After hearing many good things about this grilled cheese shop in Astoria, we decided to go. It blew our minds and taste buds. Enjoying specialty coffee along with amazing grilled cheese sandwiches and washing it down with craft beer was quite an evening of fulfillment. This labor of love by the power couple, Ben Sandler and Jennifer Lim, is making many patrons infatuated with their product. The diverse cultural spin-offs of an American classic is what separates this shop from the rest. We suggest you try the Arahovas Feta with Ajvar Roasted Red Pepper Spread and dill on Focaccia Bread and the Manchego and Ricotta on Multi Grain Bread with Minted Eggplant and Capers.

Beecher’s is just the spot to get your Grilled Cheese on. Even though not listed on the menu, Beecher’s created a Grilled Cheese Martini which contains their infused signature grilled cheese vodka, tomato ice cube, muddled basil and balsamic reduction with bits of prosciutto. We have to admit that it's interesting but just the thing to awaken your palate. Beecher's doors first opened in Seattle in 2003. Eight years later they opened another store in the Flatiron District. The Flagship Cheese, which is a semi-hard cow's milk cheese with a nutty flavor, and Fig Jam grilled cheese is beyond delicious, as well as their grilled cheese and ham. Simple, yet satisfying.

What's better than a grilled cheese with Vermont Cheddar and Gruyere? Let's think, what about about one with bacon and pork belly added to it? Yes, please. This grilled cheese is definitely steering towards the pork lover and we are okay with that. It's flavorful and comforting with the salty, fatty meat and creamy cheese combo.

Yes, melted dairy on wheels and we consider it one of the best. Chevre, Habanero Hot Sauce and Pickled Carrots is just enough to pick you up on a dull day. The Delicate Cheese with truffle butter, truffle cheese and caramelized shallots, might be worth the $10 for all those truffle lovers. With Morris Truck only using the best cheese purveyors like Murray's and Landaff, it is no surprise their sandwiches ooze with high quality.
