I found this cheese shop by chance some years ago. A great place for cheese lovers! Lots of selection with well trained knowledgeable staff.
Go at Christmas when they serve you mulled wine while you wait to be served.
Well worth anyones time

What's not to love about a 300-year-old cheese shop? I walk in and ask for things that they know would never get past the US inspectors. Always some lovely finds along with a wonderfully knowledgeable staff.

this place has an amazing selection of cheese but more importantly is the only place we can find brie du melun...brie with a serious kick....way way better than brie du meaux. Its got loads of cheesees- blues/goats everything. Also loads of sidessuch as chutneys and crackers and cheese equipment. It can get very busy especially at Christmas- i queued for an hour but it was well worth it. The mont d'or cheese is also gorgeous and get be eten with a spoon. They also gave us port to keep us happy in the queue. Really great and you can try before u buy think
