Melt Grilled Cheese

What an awesome idea - a spot specializing in gilled cheese. As soon as my coworker recommended this tiny joint, we made plans to visit it. A great location too - right across the movie theatre.


An orange oval with a bold slab serif typeface, the branding is really not memorable and neither the rustic wood glued on the glass. However the food made up for any disappointments. There are quite a few options, including a poutine section and milkshakes!


We got their Toronto Tuna and Godfather. For both we had the choice of whole grain or sourdough bread. We picked the latter. The lady put on all the dressings and started one of the 6 large panini grills. It did take a bit longer than we expected, but it was worth it. Our Toronto Tuna came with roasted peppers, mozzarella, cheddar and mayo. It was delicious. As for the Godfather, I did have to return it as we had the choice of grilled or crispy chicken. The poor lady must have forgotten which one we picked. I must note she was busy and overwhelmed. The Godfather was very italian - cheddar, mozzarella, prosciutto, chicken, herbed tomato, pesto and a hint of balsamic vinegar. The sour-dough intensified all the already strong flavors. Pass by at the end of the line - there is a wooden box of home-made sauces to try - Sweet & Spicy Thai, Horseradish Mustard and Roasted Garlic.

We really enjoyed our sandwiches in paper boxes on their few tiny wooden tables and chairs outside. Be prepared as this meal is heavy. Made us both very sleepy for our beach volleyball game after!

PS: oh and just in case you were wondering - there is a big sign saying NO WASHROOM (no exceptions). I guess they can get away with that being a tiny joint.
