If you ask us, nothing beats a hangover like grilled cheese. Salty, oozing with gooey cheese, and chock full of carbs – it’s guaranteed to sort out any Saturday morning slowness. Something about melted cheese, butter and bread just works together wonderfully. With Bristol’s dedicated grilled cheese food truck, For Mice & Men, the build-your-own menu means they’ll make it exactly the way you want.
Started by Vic and Tim, For Mice & Men has served up the gooiest grilled cheese toasties at Bristol’s best markets since 2015. They can churn them out quick too, so you’ll never be left wanting come rain or shine. Throughout the month, you’ll find them handing out hundreds of sandwiches an hour at the likes of Tobacco Factory, Finzels Reach, Temple Quay and Harbourside.
“Vic can cook grilled cheese faster than anyone in the world… in the world of people I know,” said Tim. “She can make up to 96 sandwiches in an hour!” Also according to Tim, For Mice & Men’s build-your-own menu gives hungry and hungover customers a mix of 12,000 options. We haven’t check his math, but you can if you like:

Right or wrong, choice is still a key factor at For Mice & Men. Using only locally sourced cheeses – like Cheddar, Colston Bassett Stilton, Gorwydd Caerphilly and Camembert – you can add an abundance of toppings to your grilled cheesetoo. Everything from smoked bacon and grilled chicken to olives and gherkins. While from the home-smoked cheddar (over whiskey oak for more than four hours) to handmade butter, the team can also ensure top-quality flavour with every mouthful.
If too much choice in the morning strains your brain, For Mice & Men have some signature specials to suggest instead. Expect epic flavours like their Huevos Rancheros cheese toastie filled with West Country cheddar, free range eggs, pico de gallo, jalapeños and smoked bacon. While veggie options include the Frenchy (camembert, green olives and red onion); and the classic cheese and tomato (West Country farmhouse cheddar and vine tomato with the addition of homemade aioli).
Every day is a gouda day since For Mice And Men opened its stall. Whether you’re peckish before work or in need of a hangover cure or both, a cheese toastie ensures a perfect start to your day.
