Balgowlah Store

We are not your usual coffee shop, retail cheese shop and wine bar. We believe that the secret ingredient is always the cheese :)

This is our little piece of Europe. A place that you can come in to enjoy a coffee, a toastie, a cheeseboard or grab some cheese to take away at any time of the day.  

The Retail Cheese Shop

Our small and eclectic selection includes some old time favourites as well as quirky new limited editions. Whilst we cannot stock all the cheeses we have access to, you can always ask us and we will get it in for you. We always want to ensure that customers are happy with their purchases, so you are more than welcome to try before you buy.

All our cheeses are freshly cut to order and wrapped in cheese paper with a label stating name, origin and milk type. Our display fridges with Cedar shelves are designed to keep the cheese in peak conditions and our cloches help mature the goats cheeses to their best.

The Coffee and Food

From Melbourne, well renowned for the coffee culture, Coffee Mio from Thornbury was a simple choice. Having lived near the roasting store, we knew the delicious smell that will entice our old suburb. Our toasties ooze of delicious cheese and our menu is based on fresh and seasonal produce, think of Burrata and tomato or baked camembert, house pickles and cured meat.

Wine BYO & Cheese

We are currently not doing Wine BYO & Cheese nights. 

Our approach is simple, bring your favourite wine and build your custom board. There is no menu for cheese, you can pick whatever cheese pleases you. Aurore is here to guide you and create the perfect board that match your wine, taste or mood. Add prosciutto, house marinated olives... all served with Sourdough bread, lavosh, jams... we also cater for Gluten Free.
