Most Austinites would agree that Antonelli's Cheese Shop is a welcomed addition to the neighborhood with rows and rows of cheese after cheese...
The cheeses are as local as the state of Texas to other domestics - Wisconsin (of course), California, and even my home state of Michigan! Then of course you have your popular imports from Spain, France, et al.
And I don't know how they do it, but they want you to sample and try every single cheese. As each customer enters the store, they are greeted by their very own cheese monger, ready to serve up suggestions and samples.
They're truly passionate about the love of cheese and more than happy to share their wealth of knowledge. For example, did you know that imported Brie is made especially by France for the U.S. per FDA standards? Apparently it is quite the cheese controversy.
Of course, to accompany the cheese, there's your choice of charcuterie:
And crackers and spreads...
So swing by today and take some home tonight! Cheese lovers, rejoice.
