When it comes to food trends, cheese is a perennial favourite – from rainbow toasties to raclette, our Instagram and Facebook feeds were full of the stuff last year. Now 2017 is in full swing, our love of all things cheesy hasn't melted.
To celebrate Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day and Cheese Fondue Day, we're raising a glass to the best cheese dishes on Deliveroo.
Croque Shop, Brighton
No need to cross the Channel for a classic croque monsieur or madame, just check out Brighton's Croque Shop. In a menu bursting with cheese-filled pastries and American grilled cheese sandwiches, you'll find their twist on the traditional French toastie. Why not go XXL and order a baguette oozing with béchamel, vintage cheddar, farmhouse ham and a fried egg for a croque madame. C'est magnifique!
Darceys Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, Newcastle
Baby got mac! Darceys does grilled cheese in a big way, with a macaroni cheese number that puts the 'goo' in gouda, and a smashed meatball sandwich covered in a blend of three cheeses. Order them here.
Moose and Moonshine, Liverpool
As national dishes go, Canada's takes some beating. Poutine is a far cry from a northern takeaway after a night out, this is a delicious mix of French fries, topped with rich gravy and cheese curd. For those who can't make the hop across the Atlantic to try it, Moose and Moonshine uses authentic curd to bring a bona fide taste of Canadian comfort food to Liverpool.
Home of the Big Manc, Solita's serves up gut-busting burgers with a kaleidoscope of cheese, including all-American classics like Monterey Jack and native favourites Lancashire cheese and cheddar.

Chocolate and cheese in a toastie might sound like an unconventional choice, but this mascarpone, Nutella and sea salt combination, sandwiched between brioche, might just be the toastie to top the decadence scale. Ranked as one of the best grilled cheeses by The Telegraph, Melt's Choc Fondue is your go-to treat when you're torn between pudding and a sandwich – so that's every lunch time then.
