Let's be honest, I loved cheese before I stumbled upon Lucy's Whey.  However, since this location opened up right around the corner from my apartment, I have become a regular at the cheese counter.  The staff is legendary here!  They know their cheese inside and out and will take the time to speak with you about what you're looking for, and give you plenty of samples while you make your selection.  Outside of the INCREDIBLE cheese, they also have an amazing Craft Beer selection and small items to accompany your cheese like jam, honey, crackers, etc.  You'll be a cheese snob by the time you leave Lucy's!  Don't worry, this is a Snob Free Zone.  So don't be afraid to ask questions.  

There is also a restaurant here that has a happy hour during the week.  I have not sat down for a meal yet, but their grilled cheese and tomato soup looks awesome!

The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, and they have cheese and wine.  What more do I need to say?
