Belle Cheese is ecstatic to open in the great neighborhood we call home, Brooklyn’s Dekalb Market. Our mission: to transport your taste buds all over this big, beautiful world through cheese.

Whether you’re an adventurer or a newbie, take a trip with us to all the places we’ve savored the most delicious, surprising, and dynamic products in cheese making.

From English Stiltons, to Basque Idiazabal, to Upstate New York’s artisan best, we cut all of our cheeses to order so samplers are welcome! Hungry? Specialty sandwiches showcasing local and international cheeses are at the ready. Dinner party coming up? Let us build a brilliant, customized cheeseboard to take the stress out of entertaining, complete with nuts, fruits, jams, olive oil, crackers and more.

Enthusiastic about food and service, Belle Cheese has been a dream in the making for four plus years. We invite you to join this cheesy ride — taste, snack, sample, high five, hang out, chat for a while, and bring a piece of joy home. We can’t wait to meet you.
