Welcome to a food lovers paradise!
Vancouver Island's premier cheese shop and specialty foods store.



We will be open Tuesday to Saturday

10 till 5

We want to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful customers who have faithfully supported our business over the years and especially during this Covid nightmare. Thank you.

Like most businesses, especially small ones like ours, we are currently having real challenges finding good staff and we have been struggling with how do deal with this, especially since business is good and we are seeing happy customers old and new every day.

When the pandemic was at its worst last year, we stayed open but cut our hours. Our customers responded wonderfully and carried us through, and we had an excellent finish to a difficult year.

As we approach our busy fall and Christmas season, we have given it much thought and have decided to follow many other businesses and close on Sundays and Mondays. This will help to ensure that we don’t get completely burnt out and we hope that our customers will understand that and support us.

Starting after Thanksgiving we will be open Tuesday to Saturday 10 to 5 and closed Sunday and Monday and statutory holidays. As always, we look forward to serving you and bringing delicious treats to our range of quality products for you to enjoy.

Once again, a sincere thank you for your support and understanding from all of us at McLean’s Specialty Foods. Eric and Sandy, Christy, Katrina, and Ema.

Just in time for the weekend!
