From Antonelli's to Zingerman's, these shops stock the finest local and imported cheese.

Di Bruno Brothers, Philadelphia

12 of 14

The most iconic Philly dish has cheese in its name, so it's no wonder the city's finest food emporium is dedicated to the stuff. Opened in 1939 by three immigrant brothers, the original Di Bruno occupies a modest spot in the bustling Italian Market on South Ninth Street. In 2004, the family added a massive, Eataly-style space on Chestnut Street, with a 300-square-foot cave, more than 500 imports, and Pronto, an upscale café serving soups, panini, and salads. Salesmen—including the original owners' sons and nephews—can answer any questions about the origins of products, including local cheeses and seasonal imports like specialty olive oils and pesto ingredients.

Cheesemonger's Choice: Langres, a French cow's milk bathed with locally brewed Tired Hand's Zephyrus saison during aging ($16.99).
