Grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup are just about as classic American as it gets. And when you place a killer grilled cheese shop in the middle of hip SoMa in San Francisco, you're certain to have an inventive, delicious refresh on this classic combo. My lunch here totally blew my mind. Came here for lunch when I was staying... More

Just a short walk from South Beach and the ATT Park you will find a most unique restaurant offering that San Francisco flavor. The major section on the menu are grilled cheese sandwiches that come in a wide variety. You can have them with most anything added on great sourdough bread. Also offering wine and other beverages. Most seating is... More

I am known for my love of cheese and this was a welcome find on our amblings around San Francisco! Definitely does what it says on the tin and with some style. Great food, great service.

I enjoyed the Farmer's Breakfast grilled cheese, and my husband loved the Huevos Rolando. We eavesdropped on a waiter and cook talking about orders and clients through the open window into the kitchen, as well as someone holding an interview at the bar, which made the place feel even smaller amidst their current construction.

We ended up eating here just because it happened to be on the route we were walking. Very glad we stopped in. I had a hard time choosing which sandwich to try. I had the Mac n Cheese Grilled cheese. If you love cheese this is the sandwich for you! Husband loved the Club Turkey. Definitely a place we would... More

Hot delicious cheese smothered between your favorite slices of bread! Add some favorite items like a avocado slice or fresh tomato or what pleases your palate and the perfect sandwich is created. Throw in a cold beer and some chips or even add a cup of soup and the perfect meal is in front of you. Savor every delicious bite.... More

Not your average grilled cheese for sure. They offer unique combinations and have great beers on tap. It was the perfect quick bit on our way to the game but not for a hot date or big meal. The sandwiches are not huge but what you would expect for a grilled cheese. Overall, we would do it again for sure.

After putting in 19,000+ steps on our Fitbit, decided to splurge! Had the mushroom gruyère with tomato soup and daughter had the mousetrap with avocado, so worth it! We went to the new one on Battery st and David at the front counter was very accommodating.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
