Friendly and highly knowledgeable service and an excellent selection of farmhouse food products from across the country, are the hallmark of this cafe and deli. The Cheese Gourmet is one of the few places in Joburg that can actually lay claim to the title of stocking “artisanal products”, including more than 140 cheese varieties, preserves and cured meats produced with care. The store owners Jo and Brian Dick are champions of Slow Food. The store even supplies Banting – Paleo breads baked fresh daily. The cafe menu has plenty of tasty options including frittata, paninis and quiches and a mean ploughman’s lunch with the crispiest bread, sweet pickle, cheeses and a homemade pork pie.
