A chalkboard sign hanging in this small shop reads, “Just like you, the sandwich grew up.” Who knew grilled cheese could be so gourmet? The laid-back staff patiently waits and supplies complimentary treats (sorbet, chips, or carrots) as customers chew over a dizzying array of grilled-cheese specialties, ranging from “the classic” to meat-and-vegetable combos. Locals from nearby boutiques and galleries stream in for lunch, and at night, folks lounge around munching on sandwiches and playing Connect Four. Sweet-potato fries and icecream sandwiches earn major points with the kids.Recommended Dishes
