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

We were told this was a place not to be missed. The fresh cheese was delicious and enjoyed a local cheese plate for lunch with fresh berries and crackers, so yummy!!

A lot of options of traditional local cheese, great place to grab different types and have a picnic with wine, or maybe just fill the fridge. They also sell ice cream, including cheese ice cream.

An elegant little spot to savour great cheeses and to learn more about the craft. Samples of the award winning grilled cheeses are available. Lots of parking and right on the main road (west side of the island).

We were told from a friend that we have to try the cheese from this place. So we did. Excellent cheese. Some of the platters looked awesome but we sampled the one that our friend picked out. Very neat little stop.

Dont be put off by this rather small looking shack. I had a sample plater with three locally produce cheeses and three other quebec cheeses. All tasted great! Its well worth a stop here.

This is really just a cheese shop. But we enjoyed our quick stop. They sell sampler plates and we tasted five of their cheeses. All were delicious, especially with the dates they give you. The cheese plate comes with crackers, dates and cranberries. And the...More

The shop featured many cheeses for purchase; the only uniques thing was a $1.50 sample of a grilled cheese. Shop did not 'call my name' but many were purchasing great quantities so must know the quality of the cheese.
