Good choice of seasonal cheese and good advice & service. As a regular it is nice getting to know different things with each of the different cheese-carer's :)
Also good for a breakfast.
Beside their cheese cave they have a choice of pastries, French foods, coffee and bread, although quality wise the baguette is much better at the Italian next door :)
La fromagerie is quality wise just a step...more
Amazing selection of cheese and wine, fantastic service. Very generous when letting you try the cheese!more
Absolutely incredible. Anyone with an appreciation for cheese will fall in love with this store immediately. The service is fast and the employees are friendly and knowledgeable. Great for getting a variety of worldly cheeses for a party, or just to stop in and get coffee and lunch on a rainy day. 5 stars!more
Brilliant fromagerie.. of the non-cheesy, clean, and fine kind you usually only find on the western European continent. You can enrich your cheese shopping experience with a cup of tea or coffee and a sweet sweet slice of tarte.. They have some rare cheeses,which are otherwise difficult to track down in the cheddar-heavy cheese shelves of London.more
