Fun, quirky little joint that will surprise you with their tasty fare! Sat windowside with the family and enjoyed the downtown view and a vegetarian sandwich with hummus and chips. My husband loved the meaty brisket sandwich and cheesy buffalo mac!

My favorite things in a restaurant are when they put together flavors I've never had before and inspire me to cook differently in my own kitchen. Melt delivered! It was really great!
