No notice yet.

Unfortunately I’m on here today to bring you the sad news that Melt has now closed for good. We’ve tried (God I tried!) really hard to keep things going, but like many small businesses at the moment we just couldn’t weather this storm any longer. It’s been a mad five years here in Aberdeen - we opened in the midst of the oil downturn, battled through Brexit and latterly fought to stay afloat during the continuing COVID19 pandemic. We have changed our business a hundred times during the 1st lockdown, only being available on delivery platforms, working as a take out only, providing hundreds of cheeseboards and brownie boxes, brownie box kits and investment in the website for mail order brownies as well as investing in a new outdoor area gazebo and seating. Then the 2nd lockdown happened. We were visited by all of you kind people (kudos to you lot!) and even gained celebrity fans such as Nicola Sturgeon, Jon Snow and Donald Sutherland as well as being featured in the likes of magazines like Cosmopolitan and Closer magazine and newspapers like The Scotsman and also the likes of ITN, STV and Channel 4 news. We’ll never cease to be amazed at the sizeable and amazingly supportive following that Melt has gained over the years - It’s hard to mention you all in this post (you know who you are!), but I have to say a massive thank you to the wonderful Catriona Platten in particular who has been with me since opening 5 years ago, as well as my long suffering husband Mr Melt. I’ve worked hard over the years to be a good member of the hospitality community in Aberdeen and it breaks my heart to see everyone struggling as much as they are right now - I genuinely don’t know what’s next for myself now! A day off would be a start, and maybe even a long lie. Stay safe. Closing Melt was one of the hardest decisions that I’ve had to make in my life so far, as it has been my absolute passion for 5 years and I did not take this decision lightly. I wish my comrades in hospitality all the luck in the world in getting through these current difficult times - please everyone continue to shop local! ❤️ Stay safe Yours Mechelle
