Takk House, 55 3rd St, Troy, NY 12180


Melt N' Toast:
A festival of melted cheese & toasted bread.


Join us for a celebration of this classic American comfort food:

the grilled cheese sandwich.

Melt N' Toast showcases the Capital Region's culinary and craft beverage landscape, featuring the creativity of local food vendors paired with regional craft beverage producers.  Whether it's stacked with classic or artisan ingredients, the combinations are endless, and everyone has their own way of enjoying a grilled cheese sandwich.

Come taste delicious chefs' choice grilled cheese creations, paired with a featured local craft beverage selection, and vote for your best Melt N' Toast combo.  Also be ready to Melt N' Groove with music by DJ TRUMASTR and photos by Snappy Booth.

It is estimated that a quarter of life’s pleasurable moments involve cheese in some capacity.
