Specialty grilled cheese coming to Ninth Street

A specialty grilled cheese sandwich shop called Cheese Louise is slated to come to Ninth Street between J and K streets downtown as early as the beginning of April.
Ron Berger, a local veteran of the hotel industry, will be running the shop, and he said the idea is similar to a shop called The Melt in San Francisco, but will be expanded with the addition of soups and a salad bar.
“We’ll have various types of grilled cheese, with Spanish, French, Italian and American cheeses,” he said. “We’ll also have soups every day, and we might do specials with a lasagna or something.”
Opening at 7 a.m. and closing by 6 p.m., the store, located at 1009 Ninth St., will serve a breakfast selection of hot cereals such as oatmeal, fruits and pastries and an English muffin with melted cheese, among other items.
Berger said he expects lunch customers to be able to eat for between $5 and $9, depending on what they order, and breakfast customers to eat for about $5.
Beer and wine are planned to be on offer, with possible drink specials from 3 - 6 p.m.
“It’s nice for something that is quick and fresh and all of that,” building owner Mo Mohanna said. “Hopefully they’ll do good. That area is coming along. It’s happening little by little.”
The 1,500-square-foot space previously housed a sandwich shop called Crave It, and it was vacant for about four months before Berger began work on Cheese Louise.
