Spring Street Grocer has a small, but interesting range of essential products such as chocolate, pasta, oil, vinegar and so on. But the real treasure here is to descend into the tiled-lined cheese shop in the cellar where you will find one of the best ranges of cheese in the country and also the best looked-after cheese.
It is worth the trip here to source some of their l'Etivaz gruyere from Fribourg in Switzerland which lies about half way between Lausanne and Berne. They also sell the Marcel Petite Comte from the Jura region of France - this producer has a fine reputation for this style of cheese and it matches perfectly with an oxidative Jura Savagnin or Melon le Queue Rouge. They usually have the C2 from the Bruny Island Cheese Company - one of the few Australian cheese that are made from raw milk.
