Penny’s Cheese Shop, Potts Point

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.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
