Grilled sandwiches are comfort food. The girls and I love having them for lunch on the weekends. We can sit back and watch TV together while eating.

Fine and causal dining is great and all, but what is also great is when you find a hidden gem that serves up food that reminds you of sitting in your living room while eating your favourite sandwich. Except, The Cheesy Pickup kicks it up a notch or two with their awesome selection of grilled cheese sandwiches.

Our Lunch

Rachel had the “Up Your Kilt” grilled cheese sandwich, with a side of homemade Mac & Cheese.
