  • You won't regret the Italian!
  • It seemed like a great idea, then I realized it's just grilled cheese :( Portions aren't big plus it's on the salty side for my taste. But there was a bright spot with the corn chowder - tasty.
  • The mission is awesome. Jalapeo grilled cheese with corn chowder delicious!
  • Try to combo: fontina and provolone grilled cheese with tomato on sourdough with a side of Italian sausage and pepper soup. Yum!
  • Grilled cheese.
  • Friendly team members and clean restaurant facility
  • Classic with jalapeos. Soup is not essential or recommended. Sandwich is killer.
  • Well dressed fries: yes! I inhaled these things before I could take a picture. Bad place for a diet
  • All things cheese here. Beware the heavy smoke of melted cheese during the lunch rush. Have a seat outside to avoid the madness and smoke.
  • The Mac Daddy is amazing!

  • Cheese + Bacon = Love
  • No more free bacon. They changed the menu too.
