A stroll down rue Montorgueil must be punctuated by stops into the cheese, wine and chocolate shops you find along the street. This cheese shop is unique to this street meaning you won't find a chain of them throughout the city (which is why it's included on this list). There is nothing quite like wandering into a cheese shop, especially the good ones, like this one, here in Paris. First, breathe in. Just inhale that pungent mixture of aromas that ripe, fine cheeses emanate. Then, start choosing and assembling your cheese platter. A good cheese platter, for after supper or to be accompanied by your wine picks, has a selection of 4, 5 or 6 cheeses at least. So go ahead and let yourself discover a few of these French cheeses that you may have yet to try.

- 2nd Arrondissement - Montorgueil's Best Shopping: "Since Montorgueil is known as a neighborhood overflowing with above-average food shops, no wandering through the area would be complete without the requisite stop into a cheese shop. Sure, go ahead and buy the familiar Brie, but also why not splurge and try an aged Comté or Brebis?"
- Best for 2nd Arrondissement - Montorgueil's Best Shopping Because: The only thing you must decide before entering this cheese shop is which wines do you have a taste for today?
