A quick service grilled cheese restaurant offering high-end gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches accompanied with tatter tots, soup, or salad. 

We make everything in house—from our short ribs to our caramelized onions to our summer time gazpacho. At night we have a busy full bar—a wide selection of sandwiches and lots of delicious cheeses served up by our famous cheesemonger Sophie.

We teach classes in cheese making, cater, hold private events and generally make people smile all day long. Our shop is cool, fun and always happy and tasty. Every aspect of our culture is geared towards the customer experience overseen by our operations partner Doug Abedje.

We buy our ingredients locally—our fresh baked bread is delivered daily fresh every day from Lyon Bakery —our bacon and chorizo come from Stachowski’s in Georgetown—our gluten free bread from Goldilocks—we feature local distilleries, breweries, cheese makers and farmers.

GCDC exhibits art work from community artists, supports local and national foundations and is dedicated to the well being of its employees.
