IJ Mellis

Famed for the smell that entices passers-by, Mellis is one of a kind – a rustic cheesemonger with maturing rooms in Edinburgh and six branches across Scotland. Iain Mellis started the business over 15 years ago and the shops sell a wonderful selection of Scottish cheese as well as cheese from Spain, Italy and France. The shops have massive rounds stacked high across wooden benches and friendly, knowledgable staff who are always willing to give you a taste.
