How do I write about cheese without sounding cheesy? I can't. So I'm not going to try, except for to say that if you enjoy wine and cheese, or adore double cream brie unto its gloriously fattening self, then you may want to visit this fromagerie on Bernard street. It is fantastic, and the whole experience of selecting and tasting and trying to talk intellectually about cheeses for a good ten minutes will convince you that you are indeed a cheese connoisseur; "Hi, yes, I'd like that assertive Stanser Rotelli I had the last time, you know, the aged, creamy one." Ohhhhh yes. That will be you.
I always visit this store when I am on Bernard. My boyfriend and I purchase two or three different cheeses, and then he visits Premiere Moisson for fresh bread (although there are also plenty of gourmet crackers and flatbreads available at Yannick) while I go and drool over the items at Moutarde Decor. If we need fruit or meat for a charcuterie platter, we visit Les 5 Saisons, the cutest fine grocery store in Outremont. And there you go... the perfect Sunday.
