Cosy old-fashioned cheese shop with a 1001 choices, located in the heart of Brussels near Grand Place

Closed today


A small, old style shop with 1001 flavours and a vast choice and mostly Catherine de Sloovere and José Servais who , with a big smile, like taking their time to explain and talk about the many different cheeses and their origin. Flavours galore!

Hard texture or bloomy rind cheeses , goat's cheeses , sheep's cheeses, cow's cheeses, cheeses of many different origins and texture produced by specialist cheesemakers from Belgium , France , Italy , Spain, England , Ireland, …

The names alone will make you want to put a great cheese platter together, order a raclette or dream of a fondue.

Let’s also not forget the fine hams, patés, sausages and other fine meat specialities whose special odours mix so well with the cheeses.
Do not hesitate to ask us for advice, José and I love explaining!
It was my mum who started the shop in….1951.

Our lunchtime sandwiches are –so they say – exceptional… Of course with good ingredients and the best bread… simple!
