I.J. Mellis' Cheese shop, Edinburgh

I sniffed this beauty out on my first day. What can I say, I was drawn to it. I have a cheese radar. Cheese is without doubt my favourite food and I stepped into this shop and almost passed out with joy. I.J. Mellis' lovely cheeses are from all over Europe, labelled in detail and beautifully displayed. Most of it was as expensive as you'd expect it to be but affordable to sample in small nuggets of heaven. Time Out website labelled it a Critics' Choice and noted their tasty breads, too. The only thing I would say is I can't believe how bored the staff seemed. If I worked in there I would be enthusing about all my wonderful cheeses every time anyone came in to look. Cheese is exciting, guys...
