During a recent trip to London we strolled down the Marylebone area of the city.
Marylebone starts off at the end of Oxford Street and is filled with shops that that remind us why, instead of always going to the commercial areas, it is nice to explore off the grid areas that are unpretentious and different, because that is currently the coolest thing around.
The area has the feel of a country village, offering all kinds of independant fashion and book stores, a number of quirky farm shops, independent coffee houses & trend-setting cafes such as “La Fromagerie.”
La Fromagerie is part of a growing “Hyper Local” trend, attaching an eating cafe to a shop and serve what's being sold next door. La Fromagerie offers everything you’d want from a lunch place. With a long sharing table running down the centre of the cafe and a menu jammed full of charcuterie boards, sharing platters and antipasti dishes.
The shop itself is full of life. Vegetables, pickled everything, freshly baked bread, cooking books, wines, a cheese department, charcuteri. Everything a foody could hope for. And most of this stuff organic.
Tasting sessions are being held regularly where customers can enjoy the cheeses on offer paired with quality and rare wines, usually around a specific theme.
If you happen to be in London, don’t miss La Fromagerie!
