#11 of 93 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 .

  • If I lived in Edinburgh, this would be my local! Incredible selection of wonderful cheeses and deli goods, and by far the best toasted cheese sandwich I've ever eaten.  more »
  • We tasted a lunch at their grilled cheese sandwiches: very hearty and very good! Very small shop but a large selection of cheeses and also sells scottish eggs.

  • Fantastic place with a great choice of tasty cheese. The staff is very helpful and I was invited to taste a variety of cheese before I decided what to buy. Highly recommended!
  • One of the best cheese places in Edinburgh. They know their stuff and are happy to give you recommendations based on your preferences. Some cheeses are a bit pricey but it is worth the quality
