We stop in every time we visit NOTL. The cheese selection is great. Try the smoked Applewood from England. We haven't found a cheese in the shop that we didn't enjoy. The product is wonderful, as are the staff.

If you are in the area and want cheese or cured meat, stop by this place. The staff are very friendly and they have a great selection of cheeses which they will slice for you fresh.

We come to NOTL once every year and this is our first stop! We always come here and buy their cheese and bread, and head to the park for a relaxing lunch. Their selection is amazing, great service, and so yummy!!
