We will be staying very near this famous cheese shop for our viist in May. We like good food, but are not gourmet. Can someone recommend some good cheese (without breaking the bank)? Our tastes run to Brie, Cheddar, Monterey Jack, plain Gouda and smoked Gouda. Not fans of super strong cheeses. We don't favor blue cheeses. We will want to try some cheese, can we ask for samples before buying or is that a no-no? I have heard that the woman owner is a little eccentric and we do not want to offend - thanks!
