Clearly not a place for lactose intolerants, Mission Cheese functions just as well for a quick solo lunch as it does for something longer, larger, and probably boozier. Get a fancier than average grilled cheese (we’re partial to the California Gold), or go big with a cheese flight. Knowledgeable staff always have great recommendations, and if it’s that kind of meal, can recommend wine to go along with the board.
