“Very enjoyable experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

I recently got together with friends at the Grilled Cheese Social Eatery and we all enjoyed it very much. To start, who doesn't love grilled cheese? They have a good variety of sandwiches, with the option of a salad or chips. The place also has a cool "hipster" vibe to it. Eclectic music playing in the background, murals on the wall, and one of the most interesting bathrooms I have been in for some time, lol. It has more of a coffee house feel than a restaurant feel. I would easily visit again.

“GREAT 1st Impression!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

From the moment we walked in, to the moment we sat down and received our food, I loved every bit of it. Felt like walking into a nice college café place specifically for a great grilled cheese sandwich. The variety is nice, the value for what we paid for was very good. Staff was pleasant, but again the grilled cheese...would've had another if we didn't have to be somewhere lol. Wish I took pictures this time around, but that's ok, I will do it next time...and there WILL be a next time.

“Cheese, Cheese and More Cheese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

This little establishment on Dunlop Street is very interesting and a great place for a light lunch. All kinds of grilled cheese sandwiches and very delicious. The chips are great too and different from regular French fries. The décor is eclectic and the washroom is worth the visit alone. Cash or debit only. Limited hours.
