First Review by NidhiSharma

A fun lunch selection - Edit

When this place first opened they focused on their toasties so there wasn't much selection - but recently they've added two v-burgers and plenty of other stuff to the menu. The v-burgers are both decent. Toastie-wise go for the mushroom or the artichoke for the more interesting flavours. Definitely try the cauliflower wings.

It's not a very cheap place but they do have a lunchtime deal. I also think the food is too salty (the mac'n'cheese was so salty, why?), but that aside this place is now a fun little place for an occasional lunch selection.

Pros: Buffalo cauliflower wings - great dish

Cons: Rather pricey for what it is, Too salty

Avoid - Edit

Happened to be in the area with my recently turned veggie brother so decided to try this place out, especially after seeing some delicious looking snaps on Instagram. Unfortunately, it did not deliver. Food was average at best, just tasted like they whacked spice on everything to cover the fact it was flavourless and rubbish. Between four of us we tried lots of different stuff, so know it wasn’t an isolated incident either. Especially the toastie which is meant to be their trademark! To top it off, service suckeddd. Terrible value for money, all left feeling pretty gutted and unsatisfied. Just save yourself the disappointment and take one stop on the train to Shoreditch and hit up Mooshies instead.

Pros: Didn’t need to book on a Friday night as was quiet

Cons: Bad service, Bad food, Bad value for money

mixed experience - 3.5 stars from me - Edit

I've been to the eatery twice and had uber eats delivery from here once. My first time I found all the food to be pretty average, it probably sounds better on the menu than it is and as it's mainly toasties, I feel like I can make a better one easily at home myself. When I had the delivery, I found the price to be really high for what I got, small portions which didn't fill me up and average taste again. There was a mistake with my order and I was sent a feta cheese salad even though I ordered a vegan salad and made clear on my order I wanted everything vegan. When I called up, the manager told me to come down to the restaurant and I would have a credit note for £5 to spend. I went back a few days later, and the manager did indeed remember me and gave me £5 off the bill. I had a waldorf toastie and a mac & cheese, and this time I must say the food was really, really tasty. I thoroughly enjoyed both items and would order them again.

amazing!! - Edit

Went for a dinner with my partner there and we were both so pleasantly surprised! I had purchased a Groupon voucher and the amount of food we got there was filling us both up to the brim.
Best of all though was the service. The waiter (and owner?) was so invested in the business to provide an excellent service to the customers, to attend to everyone, was knowledgeable about the food and made us excellent hot chocolate 😊 the food itself is American as one can expect, with a good range of the classic comfort foods. Everything was delicious, in good quantity and well priced (unlike some other veggie places that are trying to achieve a similar vibe but then charge £8 for a burger..). Definitely a place to go for comfort food, or where to take your meat loving friends! They would be surprised!!!

Pros: great service , good portion sizes , delicious food

Cons: none

Great comfort food - Edit

We enjoyed the food and the vibe at this place. The buffalo cauliflower wings were special and the melts were really tasty. Glad they asked whether we were students as the discount was an added bonus!

Good vegetarian spin on American cuisine - Edit

It's a little pricey but the food's good and it's especially great to see vegetarian food that isn't presented as so uber-healthy it's not fun. I went here for lunch with a friend and had "chicken wings" (cauliflower) and onion rings, both with sauces, and they were good. I would definitely go again and try something else.

Fantastic food - Edit

So good we went back the next day too.
Fantastic menu where each dish can come as veggie, vegan and gluten free variations. So gluten free vegans (me) are well catered for.
Great vegan cheese.

Pros: friendly staff, disabled toilet, excellent food

Cons: Small so gets very busy

Good junk - Edit

Let's face it ..it's vegan junk food. But it's good junk food and this place is such a welcome addition to the neighbourhood which in terms of vegan options is limited to falafel or Indian.

Really liked my melt and beetroot salad. Not overly taken with the cauliflower wings but then i'm devoted to wagamama's bang bang cauliflower. Brownie was nice and gooey although they should pop in next door to the Coop and get some vanilla glace to serve with it.

Super friendly staff. Highly recommended if u need to fulfill that junk food cravi g

Pros: Super friendly staff, Melted cheese sandwiches, Nice chilled music

Cons: It is not cheap, Limited number of vegan desserts

Really Good Food & Service - Edit

Really interesting food. American food not usually associated with vegetarian and vegan choices but 90 Degree Melt does it! The Grilled Cheese sandwiches are really good - some very interesting recipes and the sides are amazing. Great sauces, Cauliflower Wings and cornbread. The Apple Pie dessert is very good too and the sandwiches can be vegan.
Nice cocktails as well.

Pros: Grilled Cheese, Vegan, Cocktails and happy hour

Great New Fun Restaurant - Edit

The Vibe of the place is really good and the food amazing and really delicious. It's a sustainable (vegetarian) take on classic American comfort food, but in fun tapas style setting - small, inventive, super delicious grilled cheese sandwiches (MELTs), amazing buffalo cauliflower wings, sauces, potato wedges and desserts! My favorites were the Donald Trump (yes!) and the Margarita MELTs!
Cool new addition to East London!
Many vegan options as well

Updated from previous review on 2016-12-04

Pros: Excellent Food, Friendly staff, Nice Vibe & Very Reasonably priced food & alcohol

Cons: Busy during lunch, great for dinner
