Cheese, how do I love thee? Let me count the wheys…
What’s not to love about cheese? It’s delicious, nutritious (ish) and versatile. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of the best places, and ways, to enjoy cheese in Manchester.
1. Grilled at Northern Soul Grilled Cheese
The UK’s first gourmet grilled cheese restaurant, serving pimped up grilled cheese sandwiches, mac ‘n’ cheese and shakes, all set to a soul soundtrack.

2. Melted at Bøck Bière Café
The restaurant that brought us the Sunday roast fondue (where you dip everything in a massive vat of red wine gravy) also boasts an incredible pizza fondue. A cheesy marinara lava, into which you can dip dough waffles and all your favourite pizza toppings, including; pepperoni, chicken, halloumi, jalapeno, chorizo, mushrooms, pineapple.

Toasties are the ultimate convenience food, all you need is bread, cheese and fire and you’ve got yourself a tasty sandwich.

7. With a juicy burger at Brewski
If there’s one place in town that screams cheesy, it’s North American-inspired joint Brewski.
