Once you go Meltz Extreme Grilled Cheese, you never go back. Their extravagant and flavorful ingredients turn what would be a normal grilled cheese into a taste-bud party. Meltz has been a Coeur d’Alene favorite for years now and there’s a reason why. These are not your average grilled cheese’s. When we say EXTREME, we mean it!
The staff is as friendly as the food is delicious. You’ll be greeted with a cheery “Welcome to Meltz” yelled by every employee as soon as you walk in. They know the ingredients and give great flavor suggestions based on your favorites. While we could ramble on about these grilled cheeses all day, let’s talk about Oooza Paloooza.

Come hungry, ready to try some new food and support these local businesses! We recommend coming with a group, so you can try a little bit of everything. Friends that don’t like to share are friends you don’t need in your life.
Joe, the owner, has an impressive culinary background and he is passionate about finding inspiration and experimenting with ingredients to come up with the perfect grilled cheese. He often finds inspiration from traveling to new places. His newest flavor was inspired by Greek cuisine.
We tried The Sneaky Greek and it exceeded all expectations starting with the sous-vide housemade gyro, and ending with the hummus, peppers, pickled red onions, and tzatsiki, mixed in with loads of cheese, obviously.
Meltz thrives on being a fast-paced, unique food experience. They use in-house ingredients and a strong attention to detail to create unique sandwiches that you won’t find anywhere else.
Another favorite of ours was the Sirancho Ranch. It’s the perfect mix of creamy, spicy and crunch. The crunch comes from crushed homemade potato chips stuffed inside the sandwich. They’re channeling my inner teenager.
Their award-winning Mac n Cheese didn’t disappoint. The creamy mac, rich cheddar, and crouton crust melt together to form an amazing meal.
The Homemade potato chips, fried daily and topped with Meltz’s EXTREME seasoning blend, make the perfect side to your sandwich. Our favorite dip was the Artichoke, Ancho Pesto, and Pickled Pepper. It’s a blend of creamy and spice that will make your mouth water for more.
