Where to Get Your Grilled Cheese Fix in Metro Manila

Straight ahead: cheesy goodness nobody will be able to resist

With the hustle involved in everyday life, it’s good to know you always have comfort food you can lean on. Take your pick! If you find that you’re an open book, here’s a question: what’s one comfort food item that’s quick, simple, but ultimately satisfying? It’s the classic grilled cheese, of course. 

If you’re in need of a delicious serving of grilled cheese and don’t know where to get it, turn to the list ahead. Here’s where you can get your grilled cheese fix within Metro Manila for when that craving hits.

Fat Seed Café + Roastery

Katipunan dwellers know this restaurant well—and they know it as one of the best places for comfort food. Fat Seed Café + Roastery, located at UP Town Center, is well-known for elevating everyday favorites and turning them into unforgettable meals. The biggest hits here include the Wagyu Pares, Kimchi Fried Rice with Maple Bacon Slab, and the Grilled Cheese sandwiches. You can get it in Classic (₱310), Bacon and Mango (₱360), and Triple Decker (₱450). So you get to treat yourself to a perfect pairing, this sandwich comes with tomato soup, which TFS suggests you dip your sandwich into for the ultimate grilled cheese experience.

Fat Seed Café + Roastery is located at UP Town Center, Katipunan Ave., Diliman, Quezon City.


Wildflour has long been the talk of the town for all the right reasons. The exquisite selection of hearty plates here makes every bite worth the price. While Wildflour offers an array of cheesy sandwiches, nothing beats the classic Soup, Salad, and Grilled Cheese Sandwich. This single order is simple but hits all the checkboxes that make the perfect grilled cheese: just the right kind of toasted bread and creamy cheese in between them.

Visit Wildflour at Six/NEO BGC, The Podium, Salcedo and Legaspi Villages, Greenhills Shopping Center, Rockwell Center, or Uptown Bonifacio.

Elephant Grounds

This restaurant is home to our favorite Asian dishes and must-try coffee. Brought to the Philippines from Hong Kong by The Standard Group, Elephant Grounds takes the concept of “coffee and chill” to the next level with a menu featuring the perfect food pairings. The restaurant’s Gruyere Grilled Cheese Sandwich is made with a combination of quality gruyere cheese and yellow cheddar on sourdough bread. This also comes with tomato soup so you get a savory bite every single time.

Try Elephant Grounds’ grilled cheese sandwich today at One Bonifacio High Street or The Podium.


Good, honest coffee with food that can easily put you at ease on the busiest days of the week: that’s what you can expect at YDG (Your Daily Grind). This quaint coffee establishment serves a satisfying slice of grilled cheese without the needlessly complicated add-ons. It’s a simple sandwich that offers melts-in-your-mouth cheesy goodness. Nothing is better than this, especially if you’re up for a quick yet satisfying fix in between meetings. Pair this with the YDG Lemon Cream Cold Brew for an absolutely refreshing treat.

YDG is located at Mandala Park, Mandaluyong City.

Green Pastures

Not all grilled cheeses are made equal. Some are assembled with a special intention, highlighting all-organic ingredients that come from sustainable sources to give you good, clean eats. Green Pastures boasts its circular concept that makes each food order guiltless and incredibly delicious. The restaurant’s grilled cheese, with this in mind, is made with top-quality organic ingredients and comes with a side of tomato soup and salad or potato chips.

Green Pastures serves an all-organic menu at the East Wing of Shangri-la Mall. 

Common Folk

What we love the most about Common Folk is not just its hip approach to coffee. This restaurant offers a great selection of dishes that guarantees #NoBadDays ahead. Pair your favorite coffee order here with their ultimate Say Cheese grilled cheese sandwich. This all-time favorite menu item is toasted to perfection with delicious, gooey cheese.

Drop by Common Folk in White Plains and Capitol Hills Drive.

Early Bird Breakfast Club

Early Bird has to be one of the best places to get your breakfast rice meal favorites—but then again, don’t discount their grilled cheese. Early Bird’s Ultimate Grilled Cheese comes with a combination of cheddar, mozzarella, and gruyere cheese tucked beautifully between slices of fresh toast. On the side, you’ll get a roasted tomato soup to complete your meal.

Satisfy your grilled cheese craving at Early Bird The Fort BGC, Century City Mall Makati, or Robinson’s Place Manila.
