We often visited the restaurant out front (prior to it closing) and would always stop in to pick up some new cheeses. Can't go wrong with the selection and help that we received from the staff.

This place is really a feast for both your eyes and appetite. Worth the visit for just the visuals. Staff is friendly, inviting and what is really key in a specialty shop, extremely knowledgeable. They walked us through creating a specialty meat and cheese plate for 25. They took several minutes to do so, educating us along the way. They... More

We bought Canadian cheeses, very nice, and the employee very knowledgeable. Not cheap, but in Canada cheeses are expensive.

I can't tell you how wonderful this little shop is. If you present receipt from Farm restaurant you get 10% off. We were able to try delicate little morsels and make our cheese selections. There is something called a grilled cheese bar with oooeeey gooeey to die for grilled cheese sandwiches. Counting down the days till I return.

Stopping at Janice Beaton is a must every time we are in Calgary and this trip was no exception. We picked up some wonderful fresh cheeses for Thanksgiving appetizers. All of the cheese is extremely fresh and so tasteful. The people working at JB also know their stuff. Tell them what you are serving and they can make suggestions on... More

This is a great cheese shop with an amazing selection. Staff are knowledgeable. If you want to try, then just ask. The place is not inexpensive but it is hard to find quality, knowledge and selection together.

Besides being the finest purveyor of cheese and charcuterie in Calgary, the shop also features local artisans'products and specialities. I immediately went there for help when my son asked me, the out of towner from Toronto, to provide a bridal and a groomsmen lunch.

We purchased a couple of cheeses for Wine Time and they were yummy. Several days later we needed a quick lunch and I suggested going back to JBFC for grilled cheese... More

We have shopped here on many occasions and have always been more than satisfied. Selection is impressive, quality and service very good too. This weekend we received a beautifully arranged gift basket of delightful morsels from this place, from a family member.
