Review of The Melt

8849 Villa La Jolla Dr #305, La Jolla, CA 92037

Overall Rating


We had their gluten free burger and their gluten free Italian job grilled cheese and they were AMAZING! At first we were worried that the grilled cheese was incorrectly made with normal bread because it looked so realistic, but I could tell that it was safe for my fiancé after taking a bite, the texture is a little off from regular bread but it’s visually the same. He didn’t get sick but I’m unsure of all of their precautions so I don’t know if it would be safe for celiacs.
