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 our grab some cheese to take away at any time of the day. 

The coffee and food

From Melbourne, well re-known for the coffee culture, Coffee Mio from Thornbury was a simple choice. Having leaved nearby 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

Our approach is simple, bring your favourite wine and build your custom board. There is no menu for cheese, you can pick whatever cheese please 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. 
 
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 cheese that we have access off, you can always ask us and we will get it in for you. We always want to insure that customers are happy with their purchases, so you are more than welcome to try before you buy. All our cheese are freshly cut to order and wrapped in cheese paper with a label stating name, origin and milk type. Our display fridge with Cedar shelves is design to keep the cheese in peak conditions and our cloche helps to mature the goat cheeses to their best.
