“Stop Everytime I'm in Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

Melt is a must stop for me anytime I am traveling down 75. It is great to be able to get off the expressway and eat something that was made quickly for me, that isn't fast food. The Rachel is phenomenal, and all the sides are great. Stop by the Pantry & Picnic next door for more delicious food to take home. I love this funky deli.

“GREAT for vegetarian dishes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

I have gotten salads that are really good, and soups that taste good. sandwiches are good. I am not a vegan, so i haven't tried the seitan items.

“Appearances can be deceiving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

When our Cincinnati friend Diana took us to Melt to say we were dubious is putting it mildly. Reviewers call it eclectic, maybe add a little bizarre to the mix and you are standing at the counter trying to figure out what to order.

This is a perfect case of appearances being deceiving. Melt has WONDERFUL food. Our little group ordered:

 Mediterranean Plate - scoops of hummus, with olive tapenade, served with pesto toast, cucumber slices and optional crumbled feta (I declined the feta)
 The Joan Of Arc - roast beef, roasted red peppers, roasted garlic, blue cheese, caramelized onions and provolone melted on foccaccia.
 Artichoke Melt - open faced melt with artichoke-spinach spread, sliced roma tomatoes and white cheddar baked on flatbread

Everything was freshly prepared and flavors of were superb. You have to do a little searching to find Melt as it is somewhat off the beaten path but it is more than worth the drive/search.

“A great "taste" treat.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

The artichoke melt, is to "die"for....although everyone loved their choices. 1 hoffner, 1 Joan of arc, 2 artichoke.
It was easy ordering and the service was timely. The staff was very people friendly, really customer service oriented

Loved the experience..
