London Tastin'

La Fromagerie - Cheese Shop and Tasting

La Fromagerie is one of the best cheese shops in London. If you google ‘best cheese shop’, it’s on all the top 5 listings. There are two in London, one at Highbury and another just off Marylebone High Street. Their cheese room deserves a thorough study on its own with so many varieties. You can try a selection of seasonal, French, Italian or British cheeseboards at their ‘Tasting Cafe’, which also serves freshly made quiche and salads. Weekends can get very busy, we spent a good 20 minutes queueing for a seat at the communal table. You can use the time to wonder around the small shop for homemade sauces, jams and seasonal fruits and vegetables. On Sunday (10am - 2pm), you can also go to the nearby farmers’ market for local produce.

Verdict - 4/5

I loved the cheeseboards here and their oat biscuits. After sampling a few cheeses, we bought lots to take home. Wines were also perfectly paired with the boards. I’d definitely come back for more cheese! The salads and soups other people were having also looked delicious and healthy!
