I can't even go back to regular grilled cheese after eating here! The dill pickle grilled cheese, possibly called dillicious, was DELICIOUS! Very chill place. Too bad they don't serve beer and aren't open for the late night bar rush on weekends....This place would be the bee's knee's for late night... read more

Best grilled cheese ever, but hours are lame. Open for only lunch, could have a lot more business if they were open until at least 6 or 7. Could use improving when it comes to hours, you can't be open for only 5 hours a day... Close on Sunday's instead. Love the vibes in here too it's just a shame... More

Hey X, Thanks for the review. We are stoked that you love the Grilled Cheese ...''best ever'' right on! We have been downtown Barrie for 2 years now the 5 hour thing has worked like a charm so far, but as far as your suggestion, we are seriously looking at extending our hours on Friday and Saturday night, maybe even...

Hey Meghan, Thanks so much for the wonderful review. Just one thing. We are open 7 days a week from 11 am to 4 pm. Not sure why you thought we were closed on Monday and Tuesdays. Is there any chance your review could be edited. And we do open up some Friday and Saturday late nights from midnight until... More

I avoided this place for a long time because I don't usually even like grilled cheese ~ big mistake. This place takes grilled cheese to a whole new level. I tried the Green Goddess grilled cheese and it was amazing. It had goat cheese, avocado, spinach etc etc. I could tell all the ingredients were really high quality and I... More

Took the kids and we all had a blast! What a fun place to enjoy a delicious lunch. Who knew grilled cheese could be so Good? This is the funkiest restaurant in Barrie. The decor, music, staff, are all above the fold. The owner was so pleasant and engaging. My kids felt at home. Last but not least the grilled... More

Wanted to explore Cottage Country so the first stop was an early Saturday lunch of designer grilled cheese. I had the pierogi (bacon, cheddar, Carmelized onions). Wife had the pear and Brie. Both were outstanding comfort food (with pizzazz). A tad bit pricey for cheese sandwiches and sodas ($28 before tip). But we will go back. The quality is worth... More

Hey there, thank you for the kind words, humbled we are. Im not sure who gave you the impression that we are peanut free, we do have full, whole, and multi grain breads all over the kitchen. I am not sure if our breads are certified ''peanut free''. Sorry for the mix up. See you soon! More

I called ahead from North Bay to ensure this was open on Good Friday, because I was intrigued by the concept of simply grilled cheese fare. The owner was very friendly and helpful over the phone. When we arrived days later he was on hand to take our order and remembered us. This is a tiny place on the main... More

The sandwiches were very enjoyable. It's more of a sandwich place rather than a grilled cheese place. But it was a lot of fun. Just be aware they don't take visa.

My girlfriend described this as 'what dreams are made of'! This Eatery is excellent, it is a fairly small place but with tonnes of character. The owners have decorated the place really well and it really adds to the atmosphere. The food is so simple but done so well. It is grilled cheese with 13 different takes on it, both... More
