Scanning through my timeline a picture of an amazing looking sandwich, posted by my friend Renee from her Mag Lab ladies lunch, caught my eye. I asked where she had eaten the bacon and Brie grilled cheese, and she responded with the menu for Merv’s Melt Shop. I found the address and was on my way to grilled cheese nirvana.
Merv’s is located just south of Gaines Street at 825 Railroad Ave. A wide aqua stripe slashed the dark grey building and a large covered patio fronted the street. To the left natural covered wood sloped at a low angle and was punctuated by two large garage doors. Patrons sat under umbrellas eating lunch and the parking lot was packed. I pulled around back where I was lucky to locate a spot. For more on Merv’s Malt Shop read the full review on Tallahassee.com.
