Cheese in Glendale and Northridge

k panisse Nov 20, 2007 03:51 PM

I want to pick up some nice cheeses, a prosciutto/cheese log, yummy bread loaves, etc, along with a few bottles of sparkling cider and wine. Stuff to bring with me to people's houses on Thanksgiving.

I live in Glendale and I work in Northridge. Any good places I can go?

    In Northridge, Whole Foods at Rinaldi and Tampa has a large selection of good cheeses. Gelson's on Plummer between Tampa and Corbin also has good cheeses, but not as large of a selection as Whole Foods.

      Every cheese I've gotten at that whole Foods has been old and spoiled. I think the temp in the cooler is off.

        I've never had a cheese problem at the Whole Foods in Glendale...then again, I always ask for a taste of the piece they cut for me. Just be nice, polite, and considerate and any cheese dude will be happy to help you with cheese.

          it's true, many WF will let you taste. A good policy!

      Kinda on the high end budget-wise, but there's the Cheese Store of Silver Lake and Say Cheese, both Glendale-adjacent.

      And, of course, there's always Trader Joe's.

      Say Cheese
      2800 Hyperion Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027

      Cheese Store of Silver Lake
      3926 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90029

      Trader Joe's
      2730 Hyperion Ave, Los Angeles, CA

      Trader Joe's
      130 N Glendale Ave, Glendale, CA

          Have you tried Trader Joes? They have some great cheeses and the prices are great, and they also carry artisan breads and a great selection of wines.
