The Meltdown Time line
APRIL 2018 - THE POP UP
While Maeve O'Malley was working in Restaurants and Cafe's surrounded by delicious food, she realised everyone went for the humble toastie whenever hunger struck. Fast forward 4 years of developing recipes and expanding her knowledge she opened Meltdown, originally as a 3 month Pop up on Stephen Street Lower.
JULY 2018 - THE BUTTON FACTORY
In July 2018, after a successful Pop Up the opportunity to move Meltdown to the Button Factory presented itself. Over the 18 month residency Meltdown grew in popularity, and became the go to location for the ultimate toastie.
November 2018 - EAT YARD
The Bernard Shaw
Meltdown showcased it's insane Christmas Menu in Yuleyard for Christmas 2018. Meltdown fans fell in love with the Happy Cheesemas and The Cheeses of Nazareth. Meltdown also catered for the ultimate Winter Carlsberg Experience.
Meltdown spread some toastie love with a 2 month Pop up in Avoca, Ballsbridge.
September 2019 - Meltdown Hot Stuff hit the shelves
After almost a year of development Meltdown Hot Stuff was launched. This is a delicious Habanero and Apple tomato based Hot Sauce which goes great with breakfast and of course toasties
Meltdown Leeson Street
The Button Factory, a kiosk sort of place was becoming too small to cater for all the things Meltdown wanted to do. Leeson street serves an extended menu which includes delicious home made cakes and an insane breakfast menu.
Meltdown Montague Street
Despite 2020 bringing Dublin City to a standstill, Meltdown powered on and grew to a second location on Montague street with a fully seated café offering the much loved Meltdown menu in a funky and relaxed space.
