Tiny shop packed with a wide variety of local and European cheeses. Each recommendation was marvelous (cheddar, goat, and blue). Supplemental items are also available (olives, cured meat, wine).

I opted to have the smaller cheese board, and I'm glad I did. You get a lot for your money. I definitely advise that if you opt to get the bigger one to share it between 2-3 people. Decent amount of bread and oatcakes to...More

We stumbled upon this store while walking around the city. It is a very small store. It carries cheese from other countries. For Americans, please be mindful to read the labels as most of the cheeses are not pasteurized. I took off one star because...More

On approach to the Stockbridge shop today, there was a guy in the Mellis uniform standing outside cutting up some tasty looking offering to attract passers-by on their way to the market opposite. Given it’s a cheese shop, I asked him what he was offering....More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
