Calling All Cheese Connoisseurs: Taste Cheese From Around The World at Fromagerie Sophie in San Luis Obispo


It’s one of the sweetest business stories yet – California Life’s Gigi Copes introduces us to a couple that turned their love for cheese and each other into a delicious career with Fromagerie Sophie!

Fromagerie Sophie is a quaint, European-inspired cheese shop in downtown San Luis Obispo that’s combining old-world charm and a taste of Paris with the theme of “for the love of cheese.”

Founded by Sophie Boban-Doering and her husband Paul, the idea for Fromagerie Sophie was born out of a romantic vacation to Paris where they were inspired by the artisanal shops of Europe.

And for those of you who don’t speak French, Fromagerie means “cheese shop” and this wonderful shop features dozens of cheeses from around the world, many that you can’t find in other stores, all that can paired with fantastic wines and amazing gourmet meats. And don’t worry, if you’re not a cheese expert, Sophie and Paul will gladly help you along the way.

Fromagerie Sophie also hosts various clubs, like their very popular cheese of the month club, events, weddings and more. It’s truly a must-stop-shop when you’re in San Luis Obispo.
