We bought Canadian cheeses, very nice, and the employee very knowledgeable. Not cheap, but in Canada cheeses are expensive.

I can't tell you how wonderful this little shop is. If you present receipt from Farm restaurant you get 10% off. We were able to try delicate little morsels and make our cheese selections. There is something called a grilled cheese bar with oooeeey gooeey to die for grilled cheese sandwiches. Counting down the days till I return.

I have lived in the Lower Mount Royal area, and since moved, but Janice Beaton's is a bi-weekly stop for me for my treat of delicious cheese from around the world. They are perfect for a snack for yourself, or for creating a delicious cheese platter for entertaining. The staff are very friendly and helpful (generous with offering samples as well), they seek to find what suits your pallet and are very knowledgeable. My only disappointment would be the one time I ordered a grilled cheese to take away for my lunch I was disappointed as it was smothered in mustard masking the taste of the cheese, and a little burnt on the bread. But the cheese, you cannot fault!

Stopping at Janice Beaton is a must every time we are in Calgary and this trip was no exception.

We picked up some wonderful fresh cheeses for Thanksgiving appetizers. All of the cheese is extremely fresh and so tasteful. The people working at JB also know their stuff. Tell them what you are serving and they can make suggestions on what cheese to use/serve.

I also picked up some JB flatbread which was a big hit!

This is a great cheese shop with an amazing selection. Staff are knowledgeable. If you want to try, then just ask. The place is not inexpensive but it is hard to find quality, knowledge and selection together.
