Enjoy Grilled Cheese Month in Montreal

Here is a dish that still has not been celebrated enough, and we have to thank L’Gros Luxe and Le Cheese for having remedied the situation by creating the Grilled Cheese Month. The four locations of L'Gros Luxe and the Casse-Croûte Le Cheese on Monkland will showcase a different sandwich every day in November! Why not also head over to one of these other establishments that give life to very satisfying grilled cheese?

L'Gros Luxe Mile End

1
150, rue Bernard O, Montréal, QC H2T 2K2

L’Gros Luxe is one of the names behind this grilled cheese month, for which we are very appreciative. All year round, you'll find the classic grilled cheese - to which you can add bacon, pulled pork, guacamole, steak, fish and more - and the famous poutine grilled cheese. During the month of November, try out their "grilled cheese of the moment," stacked with potato, spaghetti, melon and chorizo, figs and caramelized onions, grilled tofu...Discover all their sandwiches during November!

Le Cheese Diner / Casse Croute

5976, av Monkland, Montréal, QC H4A 1G8

L’Gros Luxe isn’t the only one to celebrate grilled cheese in all its flavours. Le Cheese Casse-Croûte, located on Monkland, offers a special “30 for 30” menu to honour Grilled Cheese month, serving a different cheese sandwich every day of the month. Check out le Casse-Croûte’s website during the month of November for more details.

La belle et la Boeuf

1616, rue Sainte-Catherine O, Montréal, QC H3H 2S7

Here they offer no less than eight varieties of grilled cheese. You can choose between simple cheddar cheese and bacon or the grilled cheese with pulled pork, onion, gruyere, smoked meat, brie and goat cheese, spicy ground beef, fresh lobster (yum) or even the King Kong: a 5oz burger with buns consisting of... two grilled cheese. You'll wipe your mouth, then be back for more.

Gibeau Orange Julep

4
7700, boul Décarie, Montréal, QC H4P 2H4

It's hard to miss this establishment on the not-so-bucolic Decarie Boulevard in the west of the island. It's the ideal place to stop for good grilled cheese in the wee hours of the morning. Orange Julep is open until 2 a.m. - till 3 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays - but be careful: it's closed on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Beautys Luncheonette

5
93, av du Mont-Royal O, Montréal, QC H2T 2S5

Of course we went to the corner of Mont-Royal and Saint-Urbain to taste the famous brunches at Beauty's, but we shouldn't overlook their grilled cheese with bacon served between two slices of Challah egg bread.

Le Dépanneur Café

6
206 rue Bernard O, Montréal, QC H2T 2K4

This Mile-End establishment that is home to many artists serves lunch, coffee, sandwiches and, of course, grilled cheese sandwiches with evocative names like the Emmenthal Débile, the Corrimangue, the Gaspézia and more. And, yes, as the name suggests, you'll actually find a small grocery store here.

Lapin Pressé

7
1309, av Laurier E, Montréal, QC H2J 1H4

This little champ located on Laurier Street offers excellent espresso and "luxury" grilled cheese carefully prepared with the help of good products from Le Fromentier, their lovely neighbour. So what will it be? Gruyère and onions? Emmenthal cheese, ham and dijon? Raclette cheese and bacon? Goat cheese and green apples? The menu changes constantly so you can discover and rediscover again and again.

Le P'Tit Cochon Santé

8
236, ch de la Grande-cote, Rosemère, QC J7A 1H4

We will leave Montreal for a moment to go for a ride on the Rosemère side, where the P’tit cochon santé is located (the Montreal restaurant has been closed since July 2015). Don't hesitate to cross the bridge of your choice to sample their grilled cheese with chorizo, roasted peppers and cheddar.

And it's a sixth time in a row for the MTLàTABLE festival, playing matchmaker between foodies and Montreal’s fine food establishments. From November 2 to 16, choose from $21, $31 or $41 multi-course meals to start your culinary journey right here in Montreal. Here’s what’s on the menu at some of the restaurants taking part.
