The Cheese Room - if only you could smell it!

Richmond Hill Cafe & Larder is famed not only for its food (after all it was started by Stephanie Alexander - an icon in the restaurant and food industry) but also for its Cheese Room. The choice of cheeses is amazing and the smell.....it's an olfactory overload. It seems that the smellier the cheese the more likely it is to be on the Cheese Room shelves.

The Cheese Altar
Walking into the temperature controlled environment is like walking on hallowed ground. There seems to be a sense of reverence emanating from it. So even if you don't like cheese - yes there are people I'm told - it is definitely worth a visit and it's within walking distance of Bowen Cottage.

Bowen Cottage guest comment this week: We have arrived, the cottage is beautiful and we love the little treats. We will be very at home for the next few days.


  1. I've been buying cheese here for years, it seriously is THE PLACE for cheese lovers. To enter the room in an olfactory & visual sensation. The staff are well trained & very helpful, who generously offer as many "tastings" as you please. I've just purchased some glorious cheese today, yum yum, can't wait until this evening so I can share it with my friends.

  2. It certainly is another world! And yes it is THE PLACE for cheese in Melbourne. Aren't we lucky to have it here in Richmond!
