Served with a side and with extras like fried eggs or bacon, it’s hard to go wrong with a classic like this, and in a classic restaurant like Anties and Uncles.

Melt Grilled Cheese

Another exclusive grilled cheese restaurant, Melt, located at 300 Richmond W is the go-to stop for ooey gooey goodness. They have great, fresh made sandwiches and poutine just waiting for you to get your craving satisfied and their grilled cheese is something to marvel at. From their breakfast “Good Morning Melt” (with cheddar, an egg, tater tots and mayo) to the more elaborate “Bacon Avacado” (cheddar, herb and garlic cream cheese, bacon, avocado, tomatoes, red onion, spinach and chipotle aioli), it’s hard to find something to dislike, and they certainly cater to any kind of eater. Whether you’re looking for something simple and delicious or something fun and elaborate, Melt has you covered.

Erin Cardone

Born on the Prairies, Erin Cardone grew up knowing there was more to life than canola fields and AAA Alberta Angus. So she escaped, living in Europe and Australia, white-knuckling it through plates of calf brains and raw horse meat, and learning languages she can't remember anymore. After a stint as a jaded, skeptical journalist, she changed tack and began writing rather awesome blogs and showing businesses that advertising is dead, so long live social media, with her businesses Legendary Social Media. She now splits her time between various Canadian cities, Costa Rica and wherever else the wind blows.
