I.J. Mellis Cheesemonger, Edinburgh
(4.2/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Edinburgh trip itinerary planner to arrange your visit to I.J. Mellis Cheesemonger and other attractions in Edinburgh.

  • Good apartment of cheeses with a bit pricy tags on them. When asked about cheeses they will swiftly recommend the a box with three little pieces of cheese. This is basically a box of cheeses that weight 150grams for the price of 300grams.
  • Good cheese but service was terrible, we waited half an hour in a queue of three to buy pre-wrapped cheese.
  • Great cheesemonger, friendly service, wish we had somewhere like this in newcastle.
  • Mellis Cheesemonger in Victoria Street is a lovely boutique where you will find delicious cheeses from Scotland, the UK, France and more. Bread, cheeses and apple are their main products, you could almost be in a French cheesemonger. If you feel like offering a box of different cheeses to your friend, they will advise you well. You even can ask for one of their lovely gift boxes. The only thing negative I could say, is that the customer service is sometime a bit "light".
  • One of those Stockbridge shops that it's crazy difficult to walk past without heading into. Whether you're a man on a mission to pick up just what you need, or want to sample a few new things before a picnic, the staff are friendly and helpful. Also loved the fact I could buy fresh farm butter at the same time!
