Appropriate spots for a meltdown

best grilled cheese miami!

A sandwich that tastes like your childhood? It sounds cheesy, but that’s why we love these classic and hybrid versions.

Order: The Ooey Gooey, sharp white cheddar lodged between two thick pieces of white butter bread ($6.50).
On the side: Accompanying chips work wonders for catching drips of oozing cheese.
Where: Crumb on Parchment, 3930 NE 2nd Ave. (305-572-9444).

Order: Adult Grilled Cheeses, like Swiss, fried egg, bacon, sun-dried tomato, oregano, and olive oil on sourdough or Havarti, goat cheese, prosciutto, tomato, and arugula on multigrain ($7.95).
On the side: A salad — to give it that grown-up edge.
Where: Angelina’s Coffee & Yogurt, 3451 NE 1st Ave., ste. 102b (305-424-9129).

Order: White cheddar on a whole wheat baguette off the kids’ menu ($5.95; the trip down memory lane is worth the extra $2).
On the side: Sea salt-flecked fries pair perfectly with tangy ketchup.
Where: The Cafe at Books & Books, 927 Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach (305-695-8898).

Order: A Triple Decker (cheddar, American, Brie, and Swiss on four slices of white bread); enlist friends to help you finish it ($14).
On the side: Bogart the side of tomato soup for yourself.
Where: Serendipity 3, 1102 Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach (305-403-2210).

Order: The custom-made diner-style grilled cheese. Mix and match white, wheat, marble, rye, cheddar, American, provolone, and Swiss ($6.95).
On the side: Skinny fries for a gluttonously good lunch.
Where: Roasters’ n Toasters, 525 Arthur Godfrey Rd., Miami Beach (305-531-7691).

Order: One bread and one cheese option as the foundation of your architectural creation from the mobile shop ($6).
On the side: Forgo sides — keep building upward with pay-as-you-go additions like Auricchio aged provolone, cave-aged Gruyere, applewood smoked bacon, and beefsteak tomato.
Where: Truck location at cheeseme.com.

Order: Brie and apple butter between two slices of marble rye ($8.95).
On the side: Pasta salad with sun-dried tomatoes.
