We are a shop, bar and wholesaler established by Alex and Leo Guarneri specialising in seasonal cheeses and wines in the heart of the iconic Old Spitalfields Market.


All of our cheeses are hand-picked and sourced from independent farms across the UK, France and the rest of Europe. Seasonality is our raison d’être, which is why we vary our offering from summer through to winter. 

To accompany our cheeses, we stock a selection of charcuterie, fresh bread, chutneys and crackers. These alongside a variety of natural and biodynamic wines ideal for pairing. 

Looking for the perfect gift for the bon vivant in your life? Let us put together a bespoke hamper for you. We also prepare cheese cakes: heavenly stacks of cheese that make delicious and elegant centrepieces to any wedding or occasion. 


Modelled on an Alpine chalet, our bar and restaurant is open on Wednesdays for dinner and all day on Thursday to Sunday.

Enjoy a mêlée of seasonal and year-round delicacies, from cheese boards and fondue to raclette and homemade desserts, underneath the rafters of the iconic Old Spitalfields Market.

All of our dishes are prepared from the freshest products directly supplied from our shop.

During the day, the bar doubles up as a takeaway counter serving up a range of freshly-made sandwiches, mac & cheese and raclette.
