Stopped in to purchase some cheese that went with our wine. The owner was very good and let us sample several cheeses. Needles to say we purchased several items from this store. Enjoyable and a pleasant place.

Fantastic store, the owner put together a cheese platter for us at the end of his day. It was fantastic, he had Ontario cheese as well as Canadian and International Cheeses, something for everyone.
