The 8 Best Grilled Cheeses In Louisville


You never outgrow grilled cheese sandwiches – they just get more epic.

Toast On Market

Toast offers FOUR different kinds of grilled cheese sandwiches, which are all served with a bowl of roasted tomato soup.

If you like it hot, try the Spicy Chipotle Grilled Cheese – with sharp cheddar, sliced tomatoes, red onions , cilantro, smokey chipotle and molasses. The Garlic Cheddar Grilled Cheese is another option if that’s more your thing, which is filled with roasted garlic shallots, tomato slices and sharp cheddar. The Three Cheese Grilled Cheese is probably the most traditional route you can take, served with Mozzarella, baby Swiss and Provolone cheese.

If the tomato soup isn’t enough for you on its own, get it on your sandwich, too. The Caprese is served with sliced tomatoes mozzarella and provolone cheeses with fresh basil pesto.

Mussel and Burger Bar

Mussel and Burger Bar is known for its epic burgers (and mussels), but it is a little-known fact that their grilled cheese is, in fact, epic as well. This grilled cheese is served with braised ribs, GruyereA�cheese, caramelized onions on a toasted brioche bread that is made in-house.

Mussel and Burger Bar graced Louisville by opening its doors only just a few years ago, and we’ve been in love ever since. Its innovative menu and larger-than-life burgers keeps the masses coming back for more.
