We take comfort food seriously, Extremely seriously, but with some twists. Combining our passion for Extraordinary flavor profiles with our love for the Extreme, MELTZ is the culmination of years of culinary experience. Fusing layers of flavor, our sandwiches go beyond your expectations and what you may imagine. These sandwiches are deliberate in every way to bring you an Extreme combination of textures, flavors, spices and heat. Oh, we still make simple, familiar grilled cheese sandwiches. But if you're looking to Kick Up Your Comfort, we've got something on the menu for you!

Excellent Sandwich's

This is a surprisingly good restaurant. It’s tucked away in a unassuming building. Yet, walk inside and you immediately feel welcomed. The insides are clean and bright.

Hubby wanted to try this place so I went along. The Simpleton sandwich sounded like it had at least some fresh veggies in it but the little bit there were overwhelmed with CHEESE. The Caesar salad might have been a pleasant option if it had not been plastered in creamy sauce and doused generously with dry Parmesan CHEESE. Hubby had... More

This place gets a 5, just like Le Bernardin, The French Laundry, or Picasso (Las Vegas). Okay, it isn't that good or even close to it or even allowed on the same block. Its just'a grilled cheese sandwich for Gosh Sake! Until, you take into originality, which can be hard to do in today's ultra-foodie world. Meltz does it, however.... More

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy. I had the Cuban Sammy & Caesar Salad combo. Actually, I had 1/2 sandwich, based on reading previous reviews. Glad I listened, it was big & filling. The crispy cheese that was attached to the edges of my sandwich were an extra bonus. Loved it. My kiddo had the Oinker and she says we have to come... More

We read the reviews of Meltz and stopped for lunch on our way from Seattle to Missoula. It was so good, we timed our return trip so we would be back there when they opened. This is the most creative restaurant we've been to in quite a while and it would be a shame to miss it. The menu has... More

Excellent rating is all about the food! Found this place on tripadvisor when researching Coeur d'alene. We were in town visiting friends and i knew there would be some times during the week when they were not available and we might want to grab a bite out somewhere. We're traveling extensively in a motorhome so many of our meals are... More

I found this place on, of all places, Trip Advisor prior to my recent visit to Coeur d'Alene. My daughter an I went for lunch on a Sunday. It was easy to find. Very unassuming building in a small strip mall type place. I had read about all the awards this place has received (I wasn't even aware there were... More

I had the Rooben Evolooshun. I love Reuben's, but this one was so good that when I took the first bite I had an 'Oh my God!" moment. Whoever put these recipes together knows food, flavor and how to make things taste amazing. I ordered a whole sandwich but half a sandwich was enough that I was still stuffed by... More

Melts is Amazing! When you pull up, it's in the parking lot of a gas station and mini-mart and you think "no way!", but go in! The sandwiches are great! You can get anything imaginable on a grille cheese. My wife had a pastrami Reuben and I had a bacon jalapeño sandwich with home made potato chips. My wife also... More

This is the best grilled cheese place that I have ever been to! I highly recommend it! The potsticker grilled cheese is my favorite and their homemade soups are delicious. Like potato chips? They make them fresh!
