Milkhouse’s Coming Soon sign from Suburban Station.
Tommy Guest, the owner and proprietor of Milkhouse, the grilled cheese and ice cream spot in Suburban Station confirms with us that he is taking over the just closed Matyson BYOB at 37 South 19th Street.
This will be the second location for Milkhouse, and will offer Guest some flexibility when compared with the original. There will be more room for seating, and gas grills, instead of the electric grills he’s limited to in the train station.
If all goes well, the second Milkhouse will open by the end of August.

Collingswood family institution, The Pop Shop has opened in Medford. This second location takes over the former Farmers and Mechanics Bank at the corner of Main and Bank Streets. The inside is very reminiscent of the Collingswood location with a vintage soda fountain feel.
This Saturday, February 28th will be the official grand opening with live music outside from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and an official ribbon cutting ceremony set for 12:30 p.m. Inside, balloon artists will be on hand to entertain.
The menu will be the same as the Collingswood location with plenty of milkshakes and grilled cheeses to choose from.

Brian Freedman reviews Meltkraft, the grilled cheese stand that’s part of the Valley Shephard Creamery in the Reading Terminal. The grilled cheeses are of course glorious, after all you can choose bacon fat or duck fat for the sandwich to be grilled in. Freedman aslo provides tips on how to resurrect the sandwich should you decide to get it to go.

Put down the white bread and step away from the Kraft singles—we’ve found a list of stuffed grilled cheese sandwiches so loaded and gluttonous that they definitely aren’t your average comfort food must-haves.
These aren’t your mom’s grilled cheeses, and you know what? They aren’t even sandwiches you want to tell your mom about because you know she’ll start jabbering about silly things like cholesterol and pesky little heart attacks.
