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, in April 2018 she opened Meltdown, originally as a 3 month pop-up on Stephen Street Lower.

JULY 2018

The button factory Temple bar

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.


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 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!


Avoca Ballsbridge

Meltdown spread some toastie love with a 2 month Pop up in Avoca, Ballsbridge.


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.

November 2020

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.
