The Glazed – Cheese and Tomato Co.

Their short menu centers on the glory of cheese. With only five items to choose from, we suggest you start off with The Glazed–it’s a unique rendition of the usual mozza and cheddar grilled cheese sandwich but they use glazed doughnut halves instead of bread. Of course we won’t stop you from choosing the Classic, the Breakfast (comes with jam), Tomato Basil, and Bacon Mushroom—all sandwiched with mozzarella and cheddar, and the ingredients its name implies.
