This shop, situated just off the square in the old town, belongs to one of the Michelin restuarants. Perhaps not surprising therefore that it stocks a wide rang of interesting cheeses. Their rang of wines was less interesting but good enough. Service was absolutely charming,...More

Co-owned by the excellent, highly rated nearby Le Channel restaurant. Great range of cheese and limited, expensive range of French wines. You can park right outside the shop free for 15 minutes. Watch out for the lunch 'hour' though, which runs from 1230 to 1500!

An excellent place to buy good wine and cheese at reasonable prices. The staff are helpful and friendly. We haven't drank the wine yet, but the cheese was amazing.

We visited this shop in July 2013. I need of parking advice we asked the nice ladies behind the counter for help, and so did. A wonderful shop if you are interested in quality cheese, wine, liquor and super service.

If you're in Calais then definitely add this place to your "must visit" list. The staff are great, speak good English but also encourage you to "have a go" with your French. The cheeses are superb (not tried the wine!), and priced reasonably too. There's...More

The attention you receive from the owner, Eirlys, and the other staff is excellent. The shop provides cheese to some local restaurants. During our stay at one of these restaurants we sampled some superb cheeses. We asked where the cheese was purchased and visited the...More
