This small Essendon cheese shop inside the Prince Wine Store is well worth the Myki top-up.

Owner and cheese connoisseur Olivia Sutton offers a concise range with a strong emphasis on local producers. In fact, Sutton is so passionate about local cheese that she often spends her weekends at farmers’ markets serving up raclette and toasted sandwiches, all made with Victorian cheese.

Store favourites include the Yarra Valley Stone & Crow Night Walker, a cow’s milk washed rind which they say can’t be found anywhere else in Melbourne. The western Victorian Shaw River buffalo mozzarella is another noteworthy, being the first dairy in Australia to bring in milking buffalo.
