2000 BEST Cheese Shop
South End Formaggio
We’re pleased to report that South End Formaggio is a chip off the block of its sister cheese shop, Cambridge’s legendary Formaggio Kitchen. While the latter is permanently etched into our Hall of Fame, the new South End branch is equally deserving. Unlike F.K., the shopping experience here is totally urban. Owner Valerie Gurdal stocks the same superlative collection of exotic cheeses (everything from Spanish cabrales to Scottish cheddar to Vermont goat), but she’s also got imported beers and wines (check out the sparkling Shiraz from Australia), high-end condiments (don’t miss the lavender honey), and even a candy counter. There’s nothing like competing with yourself.
