Far beyond your average selection of stinky cheddar, blue, brie and camembert, this store has more variety than you thought existed – and probably ever tasted. There’s cheddar with hints of hazelnut, plenty of soft and medium firm cheese, and the lusciously soft mini wheels of ‘Le Crottin’ goat cheese which will have you convinced it’s secretly a camembert in disguise.

All of this comes with the added benefit of being able to buy weights to your choosing, so you can forgive yourself for buying a small selection of each (or half a kilo of brie, we don’t judge). If you can bear to tear yourself away from the cheese cabinet, the shelves are stocked with caramel sauce, crackers and other French tidbits to accompany your selection. Take it from us though, the quince paste is a must-buy. Complete your antipasti board with a selection of their sausages and preserved meats and prepare to have your friends and family believe that you’ve secretly just come back from holidaying in the south of France.
