Daughter was hungry and cold and not in the mood to wait in line so we looked up what was close and came here. Very happy with our melts, tater tots, soups, and drinks. Hit the spot without breaking the bank. Great comfort food!

This is a good option for a very quick bite at a decent price. The grilled cheese was pretty standard. The cheesy tots were disappointing. We were expecting melted cheese, but instead received soggy tots in a plastic-y cheese sauce - just not my style....More

Stopped in after arriving from Chicago on the way to the MoMA. I'd checked it out before going and it looked like a good lunch spot. We were not disappointed. We split a sandwich and salad; there's a wide variety to choose from. The sandwich...More

Needed quick lunch while on business calls in the city. I beat the rush at 11:50am. After 12pm there was a line and wait for tables to open. The sandwich was tasty and so were the "tots". Great selection of grilled cheese sandwiches. Next time...More

I wasn't really hungry but felt like I needed a little something so stopped in here for tomato soup. It was pretty much like soup out of a can - no crackers, croutons, spices, nada.

Great atmosphere and trendy spot to have lunch, dinner or a snack. Great toasted sandwiches. I had the fried chicken with a side of a dill pickle. Everything is freshly prepared and cooked fresh. Well worth the visit 😳

I'd like to consider myself the queen of all things cheese. Needless to say when I even saw the name of this place I was all in! My friends and I are all cheese lovers so naturally we knew this was the place for lunch....More

The sandwiches were great and fast. The fried chicken sandwich had a lot of slaw and was good. The burger melt had a lot of meat. The buffalo blue was excellent. I highly recommend for a quick but high quality meal.

The shop was super busy when I came in for lunch on a Tuesday but the line moves quickly. I had the Wisco which is sharp cheddar, brick spread, bacon and tomato on white bread and an order of their shop tots (regular tater tots)....More

This is a good place to go for comfort food. They have several different types of grilled cheese. My favorite is the classic with tomato, onions, and bacon. The tater tots are good. I liked the lemonade better when it was fountain not bottle.
