What It Cost: $16.50
What We Thought:
Fancy grilled cheese sandwiches. Every college student's dream come true.
Wait a second. A grilled cheese sandwich is the one thing you KNOW how to make. So why the heck are you going to pay for someone else to make one for you? Well, that's what we wanted to find out. First off, Melty Way has some fun interior decor that looks like some sketches you would draw on a table during a super boring group meeting (in the best kind of way).
Owen ordered the turkey and bacon sandwich, which seemed pretty classic. The cheese was pretty good, and there was plenty of turkey, though we were a little disappointed with the bacon. The menu called it "scrumptious bacon," but as you can see, it's more like piddly bacon. Anyway, the sourdough bread was good - Owen especially loved this since I only seem to ever buy wheat bread, and I gotta admit, grilled cheese on white bread just has that special quality to it.
Tomato basil soup = not as good as Zupas, still good for dipping sandwich into, seemed overpriced.
My sandwich was definitely the best part of the meal - I loooove pineapple, so these was a big hit for me. Plus, who makes pineapple preserves at home anyway, right? So this is definitely something I wouldn't normally produce on my own. I loved that it came with extra pineapple to dip your sandwich in, and it was overall rather delicious.
What You Should Do: Make that sandwich at home. Sorry folks. It WAS good. But really nothing outstanding or amazing, and at $6/sandwich, you could make like three of them at home instead. They are coming to Orem, and I still think that they would be a fun place to check out once or twice, but honestly, how hard is it to slap some sandwich fixings together?
