The Melt Comes to the Shops at Mission Viejo

We visited as guests of the restaurant.The MeltA fast(ish) food chain that serves real food, containing 100% natural ingredients with names you can pronounce, no artificial ingredients and no high fructose corn syrup anywhere on premises (even in the ketchup or soda)…. and the food is still delicious and fun!? This is the stuff that dreams are made of right?

Enter: The Melt.The MeltThis order-at-the-counter, casual eatery was founded on the premise of brining a better-for-you option to the fast food industry, that didn’t skimp on flavor. Using quality ingredients ranging from artisan baked buns to in season produce to all natural meats, not only makes their food heads above their competition in quality, but also in taste. The salads are fresh, the fries have an option be made of sweet potatoes, and the soft serve has merely five ingredients, of which food dye is not one. Can I get a hallelujah?! The MeltKeeping on point with their commitment to the environment and the communities they serve, The Melt uses only 100 percent recyclable and compostable packaging in its restaurant locations. You won’t find a trash can in the Melt – only recycling and compost bins. How cool is that!?The MeltAs a mom who values feeding my kids real food that is the least amount processed possible, I think this casual restaurant is a great option. They have kid friendly food, served in a kid friendly atmosphere, but they are heads above most fast food restaurants in the quality of their food.

My toddler enjoyed his kids meal that was cutely packaged and came with a choice of sliced apples.The Melt

My bigger kids opted for the adult menu and loved their classic grilled cheese and tomato soup.The Melt

The highlight of the night is generally dessert for us though, so the dye free soft serve was a huge hit!The Melt

Those are some real happy kids right there!

With three locations in Orange County, the newest of which is located in the Shops at Mission Viejo, the Melt is the next place you need to grab a quick lunch or dinner!
