Without a doubt the coffee is excellent and the cakes looked divine, maybe ordering a salad was the wrong thing to do. We both ordered the Caprese Salad stack and although it looked good on the plate, a few slices of tomato, cheese and a bit of garnish did not warrant the price we paid. Quite disappointed in fact.

Hi Shar, I'm sorry you had a disappointing experience at Melt. I own Melt and take personal pride in every meal that is served so I will definitely look into why the Caprese salad was not as it should have been. Please let me know when you visited Melt so I can investigate why the service was slow. We also... More

We had open sandwiches, which although delicious were not exactly gourmet. We also had chocolate brownies which were amazing! The let down is the service though which seemed lazy and inefficient. We had a very long time at each stage of service. I would like to give the restaurant another try soon but it's probably best to stick to the... More

I have only ever had coffee's from Melt, and needless to say, they are the best. The shop smells like coffee and chocolate and the staff and manager are extremely friendly and helpful.

This is a small independent coffee shop with a chocolate making section. The coffee good and service is always friendly. They serve wonderful cakes and the scones with jam and cream are served in the old fashioned way. A great little refreshment stop whilst at the Nicolway Shopping Center.

We stopped here for a coffee and what an amazing surprise we found. The cakes were delicious - was recommended the Queen Victoria cake and was not disappointed. The chocolate cake was rich but went down so well. The staff were friendly and helpful. The decor is lovely - attention to detail. Loved the plates the cakes were served on... More

Delectable confectionary and scrumptious cakes uplift the Nicolway shopping experience. We drive from far to shop here, not least on account of Melt.

We love stopping off at Melt for a great cappucino and something tasty to eat. Our favourite is the wholewheat scones, served with grated cheese, jam and cream. Always hot and fresh. There are other tasty sweet things - the carrot cake is divine, as is the lemon drizzle cake. They make amazing chocolates on the premises. Well worth a... More
