Cheat Day: Seriously Good Gourmet Grilled Cheese

Cheat Day Vancovuer

There’s a new restaurant in town called Cheat Day. It’s a cute little cafe that lets their customers indulge in gourmet grilled cheese. Cheat Day is a clever name since most people tend to try to go on a diet but reserve one day out of the week as their “cheat day” to indulge in whatever they want. In this case, its grilled cheese.

I came here during lunch hour with Magz. We have cheat day every day of the week, so we were not worried about our waistlines.

When we went inside, the space is quite narrow but there are seats on the side. The cool thing about the tables are they are made of wheel barrows.

On the left of the wall is this sick murals. I thought the bear and the little penguins were really cute.

On the right side are tons of toy soldiers and tanks. Never thought I would see that done before.

More toy soldiers. As you can tell, the interior is very playful and perfect for hipsters.
They sell Phillips Soda – Intergalactic Root Beer and Sparkmouth Ginger Soda.

They even have little plants at their tables. Ok ok, enough of the cool little decorations, lets dig into the food.

Peach Brie ($8) has brie, caramelized onions, peach chunks and peach jam on your choice of bread. We had it on brioche bread and it made it taste so amazing. This grilled cheese is the most gooiest  grilled cheese I’ve ever had in Vancouver. Magz had a fun time eating it as it dripped on her hands and onto the table.

She was in heaven for the duration of the lunch hour.

Bacon Grilled Cheese ($9) comes with smoked gouda, mushrooms, caramelized onions, arugula, roasted garlic and bacon on brioche bread.

The exterior has a perfect crust and a gooey centre. When you bite down into it, it’s music to your ears.

This grilled cheese isn’t as gooey as the Peach Brie Grilled Cheese, but is still very stringy as you bite into it. I loved it.

Overall, we had a great experience here during lunch and was not disappointed all. Will definitely be returning.
