Offering great local and imported cheeses.

Cheese Gourmet

The best in the business; hands-on service with a smile and over 140 cheeses to choose from. They believe that local is lekker and only supply South African cheeses, but that doesn’t mean they’re any less delicious than their imported counterparts, especially the Gorgonzolas, Emmenthals, Cheddars and Bries. What a shop!
