Rubiner's has a good selection of cheeses; they allow you to have samples before buying; some of the cheese infers really know their stuff, others seem to be winging it, and the service sometimes seems grudging and surly. However,these points are mostly ignorable because: CHEESE!

The thing that attracted us at first was the building itself. It looked like an old bank. I'm so happy we stumbled across this cheese shop. Not only do they have free cheese samples to try, but they are all amazing! I wish I lived...More

I've lived in this area for 16 years, so I got in the habit of going to Rubiner's from time to time for cheese or whatever. The quality is high, but the prices are close to shocking, easily rivaling the highest NYC ones. Still, I...More

We go straight to Rubiner's upon arriving in GB. This has been our routine forever because there's nowhere better to get cheese and charcuterie plus an amazing array of unique packaged goods. Rubiner's cheese assortment rivals what you'll find at Murray's in New York. But...More
