I love Melt! They have great vegan and non vegan options. My non vegan friends love it here too. I could eat the veggie flatbread every day.
They drinks are really good. I’m in love with the lavender gin cocktail. Vibe is really cool and the service is always great. People are friendly and attentive.

Long time fans of Melt’s eclectic vibe and fresh menu, Shannon and Diane moved back to the Queen City from San Francisco, in 2017. Shannon is a Cincinnati native, and a whole-food and vegan chef with over 20 years of experience under her belt. She has a tremendous amount of passion for creating innovative dishes that are healthy, organic, and locally sourced. Diane was born and raised in California, and her culinary influences have been primarily whole-food based with a vegan/vegetarian slant. They are both extremely excited to share their experiences and inspirations from the Bay Area’s culinary and craft cocktail scene, while still celebrating the classic menu items that have made Melt an institution in Northside and Cincinnati, for over 15 years!
