My first visit and I was most impressed. A small deli, packed with interesting goodies. Tremendous range of cheese much of which is cut to order. Spices, sauces and more - so glad I found this deli.

Great selection of cheeses, condiments and other nibbles. Impossible to browse without purchasing. Helpful staff (? owners) who really seemed to know their stuff. Recently returned from Amsterdam, it was great to see such a big selection of cheeses. Beautifully presented shop
