Everyone loves a mean sandwich. Sandwiches are amazing because you can customize them to your taste and basically do whatever to them. A hamburger can be a sandwich but so can a hotdog. They're honestly a God given gift that oftentimes are way too unappreciated. With that being said, grilled cheese sandwiches are a staple in American culture and that's because they're amazing.

Fortunately, Ottawa has some restaurants that are home to the most epic grilled cheese sandwiches you'll try! For the full list of the best Ottawa restaurants to order your next grilled cheese sandwich, keep reading.
