Cheese & Co.’s The Company Bowl

By Anna Faller | June 24, 2023

As the name suggests, Cheese & Co. in Petoskey is all about melty, cheesy goodness, from crispy mac and cheese bites to six types of gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches. Their best-selling menu item, though—lovingly dubbed The Company Bowl ($16.04)—is somehow almost dairy-free. (We don’t ask questions; we just eat it.) It features a flavorful base of brown rice and Cuban-style black beans layered with char-grilled chicken thighs, red cabbage, and creamy avocado. Though there is a suggestion of that better cheddar—the shredded white kind, to be specific—it’s Cheese & Co.’s infamous Cheba sauce that rounds out the bowl alongside salsa, sour cream, and a sprinkling of citrusy cilantro. Make your meal vegan with house-simmered chickpeas, or go all in with extra toppings. There are no rules here—only great eats!
