After three and a half years of operation, MMELO has closed its Downtown cafe and confection shop at 445 North High Street (entrance on Vine Street) near the North Market. The owners published an Instagram update on May 5th with updates on their business plans.

“We have decided to close Vine Street, and move the kitchen from ECDI’s Food Fort,” they stated. “We’re consolidating all areas of our business to a new production space on the north side of Columbus located at the Mettler Toledo building on Polaris.”

While there will be a bit of down time with the relocation, MMELO plans to resume business through online store for pickups and deliveries.

MMELO originally launched as an online/pop-up business in 2015 before opening the Downtown brick and mortar location. In 2018, plans were unveiled for a second MMELO location in Franklinton in collaboration with One Line Coffee. Those plans were scrapped later on and the cafe opened solely as a One Line Coffee location in March 2020.
