La Cave a Fromage – Worth a visit.

P1180276

Our idea to head to La Cave a Fromage for lunch was simply to try something a little different. We normally try and squeeze in 4 restaurants on our London weekenders and because we were dining at Marcus Wareing that same evening we opted for something that would be easy on the stomach and set us up for 20 or so courses at our 8pm slot in The Berkeley.( click here to see the meal )

This wonderful little discovery hit us perfectly square in the `comfort zone` , it really isn`t geared up for diners as it`s simply `a shop`.There`s 5 or 6 small tables squeezed into a tiny area of the room.These tables are set aside for walk in customers ( although we booked ) to sample the delights of the establishment and to sit and observe the day to day running of this busy little place which is just over the road from South Kensington tube station.

Our selection of Cheeses , we were instructed to start with the Goats cheese and work our way around the plate in order to enjoy them at their best.I believe the Orange accompaniment to be Quince jelly.

Not sure where the bread was made but it`s for sale in the shop and also used for the Tasting selections.

Now for the price….Mmmnnnnn well hey , I`m still not sure here so i went and checked up on other foodie blogs. We got the slate of Charcuterie and we got the slate of Cheeses…and the Breads. We also got 3/4 different glasses of wine each to accompany the meal….and the bill if i remember correctly was £28….all in. This also corresponds with the other reports online so i can only assume its correct….ish. If so then Jeez man….get your backsides round there as it`s amazing value.

Please correct me if i`m wrong and i`ll right it. Needless to say….we made a quick exit….but shall return without a doubt.
