“Big, bold, and amazing sandwiches!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

This place has amazing creative sandwiches along with fantastic beer and desserts if you have room. The selection is huge for both a meat eater and vegetarians, which doesn't happen often. Prices are reasonable for the portion size. The only negative thing I have to say is that it is so popular and busy there is usually a wait. So come hungry, and prepared for a wait unless you go on a off peak time. Staff was friendly and welcoming.

“Love Melt!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Great food, fun atmosphere, great outdoor seating (although watch out for bird bombs raining down on your head in the spring -- a small price to pay for good food). The vegetarian fare is good, but there's plenty on the menu for the carnivore. Good soups, good roast beef and turkey, and a great muffalatta!

Brunch is served on Sundays, although I've never tried it.

Rule of thumb -- when in Northside Cincinnati, stop by Melt!

“not just for vegetarians”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Took some vegan friends here and we all had great food. The breads are fantastic ( I had OTR rye). The kale slaw was a new experience- and delicious. If the restaurant looks small, don't be fooled, more space in the back. The specialties are a variety of grilled cheeses dressed up. The ojnly weakness I spotted was a limited beverage choice. Friendly place.

“Delicious salads”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

The salads are delicious and generous portions. I love the atmosphere -- kind of funky, kind of relaxed, a great place to hang out for lunch or just a coffee and pastry.

“Good Options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

We went here because we liked the variety of vegan, vegetarian, and meat dishes. My husband eats meat while I maintain a vegetarian lifestyle. We both loved the dished we had and the staff was friendly. Its a little small and confusing how it works but other than that we loved it.
