While Olympic athletes may not be chowing down on gooey, greasy, golden grilled cheese sandwiches, visitors to Vancouver, and more specific Squamish, Canada are flocking to Grilled Fromage Diner. The self-proclaimed “cheesiest place on earth” grilled cheese diner has a sandwich for anyone’s cheese taste. From the basic “Missionary” sandwich made with butter and Kraft singles to the “High Roller” made with lobster, smoked gruyere, garlic butter on sourdough, there are a total of 57 varieties to devour with a side of cheese puffs.
Colin Bush opened his kitchy diner in October 2009 with modest traffic but perfect timing regarding the countdown to the Olympic rush from Whistler, Vancouver. Now open for “brekkie” and offering croissant sandwiches business should be booming.
Reviews have been on the positive side regarding taste and ambiance (a smattering of nostalgia on every wall) pricing and overwhelming offerings may leave some patrons wishing they had just cooked at home. Pricing varies from about $4.00 for the “Missionary” to over $15.00 for the “High Roller”. For more on the Grilled Fromage, click on the link below.
