The Best 4 Cheese Toasties in Dublin

Cure the hangover with a hot melty treat this afternoon


There's something so delicious about two slices of toasted bread, with melted cheese oozing out the middle.

Cheese toasties are the ultimate comfort food, hankered after by anyone doing their best to 'eat clean' and devoured by hungover people everywhere. Some eating establishments may try to dress them up by flinging sun-dried tomatoes in them, or drizzling balsamic all over them, but we know – if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Here's our top four cheese toasties across the city... Reckon we've overlooked your favourite spot for a cheese toastie? Be sure to let us know where you think Dublin's best cheese toasties are in the comments.

4. Café en Swan

Hilariously named toasties served on batch loaf with a bag of Tayto, what more could you want? The café is housed in MVP right beside Harold's Cross Bridge so you can have a nice little stroll along the canal afterwards.

3. Fallon & Byrne's Croque Monsieur

This grilled cheese and ham sandwich is so hefty you mightn't be able to finish it, but the Gruyère they use is just so damn good!


2. Grogan's

Perched on the side of South William Street, it's the perfect spot grab a pint and a toastie, and watch the world go by. Their ham and cheese toasties are such a massive hit they're eaten instantly, meaning that they're practically impossible to get a photo of.

1. Bibi's Café
