About Us

We are Cape Town's first boutique artisan cheese hub and fermented foods hotspot and restaurant. With 80% local and 20% imported cheese, husband and wife Luke and Jessica are seeking to turn Cape Town into South Africa's cheese capital.

Luke is a cheesemaker, monger and affineur from the UK, who has made cheese all over England and worked with the world's biggest names in cheese whilst working as cheesemonger at London's most prestigious cheese shop, La Fromagerie for several years.

We spent 2014 travelling SA to meet the makers, and proudly sell only the best of South Africa's handmade cheeses from grass fed, happy animals.

We work with suppliers who are motivated by the quality, integrity and provenance of their product, focusing on hand crafted, preservative-free creations from small producers. We aim to be the best cheese shop in South Africa.

We sell cheese, bread, wine, beer, Deluxe coffee, charcuterie, condiments and lots of store cupboard essentials.

We have a restaurant with honest, local food and wifi.
