Grilled cheese cravings will now be met at a new restaurant opening on West University Avenue, in the Roberts' Stadium Club building. Cheese Daddy will offer a variety of sandwich melts on its menu, with the option to create your own.
Prices will range from $5 to $8, and all sandwiches come with a small portion of tomato soup for dipping. Featured among the grilled cheese melts is a Grilled Cheese Doughnut -- a glazed doughnut paired with American cheese.
The founder, Andre Norman, graduated from the University of Florida in 2010 with a degree in mechanical engineering. Norman said he came up with the idea while watching the business-themed TV show “Shark Tank.”
Cheese Daddy will open sometime between late July and early August and will be open until 3 a.m. on select days during the fall and spring semesters.
Titi Lee said her café will have a European flair and an Asian twist. TiTi's Café will offer coffee, a green smoothie bar, Boba tea and 16 flavors of gelato. Grab-and-go salads and rolls also will be sold, along with bánh mì, a Vietnamese, French-baguette sandwich.
Beer, wine and sake also will be sold. The café is scheduled to open July 1 at 1232 W. University Ave., with hours from 7 a.m. to midnight.
Coffee and sandwiches will range from $2 to $6, Lee said. Charging stations will be conveniently located along the walls to allow students to study at the café.
Lee is the daughter of Chen Lee, who owns Chopstix Cafe on Southwest 13th Street.
Antonio's Italian Deli
Antonio's Made in Italy, an Italian restaurant located in a remodeled train station in Micanopy, is opening a deli next door. The deli will offer Italian meats and cheeses, olives, biscotti, sandwiches, pasta and, of course, wine.
Lasagna or eggplant parmesan are other dishes that might be offered daily, with prices ranging from $6 to $7. Outdoor seating will be available on the deli's porch.
The deli will open this week, and every day thereafter from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., in the Harvest Village at 22050 U.S. 441.
