I.J. Mellis Cheesemonger, Edinburgh

4.6
#17 of 77 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 .

  • Little cheese shop close to the Royal Mile. Amazing selection of local, Scottish cheeses and imported ones. Also have some very good artisan charcuterie, preserves and crackers to go with the cheeses. The staff there are happy to help, offer tastings and advice to cheeses to try.
  • Great cheese, great meat, and great staff. The red deer black pudding (more like a chorizo, really) was a particular highlight, as was a wonderful brandy-washed soft cheese, the name of which escapes me. The staff I've spoken to on the occasions I've visited have all made lovely recommendations for new things to try.
  • top quality cheese, charcuterie, and everything else they sell. great to have them in edinburgh,,,try the croque monsieurs in stockbridge on sundays,.,. what a treat.,..,
