2013-10-29 16:52:50   I was walking around the Wedge the other day, when I suddenly became a bit peckish, and decided to stop in for some cheesy comestibles. First thing I noticed was that there was NOT a bazouki player in the corner.....

OK, Monty Python allusions aside, this is a nice cheese shop, concentrating on nearly-local soft cheeses and sausages. The cheeses I tried were quite good, and I even took a couple home with me. The place was clean, and the service good, even if the selection was a bit limited.

So, why the 3-star rating? Value, that's why. The cheapest cheese they sell here is $20/lb, and it goes up to $36/lb!!!! The post prices in 1/4 lb prices, probably the ONLY place I've ever seen to do so. They also had some nice sausages, a package of 2 for....$14!!!! Holy cannolis, this stuff is EXPENSIVE!

The sad reality is that you can find a much better assortment of cheeses (some local-ish, some imported) for much, much less money at the bigger Wegman's stores. I doubt they will last in this location. You can't charge Pittsford prices in the South Wedge.

Great selection, knowledgeable staff, quality from start to finish. I am SO hopeful that people skip Wegmans once in a while and look to LBCS to supply their needs.
