Observe this hallowed holiday (April 12) with a traditional helping of cheese sandwiched between slices of bread.

Maybe it’s the ooey gooey cheese, maybe it’s the soft, buttered slices of bread or maybe it’s the combination of the two. Eighty-seven percent of Americans truly enjoy the melty magic of a classic grilled cheese sandwich, according to NationalToday. On April 12, join the majority and celebrate National Grilled Cheese Day with your favorite sandwich in Milwaukee, or maybe try a new one!


While the Kimcheese may not be well known around the city, it certainly takes the title of most unique grilled cheese sandwich. Three cheeses – American, Swiss and provolone – collide with Korean kimchi to create an unforgettable twist on the grilled cheese sandwich.


American, cheddar, Pepper jack, provolone and Swiss cheeses come together, creating a five-cheese masterpiece at Club Charlies. You can add Gouda for $1 and have six cheeses on that gutbuster. Choose cottage cheese for a side and you may just find yourself in a cheese coma.


It’s the classic café choice of soup and a sandwich. Comet Café offers a blend of American, mozzarella and provolone cheese melted between two sourdough slices of bread and served with a cup of steamy creamy tomato soup. Flavor your plain grilled cheese with tomatoes, bacon or ham for a small fee.


As one of the few restaurants offering a white cheddar, Colby and Swiss combination, Elsa’s stands out as a favorite when it comes to Milwaukee’s go-to grilled cheese destinations. The sandwich is finished off with tomatoes and thick bacon slices.  


Featuring two grilled cheese options, Mo’s Irish Pub knows well how to do the classic cheese sandwich. Get spicy with the Jalapeno Grilled Cheese. It’s a loaded sandwich including cheddar, Pepper jack and mozzarella cheeses with bacon, tomato and avocado grilled between two slices of jalapeno cheddar bread. Keep it simple with the Triple Grilled Cheese including cheddar, American and Swiss cheeses with bacon, tomato and avocado grilled between two slices of sourdough bread. Both sandwich options served with “piping hot tomato soup.”
