SYDNEY | Penny’s Cheese Shop was opened in 2018 in Potts Point by cheese maker Penny Lawson, who is well versed in all things cheese. Her CV includes time spent learning the trade at places like Sydney’s Kings Cross Markets, and London’s Borough Market.
Penny’s is one of the best places in Sydney if your looking for the best local and international cheeses to enjoy, along with all of the extras like honey, crackers, bread and quince paste. Penny’s is also famous for what many consider to be the bets toasted cheese sandwiches in the city.
Only a very small number of these wonders are made each day, and the exact fillings vary with regularity. When I visited, it was a sourdough cheese toastie with kimchi and wagyu pastrami. And wow, did it live up to expectations. A sweet and savoury, salty and tangy, gooey umami laden thing of unctuous delight.
Penny’s is open Tue – Sat during lockdown for all of your Sydney cheese needs, and they are still doing grilled cheese toasties to go too. If it’s in your radius, definitely get on it.
