Welcome to les amis du FROMAGE
les amis du FROMAGE is Vancouver's busiest and best cheese shop. Not only have the readers of The Georgia Straight voted les amis Vancouver's Best Cheese Shop, les amis du FROMAGE has also been a recipient of Vancouver Magazine's restaurant award for Top Food Supplier to Vancouver's finest restaurants.
The mother and daughter team of Alice & Allison Spurrell stock the larders of the city's finest restaurants and your fridge alike. They fill their shelves with hundreds of cheeses including local, unpasteurized (Lait Cru) French, English, Italian, Spanish, Swiss and other specialties from around the world. The store regularly stocks between 400-500 cheeses for sale to both trade and consumers. Of those cheeses, at least 150 are from Canada, with a focus on British Columbia and Quebec.
In addition to cheese, we also import many other specialty foods including top quality blended and single varietal extra virgin olive oils, specialty vinegars, cheese accompaniments, crackers and biscuits, local and imported charcuterie and cheese equipment including girolles, cheese knives, cheese boards, raclette machines and fondue pots.
Our East Vancouver store is home to our productions kitchen where our chefs prepare our popular line of frozen ready to heat soups and entrees. These can be purchased at all les amis du FROMAGE stores.
We look forward to serving you.

We've extended out holiday shopping hours to make cheese shopping easier for you. Please click on the store below for details.
The staff at LADF have been busy preparing some of your holiday favourites. Whole wheels of English Stilton have been soaking in Taylor Fladgate port for several weeks now. They should be ready for sale by December 16th. We’ve even prepared a batch of Tourtiere this year. Grand Fromager Alice Spurrell has been making this favourite Quebecois pork pie for her family for over 50 years. Made from hand cut pork that’s been simmered all day with potatoes, onions and spices, it wouldn’t be Christmas at our house without it. This year we’ve managed to make a few extra. It’s a once a year thing, so supplies are very limited.
