The Melting Pot Breakfast and Burger Lounge, located at 4935 Hwy. 93 in the Village of Radium Hot Springs is coming close to a one-year anniversary.

The breakfast and burger joint first opened its doors in November 2010, and has not looked back. Previously, owner and operator of The Melting Pot Cathleen Chow’s husband had been running a Chinese food business for 23 years, but retired.

This prompted a new direction for Chow and the building.

“It was the direction, inspiration and guidance I wanted to take at the time,” said Chow. “I owned the building, and just felt guided to renovate and do this and try something different.”

The Melting Pot features indoor and outdoor patio seating, with a modern and crisp, clean interior suitable for small parties or large groups and families, and is located on Hwy. 93 just before entering Kootenay National Park, making it an ideal pit-stop for those coming and leaving the valley.

Prior to the August long-weekend, the Melting Pot offered, and still offers a large breakfast menu, with common favourites and a few unique items.

The Melting Pot has also recently introduced a new menu of hamburgers, ranging from classic grillhouse sandwiches to wraps and gourmet-style selections.

As an example, the “classic” burger meal features a thick, juicy patty between two fresh grain buns, topped with fresh-from-the-fryer onion rings, crisp lettuce and tomatoes, thin, shredded onions and a delicious mayonnaise spread with a garlic touch.

Served with a side of thinly-cut fries or choice salad, the menu item puts a high-quality, gourmet spin on a usual classic.

Chow has received much positive feedback for the food, selection, customer service and more, specifically commenting on the full flavour of the burgers and excellent breakfast items.

“I am overwhelmed,” said Chow. “I am so grateful and thankful for each customer, and the staff.”
