Village Voice's Description

Itas everything a cheese shop should be: cramped, smelly, exhaustive in its collection, underpriced. The shop is utilitarian, not cute or fancy. There are some rulesahalf-pound minimum, no tasting allowed, and cash onlyabut the prices are literally insane. They run unbelievable specials, thanks partly to cheese importers who over-buy and then call East Village Cheese for help. Itas also one-stop party shopping (except for the booze part), since they carry an array of crackers, olives, deli meats, and bread, too.

    Winner of Best Place If You're Hungry For Love in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! The no-frills attitude of the shop makes it easy to conversate with attractive strangers.

    This should be your go-to cheese spot for their rotating selection of cheeses at absurdly low prices. When they’re busy, expect the service to be a little gruff.

    Go to East Village Cheese but don't buy the baguettes. They're stale.

    One of New York's best hidden gems! cash only cheese! Prices that can not be beat anywhere in the city. Just made a quick pit stop on the bike for some Brie, gruyere and olives...40 3rd Avenue, Ne

    The front cases have amazing deals. Also, read the specials on the windows outside and on the blackboards inside.
