Cass Corridor’s new cheese and chocolate shop Mongers’ Provisions is upgrading its offerings this winter with a lineup of fancy grilled cheese sandwiches. Co-owner William Werner tells Eater that the retail cheese counter at 4240 Cass Ave. (Suite 111) is now serving pressed sandwiches all day long for customers on-the-go.
The list of grilled cheese will rotate throughout the year, but currently features four sandwiches served on slices of Avalon International Breads’ farm loaf. Look out for options like the pizza-style Cheezza! with Calabro old fashioned mozzarella, pepperoni, and tomato. There’s also a sandwich made with Instagram’s favorite melty cheese — raclette. That one is loaded up with a combination of Better Made potato chips and cornichon pickles. The gooey cheese sandwiches range from $7 to $10. Mongers is also showcasing its other specialty — chocolate — in beverage form with (insert raised pinkies here) a single-origin drinking chocolate.
Additionally, beginning on Wednesday, February 5, Mongers is getting into the beer and wine sales game. The company plans to offer a small selection of bottles to-go and will be giving regular tastings in the store very soon.
Werner and his business partner Zach Berg founded their charcuterie and chocolate business out of Ferndale-based butcher shop Farm Field Table in 2017 and expanded to the larger Cass Avenue store in December. The new location sells imported cheeses, an extensive variety of chocolate bars, oils, olives, and charcuterie.
