I know people think grilled cheese sammies are easy to make but we all know that they are not that easy. This place tho has making them down to a science! I chose to make my own and I kept it simple with cheeses and bacon. Added a bowl of tomato soup with it. Both things came out piping hot and they were so so good. The soup was light and fresh and somehow, they succeeded in not making me a greasy sandwich. I could have easily gotten a cup of soup instead of a bowl, the sandwich was more than enough. Overall, I'd come here a million times again!

A rainy day got us, needed some good comfort food for lunch. What better than grilled cheese?!?!?! Super friendly staff built our own grilled cheese watched the rain fall and stayed warm inside. Perfect with no lines

I was hungry. And tired. Grilled Cheese Bar? That was new to me. Stopped in with my wife. It was a busy place. Prompt, excellent service. I had a grilled smoked apple and gouda cheese sandwich. Truly impressed. Lovely end to a long day playing tourist.

Ate here after seeing this place on TripAdvisor. I had the Apple and Gouda Grilled Cheese with Mac & Cheese as a side. Cheese overload!

It was absolutely great. Bread was perfectly crispy and the cheese was melted perfectly. Best grilled cheese I’ve ever had.
