Has wild boar, and lots of animals that I would never eat. Yuck! The selection of cheeses and crackers is excellent and the owner is a very nice man. It is only for people with very eclectic tastes.More

Wonderful little shops filled with exotic meats and cheeses. Definitely a must check out when in town. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The cheese assortment is very nice. They carry most things you wouldn't find in a normal grocery store. Quite the gem.
