Cate Restaurants is an on-campus eatery that is a “bud” to our tastebuds and a friend to our midday food cravings. From chocolate chip pancakes to mushroom and swiss burgers, Cate has it all. It even has something for the pickiest of eaters like freshman public relations major Meredith Magee, who only has a heart for Ruthie’s grilled cheese sandwiches.
Magee describes herself as a grilled cheese connoisseur and confesses that she has sampled grilled cheeses from each on-campus restaurant that serves the sandwich. There is something about a Ruthie’s grilled cheese, however, that has Magee in a cheesy trance that can’t be shaken.
“I started ordering grilled cheese sandwiches from Ruthie’s during the middle of last semester,” Magee said. “From the moment I first tried it, I knew it was the one – the perfect grilled cheese.”
Normal grilled cheese sandwiches are made with a couple slices of bread and a slice of cheese, but Magee said the cooks at Ruthie’s add one more slice – a slice of kindness.
“All of the workers at Ruthie’s are so friendly, and they pay attention to every detail, making sure the grilled cheese is grilled to perfection with the right amount of cheesy goodness.”
Magee does not know what her summer will be like without Ruthie’s grilled cheese sandwiches just a quick stroll away from her place of residence. Until that time comes, however, she will continue to dine at Cate Restaurants each week with a smile on her face and a grilled cheese in her hand.
