Mellos was recommended as good breakfast place in the Byward Market. It turns out to be a typical old school diner with booths and a counter with stools. Very friendly wait staff took our 'breakfast special' orders which came swiftly along with the bottomless coffee. Nothing overly special about the meal- sausage and poached eggs with home fries and rye toast- but competently done and very cheap. Without trying other menu items I'm fairly ambivalent about this place.

Mello's dinner/late night menu has been refreshingly refreshed with a varied menu and a decent, but unpretentious wine & beer selection. Staff is friendly, helpful and easy going and the open concept diner kitchen makes it easy to actually personally communicate with kitchen staff.

Everyone working seemed aware of what vegetarians would look for and they were more than able to adapt a variety of their menu items to suit vegetarians and vegans (i.e. transforming Buffalo chicken to Buffalo tempeh!).

Great value too. For under $50, we got 1 starter, two mains, a glass of wine each and we walked out with leftovers! Not a bad date

My one criticism would be that the gravy they used on their fries was a tad too salty. The fact that they opted for vegetarian gravy over meat gravy is a seriously nice touch though. More restaurants in Ottawa would be better off being as flexible as the new staff at Mello's!

Nice fresh breakfast made to order. Fun mix of locals and tourists, and the price was very reasonable compared to the other places we ate over the course of our visit.

We tried 3 different breakfast places in the area and this was by far the best breakfast at the most reasonable prices. It's a fairly cramped place but service was excellent and friendly.

What I liked when I went to eat at mellos was the idea of the whole diner in the morning and fancy dinner at night. What I disliked was the tight space we were in but other than that everything was amazing, the food, the service and much more.
