We stopped here on two different day trip loops around the island. On the first stop we tried the grilled cheese, which was very good. We had a slight language issue and did not actually receive what we thought we had ordered, but we still...More

My friends, wife and I visited this place this morning to buy some squeeky cheese. It was fresh and really good! Staff was very friendly and explained to us the process of making cheese. I believe this is off season because there was not much...More

Make a stop here to taste the first cheese produced in North America. Very quaint and clean. Wish they could have given tours of the processing plant but the folks were friendly and there is a good selection of items to purchase. Worth a stop

Try the iced cheese because it is tasty and yummy! We had never had that before and it is similar to icecream/sherbert. The fried cheese was also a pleasant surprise. We bought some table cheese and crackers which we enjoyed later on that afternoon. Staff...More

Great place to try cheese local to Ile d'Orleans and the Quebec region. The shop makes two types of cheese that were prevalent during the frontier period of Nouvelle France. One of those, the roasted / grilled cheese, which is similar to Haloumi, was fantastic...More
