Are you Melting this summer (and I am not talking about the heat)? I’m not trying to be cheesy but its pretty hard not to when you’re talking about The Melt. From Cheeseburgers, to Grilled cheese, to fresh salads, milkshakes, Mac ‘N’ Cheese, soups, fries and more….it’s enough to cool you off by making your mouth water. Add in the Mac Daddy, an Italian Job, or ‘Shrooms & Swiss and your taste buds are in for a real treat!
I had the opportunity to go to a media event at The Shops At Mission Viejo ,the newest location here in Southern Cali for The Melt, a fast casual eatery that combines chef-inspired, wholesome food with a mission to serve better food to families through 100% all natural American Classics.
All of their food is handcrafted and made to order, with quality standards prohibiting hydrogenated fats and artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners or preservatives. The Melt is located at the Shops of Mission Viejo near the lower level of Nordstroms.
Store Hours at this location;
Mon-Fri: 10am – 9pm
Sat: 10am – 8pm
Sun: 11am – 6pm
The Burgers are a quarter pound, 100% angus and wagyu beef and unless otherwise requested, are cooked medium, pink and juicy. And if you don’t want beef, no one will cluck here, just substitute the house marinated all natural grilled chicken for any burger
In the mood for something different? Try the Grilled Cheese – made with aged grated cheeses, bakery fresh artisan breads melted to order and experience a whole new foodie adventure.
On the lighter side, the salads are organic farm fresh greens, hand tossed and lightly dressed…enough to make the tomato blush when it sees the salad dressing. (totally punny, I know).
The Mac N Cheese is creamy and extra cheesy made from scratch. is in itself worth the trip.
Their motto is simple and true:
Grilled. Cheese. Burgers. 100% all natural real happy food.
The soups are artisan crafted and great for dipping – unless you are like me and you chug!
And for dessert? Their Milkshakes bring all the kids to The Melt; and are available in any of the following flavors:
- Vanilla Bean
- Double Chocolate
- Cookies and Cream
- Mint Chocolate Chip
With Drinks, Kids meals, and desserts to boot, there is something for everyone at any of their three locations in Orange County;
And when you are finished at The Melt, you’ll have a hard time wiping that cheesy grin off your face.
As if all of that isn’t enough, The Melt has a pretty fantastic Fundraising program that I wanted to share with you. The Melt puts the word FUN in fundraising – proudly supporting the local communities by partnering with schools and youth sports teams by hosting in-store fundraising events. The Melt tastes even better when it’s for a good cause.
25 % of all pre-tax sales generated during the event will be donated when a fundraiser flyer is presented at the time of order. This event runs Sunday through Thursday, 3pm –close. Certain blackout dates and limitations do apply based on store availability.
