Northside’s favorite eclectic deli has a little something for everyone. I stopped in for a plate of hummus, olive tapenade, feta, cucumbers, and pesto crostini earlier this week. It was generous for $7.50, as was the garlicky wallop that I felt well into the following day. I washed it down with a sparkly mango kombucha (fermented juice), as this is one of the few delis that stock it. Melt is committed to offering clean proteins as well as a wide variety of meat-free dishes, many of which can be prepared vegan, or even gluten-free, which makes this place a great option for meeting up with friends who have a variety of dietary needs.
