This is the original location of the famed cheese shop; the other is in Rittenhouse Square. The major difference between the two is size. The one uptown is enormous and covers two floors. This shop is tiny—long, narrow, and cave-like, with salamis hanging from the ceiling like stalactites. Still, it's jam-packed with all the specialties you expect from the Di Brunos—cheeses, olive oils, prepared foods—plus a sandwich counter and the usual über-knowledgeable staffers.
