One of Appleton’s newest restaurants specializes in all things grilled cheese. Tom+Chee recently opened off of Cty Rd KK in Appleton and had an instant buzz. Whether you prefer amped up fancy versions with veggies and specialty meats, or if you’re perfectly happy with a good ol’ classic cheddar, they’ve got options for everyone.
My son and I went to see what all the hype was about and we were not disappointed. I opted to build my own; fresh mozzarella, tomato and basil pesto on wheat berry bread with a small cup of their basil tomato soup. So delicious! My son kept it simple; classic cheddar grilled cheese with chips. He said, and I quote, “This is the best grilled cheese I’ve ever had!”
Tom+Chee aims to use fresh quality ingredients. They roast their own meats and make all their sauces, dressings and soups from scratch. If you’re feeling adventurous, a must-try is their grilled cheese donut. Yes I said donut. A classic glazed donut sliced and grilled with your choice of cheese, or choose from their list of specialty grilled donuts; like the Blueberry Blue that was featured on an episode of Man V. Food! If you’re feeling really ambitious, try your luck at their Baker’s Dozen Challenge: 13 Grilled Cheese Donuts! They also have plenty to offer for lighter fare, and gluten free and vegan/vegetarian options as well!
