A new sandwich shop opened in Duluth's East Hillside neighborhood Wednesday.

Toasty's had its grand opening from 5 to 9 p.m. The restaurant, on Ninth Street and 11th Avenue East, will serve a variety of grilled cheese sandwiches made with local, organic ingredients.

A husband-and-wife team is behind the venture. Thomas Hagen said he and his wife have a combined 25 years of experience in restaurants. They grew up in the neighborhood. The location, which used to house Eighth Street Video, is special to them.

"We want to be a part of the community and be something that people take a lot of pride in," Hagen said. "Growing up, we visited a lot the old Eighth Street Video spot where Steve and his father would remember our names, and it was something like people just liked to come back to."

Beginning Thursday, Toasty's will be open seven days a week, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
