My rating scale only goes to 5 so I guess that’s the best I can do, but The Cheese Iron deserves an extra star. Don’t let the name fool you, a great selection of fine cheeses is just the start. They also sell wine, chocolate from Nutmeg Foods and others, their own custom blend of coffee, bread from Standard, a few choice fruits and vegetables, paninis, and so much more. The staff are charming and very knowledgeable. I’m now addicted.
