Cafe Muse

Grilled Cheese

The Café Muse grilled cheese sandwich is a combination of three cheeses – havarti, fontina and fresh mozzarella – that provide a unique blend of flavors.  All of the ingredients are sourced locally and are as fresh as possible, including the basil, tomatoes and organic bread.  But the special ingredient is the honey, which is used sparingly to provide a background taste – not too overpowering or too sweet.

The grilled three cheese sandwich first received national attention from Esquire Magazine in March of 2008.  It was included in a story featuring “the best sandwiches in America.”

After reading the Esquire Magazine article, Gayle King of The Oprah Winfrey Show decided that she needed to try the sandwich herself.   King came to Royal Oak and interviewed Chef Greg Reyner for the show.  Café Muse was featured in Oprah’s “Sandwich Showdown” in June of 2008.  King raved about the grilled three cheese sandwich on the show and gave it her highest rating – a five.

In our hometown of Detroit, Sylvia Rector, food columnist for The Detroit Free Press, named it the “best grilled cheese sandwich in Metro Detroit.”  She went on to say, “We do adore this almost sensual cheese sandwich.”

And in April of 2011 the Café Muse grilled cheese sandwich continued its reputation by being named “one of the perfect grilled cheese sandwiches in America.” by Reader’s Digest.
