As you enter the old town from Löwenplatz, it is common to catch a whiff of warm Chäs Chüechli (quiche), ready to eat at the entrance of one of the last remaining independent cheese shops in Lucerne. It stocks over a 100 regional and international cheese varieties, including the Swiss classics Emmentaler, Gruyère and Sbrinz (a hard Swiss cheese similar to Parmesan). The local alpine cheeses are definitely worth a try and if you like a stronger flavour, then check out the rezent varieties. It also offers inhouse fondue creations (which you can then make at home), raclette cheese and regional milk products including those made with sheep and buffalo milk.
