5 spots in Portland to get the best grilled cheese sandwiches

Jan 21 2020, 1:32 am

There’s nothing quite like a fresh-off-the-grill grilled cheese sandwich, or really just melty gooey warm cheese in general, to soothe your soul. In honor of National Cheese Lover’s Day, we’ve compiled five spots in Portland that whip up mom-approved grilled cheese sammies.

Is it a coincidence that National Cheese Lover’s Day falls on the same day as Blue Monday, considered to be the most depressing day in the year? We think not.

If you’ve ever wanted to build your own dream grilled cheese sandwich, then you’ve come to the right spot. With topping options like apple butter, caramelized onions, truffle oil, and smoked bacon, amongst others, on Grand Central Como Bread with Tillamook Cheddar, you’ll be in grilled cheese heaven before you know it.

If you like your grilled cheese sammies a little fancy, then the Grilled Cheese Grill has got your back. Our personal favorite is their Jalapeño Popper, a delicious creation of grilled jalapeños, pepper jack, cream cheese, and corn tortilla chips on sourdough.
