Heywood a Grilled Cheese Shoppe Los Angeles

For the cheese-obsessed ‘grilled cheese o’clock’ is an alarm worth setting, can you hear it? Yes? Me too.

So if you’re hungry — and of the breed who believes cheese makes every meal that much more pleasant — you’ll want to plan your next cheese-filled sitting at one of the finest gourmet grilled cheese shops in LA: the Heywood Grilled Cheese Shoppe.

Named after 16th-century writer of poems and fiction, a man who showed signs of a serious cheddar addiction John Heywood, the Heywood Grilled Cheese Shoppe was built in 2011, located at 3337 W Sunset Blvd, just half a mile south of Sunset Junction.

Store hours are from Sunday through Wednesday 11am – 10pm and Thursday through Saturday from 11am – 3am; make sure to come hungry, the proportions are massive.

The menu highlights both traditional and exotic gourmet-style cheeses:

- 2-year old English cheddar, a cheese that delivers a sharp and fun flavor. Goes well with a Zinfandel, Merlot or Port;

- Fontina, a mild and creamy cheese with a nutty flavor. It goes well with a California style Pinot Noir or an IPA;

- Mozzarella very creamy and light;

We were looking for a restaurant nearby that would satisfy the diverse tastes of our two-family group. Heywood certainly fit the bill: cheese for the dairy lovers, for the vegetarians, dairy free option for those who were nondairy (thank goodness we didn't have anyone with gluten issues!).

We loved it so much we ate there several times during our week stay. I think my personal favorite was a grilled cheese with mozzarella, blue cheese, and walnut pesto.

Portions are large so come hungry, share with a friend, or prepare to bring home for lunch the next day.

This is one of the fav places of our LA niece. Generous portions, tasty tomatoe dipping soup, fresh salad. Sandwich bread grilled to perfect crispness. Go back spot.
