400 varieties of cheese from around the globe; unique and exciting
varieties that cheese lovers won't be able to resist, including a
sensational 100-pound wheel of Stilton - one of only 100 in the world -
and the Canadian Grand Champion Louis d'Or. Featuring an extraordinary
selection of cheeses available by the full wheel, half wheel or chunk
and with a special focus on local Canadian products, our cheese
specialists have created a special experience of scents, textures and
Chocolate chiselled by the chunk. Our Patisserie is home to irresistible handcrafted chocolate lovingly made with
all-natural ingredients. It features a mouth-watering selection of
cakes and cupcakes made from scratch, not to mention, ice cream cakes,
cheesecakes, donuts, muffins, chocolate pops and more. And, watch first
