Wandered in as it was my first time to the Big Banana, and the staff at the counter were very friendly and offered samples as the most extreme I'd ventured as far as cheese was Yarlsberg. Walked away with some great cheese, lactose free too!

Standard fare tourist attraction attached to the Big Banana complex. Usual array of cheese to try and/or buy, with assorted souvenirs. Staff seemed to wish they were somewhere else, with not much interaction with any of us in the store.More
