  • They used to stare at me blankly when I asked which cheeses were vegetarian, but now they mark which ones use vegetable rennet or microbial enzymes :)
  • Congrats on sfist top cheese shop list.
  • Prosciutto caprese sandwich has to be made in heaven and beamed down to earth. It's that good.
  • All Parmigiano Reggiano must contain animal rennet by Italian law. If you want a vegetarian substitute try "Dante."
  • Mika is the best! I always love my experience here--folks are knowledgable and passionate. Hand-picked gift basket, courtesy of Mika. Thank you!!
  • Don't be afraid to ask for help and to try things. They are really good at recommendations of cheese, salami, wine, and all the random snacks they have.
  • Friendly knowledgeable staff, great selection of cheese and wine
  • Vegetarian? Caprese or Harvarti Sandwich. Meat? Prosciutto Caprese. Excellent cheese, from an amazing Cave-Aged Gruyere to hard-to-find Appenzeller to Papillon Roquefort. Locals: Teleme and Baserri.

  • The roast beef is roasted in house and is great on the ciabatta. Of course, get some cheese!
  • Shhhhhh. It's fantastic. And the prosciutto caprese is badass.
  • Awesome selection and killer "freshly made" sandwiches.
  • They also carry a selection of some of the best dark chocolate around.
