Nick and Carina had seen my comments on their Facebook fan page enough times, and when they mentioned they tried putting Alma Chocolate's caramel sauce in a grilled cheese, I said enough was enough. Gotta get my lazy rear out there.
The Cheese Plate also carries vegan and gluten-free options, so virtually anyone can dine here.

There are four options on the grilled cheese (two of them vegan), and I ordered the one with local aged cheddar, blue cheese, caramelized onion and fig jam on levain bread. Yes, fig jam.

I got a cup of cheddar ale soup with my grilled cheese (otherwise, it's $5 for a small and $7 for a large). The cheddar provides a slightly creamy texture and a nice bite. I'm still able to detect the ale used in here. So delicious. The cart-made croutons on top started crunchy and softened in the warm soup.

I sampled some of the Masala Pop savory popcorn, which is seasoned with some light Indian spices sprinkled on top. More palate-pleasing snacks!

The Cheese Plate recently competed in the Kelly's Jelly Challenge, which concluded early last week. I'll have a separate blog post at a future date that will cover the challenge more in depth. For purposes of this blog post, I will say that The Cheese Plate put up one heck of a dish and frankly, it helped in getting this cart over as one of my elite spots to hit up.
