Celebrate National Grilled Cheese Day at these 5 London spots

There’s nothing better than a load of cheese melted and toasted onto some crispy bread!

And here in London there’s a lot of opportunities to get your hands on a tasty treat this National Grilled Cheese Day, April 12th.

Coming from the French version, a “Croque Monsieur”, the grilled cheese has been served in bars and pubs since the early 1900’ and it wasn’t until the 60’s that the top piece of bread was added to the sandwich!

Here’s our top 5 spots in London to enjoy a grilled cheese….
