Yummy sight here! We cook every once in a while what is known in French as 'croque-monsieur' which is a grilled sandwich with gratted cheese and a slice of ham, liberaly buttered on both outer sides and grilled in a special kind of iron device. My second daughter being more on the vegetarian side it results in here having...Grilled Cheese Sandwich! I will show her your recipe so she can improve.
Just for cultural mater, a 'croque-madame' will be a croque-monsieur with a fried egg on top, don't ask me why...

JJ, what is the device like? I have an old iron called a Toas-Tite that is at least 50 years old. It has long handles and two round metal plates at the end, joined by a hinge. When closed, the edges seal the sandwich (the corners of the crust are trimmed off).

Loved this article and the photos. I'm so happy when I hear of an old building saved and a small business succeeding. And are the people in this town lucky, or what? I'd be there every day!

Kaper,
The device is just like you describe it! The one we have is for one toast at a time but my grandma used to have a double one.
This old building is real nice and the funny thing is that it looks somewhat like my onw house, a creole house with wooden walls painted white.

JJ, I have seen newer ones in catalogs, etc., but they are square - prefer the round one for the childhood memories!

I went to California and it seemed like people don't like square stuff and folks over there...childhood memories are so tasty, this was the real time!
