Deliciously cheesy

Rarebites is a seriously cheesy sandwich shop.

And we mean, seriously cheesy. The ‘big yellow shop’ on the corner of Huddersfield Road by the traffic lights, has taken the humble cheese sandwich and transformed it into a tantalising treat that will set your tastebuds tingling.

These are gourmet cheese sandwiches, oozing with flavour and overflowing with unusual toppings from this artisan grilled cheese shop.

The bread is locally-sourced sourdough, and topped with a rich mix of mozzarella and cheddar. Simply choose your filling and enjoy the taste sensation.

Deliciously local produce

Ann, who owns and runs Rarebites, comes from a country background and grew up with locally grown and sourced food. It’s a philosophy she’s brought to her artisan grilled cheese sandwiches, she said:

“Everything we offer is sourced locally if possible. Our sourdough bread comes from Rogers Bakery, an artisan bakery in Marsden, our cheeses come from various suppliers and farms, and our Halloumi is from the fabulous Yorkshire Dama Cheese company. We also have a great relationship with other businesses in Honley and share information and advice about sourcing local produce.”

Heaven for cheese lovers

Rarebites divine cheese sandwiches literally ooze quality, and the food on offer is tantalising.

“The menu and specials change regularly so there’s always something new to try. We grill our sandwiches on a hotplate and flatten them with a special iron, which makes them really easy to eat,” said Ann.

There’s also a range of accompaniments, with bacon-topped cheesy fries a particular favourite among regular customers. However, you can always discover your own favourite by adding any toppings from the menu, and dipping your fries in one of the many sauces on offer.

There’s even deliciously warming soup, homemade by Ann, and a selection of fresh fruit and vegetable smoothies and milkshakes to enjoy. You can also choose from a range of speciality coffees, locally roasted, of course.

While most of Ann’s trade is takeaway, there is a small seating area in the shop or you can order online at Goodeats. Just search for Rarebites.

A real treat

If you love cheese take a wander down to Rarebites, and treat yourself to one of their heavenly artisan grilled cheese sandwiches. You won’t be disappointed.
