When the dark and dreary days take over Vancouver, there’s nothing quite like a melty, oozy grilled cheese sandwich to cure those Winter blues.

Check out these local spots serving up incredible versions of everybody’s favourite comfort meal.

Best Grilled Cheese In Vancouver


Mom’s Grilled Cheese Food Truck


The popular food truck can usually be found near the Vancouver Art Gallery (Howe and Robson). Their grilled cheese is so good, it’s almost as if your mom made it. They always serve up a scrumptious daily special. Try the Jackson 3—the triple threat has brie, boursin, and gruyere. Or you can create your own grilled cheese masterpiece by selecting your own bread, cheese and deluxe ingredients (pickles, banana peppers, avocado, double smoked bacon) to kick it up a notch.



You have to try their gooey grilled cheese with melted mozzarella, gruyere, emmenthal and white cheddar cheeses on a fresh baguette. They have locations downtown (1100 Burrard), Kits (2272 West 4th), Mount Pleasant (3096 Main), North Vancouver (3 Lonsdale Ave), and Point Grey (4434 West 10th).

The Greedy Pig


Their classic grilled cheese is perfect for a rainy day. Enjoy a sandwich made up of Swiss, cheddar, mozzarella and smoked gouda cheeses on sourdough bread. Add bacon or ham to get your protein in there. Check them out at 307 West Cordova Street in Gastown.


The Red Wagon Café


A Vancouver favourite, hit up this café for their grilled cheese and smoky tomato soup. The sandwich is filled with cheddar, Swiss and goat cheese on grilled brioche. Give it a try at 2296 East Hastings Street.

Meat & Bread


The Cambie Street location of the favourite sandwich shop serves up a tasty grilled cheese. Enjoy the classic sandwich with aged white cheddar and shaved red onion. Grab a bite at 370 Cambie Street.
