Our story...

The Cheesy Toast Shack began in Spring 2016, with the mission to serve the best grilled cheese in Scotland.  Fast forward on from then, and we have already been named The Best Place To Eat at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and are selling our Scottish grilled cheese at a wide range of high profile events, including Glastonbury Festival.

We are proud to promote the use of some of the best produce Scotland has to offer, constantly changing our menu to keep our options fresh and seasonal.

We've been featured in a range of press from The MetroThe Scotsman and ITV News.

Find us at our usual pitch, on the stunning Kingsbarns Beach, St Andrews most weekends, unless we are at one of the events below...

Here's what people have to say about us – 

Toasted cheese on wheels! What more could you want? The Cheese Toast Shack’s van is having a special Fringe Fest makeover and will be popping up Edinburgh, from its usual home in St Andrews, for the festival to cater to your gourmet toastie cravings. You can find the van at Summerhall, next to the Meadows.

Fluffy toasted bread, bubbling cheese and a not-so-healthy array of glazed meat and fresh tomato; whatever the definition of a perfect cheese toastie is, Scotland has it sussed.

I started with La Frenchie from The Cheesy Toast Shack which feature raclette cheese with smoked bacon, onion and potato in garlic and white wine sauce. Seriously. It was exactly as good as that sounds.
