I have been here many times. The owner a quickly friendly man is always there and cheerful. The sandwiches come with salad or potato chips and range, I believe, from $5-10. They're all delish. They also have a program that allows you to buy a grilled cheese for a homeless local person....just a little taste of the kindness you'll experience... More

You take for granted what a grilled cheese sandwich is until you go to the Grilled Cheese Social Eatery. The combinations of things that you can put into your sandwich are to die for as long as you are adventurous. If you aren't adventurous then stick with the tried and true selections. Regardless, you will not be disappointed!

We were impressed with the wide choice of unique grilled cheese creations. Service was personal and efficient! If you like trying a new twist on an old time favourite, try it out. You'll like it!

We stopped in here for a late lunch. We knew they were busy on Saturday's, so we called ahead for a reservation and our 'reserved table' was quite easy to find, when we arrived! The service was super friendly, the sandwiches and soup were absolutely amazing. Even the unique way they served the water was fun! Our son loves challenging... More

A cozy, eclectic funky little joint that radiates love through the atmosphere, the people that gather there and, of course, the yummy grilled cheese. It’s a local favourite, a gathering place and spot not be missed whether you are passing through or call Barrie your home. I totally dig it. Very groovy.

I had lunch here with a friend and both of us were absolutely blown away by the experience. I ordered the Pieorgi Grilled Cheese and a Mac n Cheese Grilled cheese. I told the man I was only eating half and saving half for later. He took the liberty of packing half up for me without me having to ask,... More

I went to this restaurant a couple of times this month and absolutely loved it. I tried the spirit catcher with cheddar only and it was incredible, hot and the flavours went together beautifully. I also had the tomato basil soup on the side and it was bursting with freshness and flavour, what a perfect combination! I went a second... More

Hello, Thank you so much for the review, it means so much more you having visited twice. I am sorry about the soup, but we are learning about ourselves everyday and our SOUPs are becoming more and more popular. As we grow so does the amount of soup we prepare. And one of the downsides to in-house, fresh, gluten free,... More
