Small Space - Giant Heart

  • Yes, I would go back!

I am more than proud to drop my hard earned money here. The owner seems to live cheese - offering several samples and endless explanations of his wide selection of cheeses. The prices are incredibly reasonable for the quality of the product. I judge every shopping experience by how I feel on the way out the door. This place, with it's passion for authentic fresh cheeses, will make you want to run back for the next great find. Take the time to ask questions. Do not be intimidated by the crowd. It is a small space but there is enough service to keep the line moving while still being able to "talk cheese." My only caution - If you are not passionate about what you do, the people at Calandra's will remind you why it is so important to find love in your work. - A Faithful Arthur Ave-ian
