Part of the La Fromagerie group (there are other sites in Bloomsbury and Highbury), this cosy cheese and wine shop-cum-café has won the hearts of locals.
Here, you’ll find the shelves stocked with all manner of fromage-friendly goodies as well as spreads, fruit and vegetables, while the contents of the cheese room itself are served in the studiously simple café area at the back. Take a seat at the huge communal table or on one of the benches and enjoy a daily-changing menu which incorporates the produce sold on-site.
Early risers can enjoy breakfast dishes such as cheese toasties or scrambled eggs on sourdough, while lunchtime sees the more substantial likes of warming soups, savoury tarts and bowls of fondue served with charcuterie. The just-dropped-in atmosphere makes La Fromagerie a great weekend brunch spot – think croque monsieur and eggs every way – while a regular schedule of events (late opening on Fridays for cheese and wine tastings; supper clubs on the first Monday of every month) are further reasons to pay a visit.
Ticketed Tasting events held throughout the year include Burns Night, Valentine's, Seasonal and Regional Suppers – all listed on its website.
