Great Food, Friendly Service and a Great Price. You can't go wrong eating at Mel's for any meal of the day.

I thought team service in restaurants was dead - but not at Mel's! I had a late breakfast there recently and had my iced tea refilled - or offered to be refilled - by what must have been every one of the waitresses on duty!...More

Great place to pop in for a casual, Saturday brunch, lunch or dinner – or breakfast if you get up that early on Saturday! I love the blueberry pancakes. They put more blueberries in them than any other restaurant I've ever been to – bar...More

If you like country type food then this place is for you. Breakfast is always the best and you can get it any time of the day. They get busy and at times are a little slow but you will be seated pretty quickly.
