Famed for the smell that entices passers-by, Mellis is one of a kind – a rustic cheesemonger with maturing rooms in Edinburgh and five other branches across Scotland. Iain Mellis started the business around two decades ago and sells a wonderful selection of Scottish cheese as well as cheese from Spain, Italy and France. Inside the shop are massive rounds stacked high across wooden benches and friendly, knowledgeable staff who are always willing to give you a taste. More recently they have expanded their deli range and now stock olives, artisan bread and quality cold meats including Iberico chorizo and Italian salami.
