Les Trois Garçons

1084, rue Saint-Jean, Québec, QC G1R 1S4

Though Les Trois Garçons is known for its hamburgers and bistro menu, you don't want to miss their grilled cheese sandwich. Loaded with 1608 cheese, caramelized onions and bacon, this grilled cheese sandwich will leave you craving more. But don't stop by too late in the day – grilled cheese is only offered on the breakfast menu so make sure you come in early if you need a cheesy fix.

Resto La Mama Grilled Cheese

1804 1re Avenue, Québec, QC G1L 3L9

The '50s-diner look and grilled cheese-only menu are what makes this restaurant a hit. With a rockabilly feel, this restaurant boasts a dozen or more sandwiches named after '50s and '60s icons. Try the Marilyn Monroe if you're feeling nutty or the Chuck Berry if you're feeling spicy. Whatever you choose, you'll have a one-of-a-kind experience.

Café Restaurant Au Bonnet D'Âne

298, rue Saint-Jean, Québec, QC G1R 1P1

If you're walking around the city looking for a quaint place to satisfy your craving for cheese, Au Bonnet is the place to be. With an assortment of local and French cheeses and various toppings, their sandwiches are just as exciting as they are fresh.

Bistro Hortus

1190, rue Saint-Jean, Québec, QC G1R 1S6

Though this Old Town restaurant is a rotisserie at heart, they have some of the freshest grilled cheese in the city. Made with homemade bread and stuffed with locally raised chicken roasted in house, Tournebrouche knows how to quell those cheese cravings. If you like to dip your cheese in assorted condiments, try the homemade ketchup or mayonnaise to complete your sandwich. Whatever you do, save room for dessert though; the daily selection of crème brûlée is to die for.

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
You don’t have to travel to Paris to have a true fine-dining experience; you can enjoy an upscale dinner, complete with a five-course meal and fine wine, right here at home. Victoria is a fine-dining destination with an excellent reputation – where talented chefs enjoy crafting delicious gourmet dishes from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Paired with a nice cup of coffee or topped with a scoop of ice cream, pie is unbeatable comfort food. And yet it faces stiff competition from cupcakes as the city’s dessert of choice. Well, pie is fighting back with old fashioned deliciousness as well as new and tantalizing flavours.
