La Fromagerie would be our nomination for one of the best grocery stores in London. Inside is everything for a well-stocked larder- there are freshly baked breads, jams and chutneys, dry goods, carefully selected produce including seasonal vegetables, wines, as well as a tasting café and cheese room. The shop floor is beautifully designed with the feel of a farm shop. The tasting café offers a more than satisfying daily seasonal menu. Here you can sit at the communal table and indulge in say the house cured salmon, or homemade terrines. Then of course there is the acclaimed fromagerie with its selection of regional farmhouse cheeses sourced from small farms and producers. Cheeses are matured onsite in the cellars and advice whether it be on cheese combinations or wine pairing is readily given by expert and friendly staff. What we like most about La Fromagerie is its food ethos - owner Patricia Michelson’s unmistakable passion for good food and wine, and the store’s educative focus (seminars are held on a regular basis).
