Kids leave plenty of food on their plates (you’ve got the overflowing, raccoon-friendly, city-issued compost bin to prove it).
Don’t grill them over it. Take them to one of these top grilled cheese sandwich spots in Toronto.
Maybe it’s their focus on locally grown food, but recently opened Millwood Melt is making a name for itself with their cheesy (in a good way) offerings. It’s one of the rare places to have a specific menu item for kids, the mini-melt. Try a specialty sandwich or concoct your own. Good to Know: They’re only open at lunch from 11 am to 3 pm, Tuesday to Saturday.
Leslieville Cheese Market has many locations (Leslieville, Queen West and Donlands Ave.) which will be a relief when you want to feed ferociously hungry kids. Less adventurous youngsters may opt for the Classic Grilled Cheese, but if the fig and chevre is on the menu that day, it’s a must. Sandwiches come with dipping sauces, which the kids will love. Good to Know: The shops are small so your order might be a take-out.
Lactose-loving locals west of High Park have their own grilled cheese haven in Melt Grilled Cheese. Select one of 11 different grilled cheese options and in less than five minutes your order will be up. Perfect for kids who can’t wait for anything, especially food. Good to Know: They only have bar stools for seating along a counter, and it’s exceptionally busy at lunchtime with Humber students.
Just imagine never having to cut the cheese again with these 6 Top Grilled Cheese Sandwich Spots in Toronto.
