Super breakfast spot in Ely. Loved the atmosphere and friendliness of the staff. Coffee is super strong for my test , but everything else was excellent.

Cozy little home environment and decent outdoor eating area. The waitresses and cashiers we're very nice and accommodating. The grilled cheese was pretty good. I really liked the tomato basil soup, it was some of the better tomato soup that I've had in a while.


Delicious sandwiches in a cute setting. The Turkey Bacon Avocado on Wild Rice Bread was outstanding. Large amount of REAL turkey meat, it was so filling I could only finish half. So glad I decided to try the bread, great flavor and texture. It was an unusually hot day and it was very busy but the two ladies working were trying hard to keep everyone happy.

We love this place when we visit Ely. Unusual grilled cheese creations and great food. We did like it better ordering non-pressured from our table vs. upon entry. But the food is so good and worth stopping in.


Very average. They don't really do anything special with the grilled cheese sandwiches. I wish you could customize it with special cheeses but it's not really an option. If you have kids this is probably great if not there are other options in Ely.

Absolutely make a point to stop here. Both the Turkey Bacon Avocado Club Melt and the Bacon Mac and Cheese sandwiches were exceptional! It's tough to truly stand out in this niche. Gator's definitely does.


Really enjoyed the Grilled Cheese Emporium. Had the daily special, a four cheese sandwich on whole grain bread with a side of tomato basil soup. Very tasty and filling. There's a model train that runs along a track near the ceiling, which is quite a surprise. Ask the staff to give it a turn around the track.

Can a grilled cheese sandwich get 5 stars? Yes it can. They are made absolutely perfect. Coleslaw was also really good. Would I recommend it. Yes I would. Tomato soup tasted great. Only thing I wish was that they would be more on top of refills and drinks. But besides that we will be going back. Thanks for a great sandwich.
