I.J. Mellis Cheesemonger, Edinburgh

4.4
#18 of 93 in Shopping in Edinburgh
Treat your taste buds at I.J. Mellis Cheesemonger, a small (and somewhat stinky) store. Opened over 20 years ago, the shop has been described as an "Aladdin's cave" for cheese, boasting a wide assortment of local and international product. Those who take their cheese seriously can pick up a number of accoutrements including baguettes, chutneys, and oils. Consult the expert staff for information about different flavors and pairings. If you're ready for a bite to eat, head upstairs to the on-site cafe to enjoy a warm cheese toasty. Put I.J. Mellis Cheesemonger at the forefront of your travel plans using our Edinburgh trip itinerary planning app .

  • Great cheeses amd wine. A hidde treasure
  • I would've loved to spend more time there but the staff was so efficient in helping me find my favorite cheese I was in and out in ten minutes! They're very knowledgeable and friendly and the cheese is delightful. I got an Auld Reekie and it was a great snack.
  • Such helpful and friendly staff. Sit down and smell the cheese while they prepare you a taste board. Affordable, and more cheese than you would bargain for.
  • Nice cheese, I recommend this shop! :D
