Having moved to Western Ontario for school two years ago, I can say I've searched far and wide for a cheese store that can even come close to comparing to the variety at the Cheese Emporium. I've tried 6 different Cheese and fine foods stores, and none of them had the specific cheese I was looking for. I've also tried to buy some prosciutto, and am sad to say none of them tasted the same as they did when I bought them from the Cheese Emporium. I heard from a friend that they can vacuum seal your cheeses to last longer, so hopefully next time I'm back in Toronto I can bring back a months supply :) Over all very good store, and have never had a problem with the staff. All very knowledgeable, especially the owner.

Going back to the two posts regarding the customer's right to get what they ask for versus a specific offering related to "house rules" for serving a certain way...the grilled brie/prosciutto and olive oil with balsamic at the restaurant: I think it is the responsibility of the employee to explain why their establishment has decided to serve an item only a certain way and then still leave it up to the client to have their wish. As an olive oil importer that has now spent almost two years experiencing and thinking about olive oils almost 24 hours per day (yes, in my sleep/lack of) I can say it is true that some extraordinary, very good quality, olive oils are much better enjoyed without the strong balsamic vinegar or do not mix with this vinegar's taste (olive oils are like wines, and have their own food pairing particularities). Unfortunately, it would be too expensive for the Cheese Emporium to create a second sandwish to show the taste difference to the client, but it could have been done with the olive oil!
