Voted best “Vegetarian Restaurant” for two years in a row, Melt is, in our opinion, one of the best things to happen to Cincinnati. Yes, they are a successful vegetarian restaurant…but they easily surpass that qualification. The food is so powerfully good, that Melt qualifies unquestionably as one of Cincinnati’s best restaurants overall. Providing an imaginative array of nutritious foods for vegans, vegetarians, and even meat-eaters, Melt offers something Cincinnati needs in spades: excellent, healthy food at an obtainable price. Even the atmosphere is pleasant, particularly now with its outdoor seating… We visit regularly on Sunday for their amazing brunch specials. This past weekend we ordered both the “Organic Buckwheat Waffle” and the “Rosemary Redskin Mess” and delightfully split them.
The Organic Buckwheat Waffle comes with fresh fruit over a buckwheat waffle topped again with vanilla whipped cream.
The Rosemary Redskin Mess consists of redskin potatoes topped with tofu scramble, roasted onions, marinated mushrooms, peppers, roma tomatoes, and fresh spinach, and baked with white cheddar or vegan smoky cheddar.
Melt is located in Northside, at 4165 Hamilton Ave, Cincinnati, Ohio 45223. Indulge yourself, it’s healthy.
