The store offers a wide selection of cheese in several flavors and ingredients. They do also have spicy cheese for chilly lovers. It is good to visit the store if you like cheese.

Henry Willig has the monopoly in cheese shops in Amsterdam under a variety of guises and names. So, the same cheese in different packaging, mass produced for tourists. Go find an independent producer !
