Incredible little cheese and wine store. They have a huge selection and are happy to give you a sample of anything you want. We ended up buying 7 cheeses. All I need now is a baguette and I’ll be very happy.

Stopped by to sample a cheese or two and wound up sampling at least 20 different types. Very knowledgeable and friendly. No tip jar was present but tipped the guy for putting in the extra effort to find me the perfect cheese.
