Toastie Bucket List: The Five Best Spots To Get Your Fix Of Melted Cheese Goodness

Éadaoin Fitzmaurice

There’s something so delicious about two slices of toasted bread, with stringy, melted cheese oozing from the middle.

Cheese toasties are the ultimate comfort food.

They’re ideal for the hungry, the hungover and the taste seekers alike.

Happiness in food form tbh.

Here’s our top four cheese toasties across the city…

Reckon we’ve overlooked your favourite spot? Be sure to let us know what you think we missed in the comments.

5. Nice N Cheesy

Nice n Cheesy have made all of my cheese toastie dreams come true. These sandwiches are oozing with decadent cheese and full of taste.

Comfort food at its finest.

4. Clanbrassil Coffee Shop

The Kimchi Cheese Toastie here makes of all my pickled cheese dreams come true. I’d rarely finish an entire sandwich and I found myself picking the crumbs off my plate after this one.

The café also prepare freshly baked goods each morning including a delectable Paris Brest. If you’ve never heard of these (how have you lived) they are a nutty take on an éclair. It’s kind of like the inside of a Kinder Bueno on a sweet, crunchy pastry topped with icing sugar and almonds a.k.a heaven.

This cute spot is definitely one to check out whether you’re just grabbing a quick coffee to go or you want to sit and have a hearty lunch.

3. Meltdown

Meltdown is Dublin’s newest communal pop-up that serves melted cheese madness, artisan coffee and wine.

They take the wonderful Irish delicacy, that is the cheese toasty, to a whole new level with a range of drool-worthy flavours.

There are five decadent sandwiches on offer at the moment, each one cheesier than the last. They even serve a pulled pork toasty loaded with mac’n’cheese, omg.

Cheese toastie GOALS.

2. Grogan’s

Grogan’s is one of the most traditional pubs in the city and I literally beam with pride every time I’m in there as it still manages to keep that old Irish culture and charm.

Behind the bar you will see a fridge with pre-made ham and cheese or cheese and tomato sandwiches. They may be simple but believe me, have one of these with a pint of Archway by your side, with its clear golden body and early hop aroma with light pear and malt sweetness, and you’ll never appreciate a lunch more.

1. Bibi’s Café

These guys are the winner purely for the pan-toasted sambos they do, the heat seals in the flavour making sure they’re delicious the whole way through.
