Eight truly brie-lliant cheesemongers that are so gouda you’ll havarti to stop by. We’re so, so sorry about the puns, but not sorry about the world-class cheese available in Perth.
Black Pig Deli & Co.
If you’re looking for cheese, and everything that goes with it, Black Pig Deli & Co. is a cheeseboard-lover’s dream. As well as artisanal cheeses from local and international makers, you can also find more terrines, pickles and patés than you could shake a cracker at.
4/890 Beaufort Street, Inglewood
The original! The big kahuna! When it comes to smallgoods, the Re Store (that’s both of them) is singular. Their cheese selection is no exception, with plenty of Europe’s best on offer – whether it’s French, Welsh, Danish, Spanish or anywhere in between. If you’re at the Leederville store, you can also take advantage of their stellar bottle shop – just don’t forget a conti roll for the road (here’s 11 of the best).
72 Lake Street, Northbridge
231 Oxford Street, Leederville
The Cheese Shop
After trading as Le Grand Fromage at countless farmer’s markets across Perth, the family-run stall has transitioned into a permanent location in the heart of Kalamunda. Just down the road from the market site, the passionate team of cheesemongers at the Cheese Shop are serving up a unique range of fromage with top-notch service to match.
Shop 2, 47 Railway Road, Kalamunda
La Delizia Latticini
Screw Netflix, we’d happily stand and watch them make mozzarella through the windows of La Delizia Latticini All. Day. Long. Hand-made in-store with fresh local milk, pick up a burrata, some ricotta or primo sale for your next cheese board, pizza night or salad – plus a fresh roll for lunch, of course.
The Park Centre, Shop 47, 789 Albany Highway, Victoria Park
European Foods Marketplace
What a frenzy we were all in when we heard about the opening of European Food Marketplace‘s cheese room. And now, nearly two years later, our breath still quickens when we think of that glowing, chilled, glass cathedral of cheese. Home to over 350 types of cheese, you’ll be more than spoilt for choice.
90 Frobisher Street, Osborne Park
Little Sister Delicatessen
As if Kakulas Sister wasn’t enough of a delicious treasure trove, the addition of Little Sister Delicatessen next door was just the icing on the cake… or the rind on the cheese? In any case, we’re always excited to check out their offerings, with an almost overwhelming selection of cheeses on offer from around the globe, with a focus on French styles. Whether it’s soft white clouds of Brillat-Savarin, pretty-as-a-picture South Australian goats cheese pressed with flowers, or brandy-washed Époisses – these guys have a cheese for everyone.
25 Market Street, Fremantle
Napoli Mercato is your one-stop shop for everything delicious. The family behind the market has been in the business for over 50 years, and the love for produce clearly shows. Jam-packed with fresh fruit and veg, charcuterie and desserts, the store also boasts a cheese room that’s practically overflowing with the stuff. Hold our calls, we’ve got somewhere to be…
Corner of Ranford Rd & Wright Rd, Harrisdale
We couldn’t just leave our vegan mates out in the cold, could we? Luckily, local producer Noshing has plant-based cheese-lovers more than covered. The range includes blue vein, marinated feta, brie, havarti, smoked gouda and cheddar, all crafted with homemade almond milk. Who needs dairy when the alternatives are this good?
Stocked across Perth, or can be picked up from their kitchen at 25 Love Street, Cloverdale.
