The Best Grilled Cheese Sandwich in Toronto

The best grilled cheese sandwiches in Toronto are far from Wonderbread and Kraft Singles dorm room creations. Multiple kinds of ooey-gooey cheese are melted between high quality bread and set off by other classic fillings like tomato, onion, apple and ketchup. Despite their epic qualities, these sammies are often the cheapest thing on the menu.

Here are the best grilled cheese sandwiches in Toronto.
