Why Detour?: 

the best cheese toastie in Australia

Penny’s Cheese Shop is a food institution, located in Potts Point Sydney. This tiny pocket sized cheese boutique is owned and run by Penny Lawson, a passionate and respected cheesemonger. This is the ultimate one stop cheese shop, supporting and showcasing local dairy producers whilst also featuring award-winning cheeses from around the world. There is not much about cheese that Penny does not know – so call in for a chat, and she, and her team, will recommend, cut and organise all your cheese needs. Penny’s Cheese Shop is also home to what is claimed by many to be Australia’s best cheese toastie! I’ve tried them and they alone are Worth a Detour.
