  • Thank you to Robyn for our cheese tasting! This quaint cheese shop in Pokolbin was the destination for our cheese tasting, while on our wine tour in Hunter Valley. The cheeses ranged in flavour from a...  more »
  • Make sure you check the dates on the purchases you are buying. Very unhappy to find the Hunter Belle Camembert which was costly was already 10 days past the best before date. We were still able to eat...  more »
  • This shop is well advertised. It is small, has a cheese collection, but you basically CANNOT taste the cheese!! In my experience, at a fromagerie, you try the cheese before you make a choice/purchase....  more »

  • Loved it! Had deep fried Camembert with baguette. Was plenty for two to share for lunch for around $15. Friendly staff. No formal seating just picnic bar tables outside with a buzzer to go pick up food when time. Would recommend for lunch and visit. Terrific variety of produce in shop too from cheese antipastos etc
  • Convenient place in a nice classy building to rest up and have some breakfast/lunch that is not necessarily cheese. I actually wanted to pick up a nice cheese board there, but saw they were "Made in Thailand"... oh well...
  • I have always had great service at SC. This week I delved into the cheese fridge for goats' cheese & am so happy (despite the $$!). A special surprise was the delicious fish & (fat handcut) chips. $17 & worth every cent!! 2 large pieces of fish & lots of chips. Couldn't finish it by myself. #huntervalley #mustvisit
  • Excellent range of cheese's and hot food. If you want a good well priced breakfast (unlike cafe Enzo where you pay $30 for a big brekky), then this place is where you want to go! They are actually open from 9 and apart from an awesome range of cheese's, do hot food and brekky from 9-11am Crackers can be a little overpriced though...
  • Soooooo many tasty things to choose from!! 😎
