waited. We also got some vodka smoked salmon and a hot salami to take back for appetizers. Everything was excellent and the owners/workers were most pleasant!

We stop in every time we visit NOTL. The cheese selection is great. Try the smoked Applewood from England. We haven't found a cheese in the shop that we didn't enjoy. The product is wonderful, as are the staff.

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.
