Good food, great atmosphere

I loved the vegan mushroom melt. The Mac and cheese was not the best. It lacked any creaminess and not too much flavor. The breakfast melt was also pretty good.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Good drinks

Cons: Mac and cheese is not worth the extra $4

Many Vegan Options

Almost any of the menu items can be made vegan. I got the buffalo tofu wings with vegan ranch and they were tasty! My husband tried the vegan "fish" sandwich and said it was good. A nice place to go if you're eating with nonveg people and want to please everyone.

Plenty of food

The portion sizes are large, so either have a big appetite, or expect to have leftovers. My wife and I each got the Vegan Crispy Chickn Salad. It was a large, filling, tasty salad; I would definitely get this again. Because I wanted to try it, I got a side of their vegan mac & cheese; it was good, but nothing to write home about as it was not, in my opinion, creamy enough. They have a fair number of vegan choices.

Pros: Large portions., Friendly staff., Many choices.

Cons: A little pricy.

Comfort/Bar food

Huge grilled cheeze sammies with vegan cheese. Salad, soup, create your own mac and cheese. You get huge servings they offer half sizes of sandwiches.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Sandwich, salad, soup, mac and cheese , Knowledgeable staff

Cons: Serves meat, Pricey, Can be busy

Solid bar food

Great spot to get together with non veg friends. 3 stars because overall the food use to be better and portion sizes use to be larger.

Comfort Food

Is super good! Lots of deep frying going on and oily, so watch your intake if you’re sensitive, but otherwise it’s excellent for a cheat day! Had the BBQ tofu wings with vegan ranch (highly recommend!) and Purple Parm (eggplant parm sand which) can’t wait to try more!
They also host Bitchy Vegan [censored] monthly who have the Best Damn Brownies!

Pros: An entire vegan menu , Hits the comfort spot, Nice staff, cool interior

Cons: Heavy (oily)

Really good

The food was really good. Great place to get some classic American comfort food vegan style. Staff asked everyone who came in if they needed a vegan menu which was cool. Only downside was the long wait for carry out. Also they forgot one of our meal which we didn't notice until we were back at home. They did compensate that with a free meal but it was pretty inconvenient.

Melt melts my heart I love it so much

This location was not as good as the Columbus location in the Short north but I still very much enjoyed my lunch! I got the Summers Vegan and buffalo tofu wings and when it came out the ranch was not vegan. Our waiter made us aware of this and so we asked for vegan ranch but thought it was strange they would have a non vegan dip with an app from the vegan menu?

Pros: Has entire vegan menu, Atmosphere

Comfort food

Seriously impressed by how vegan friendly Melt is. So many delicious sandwich creations to choose from. Fancy grilled cheese concoctions and vegan burgers! You really can't go wrong here.
