If you would like a good meal with no frills head to Mellos on Dalhousie.. Lisa and Sam will make you feel right at home.. If your looking for fancy this is not the place for you, It's home style cooking served up with smile from Lisa. If you go once and don't return for a while - She will remember you! They make you feel like regular even on there first visit.. Try the breakfast and tell them Ali sent you..

"Home Made" original menu. Original seasonal drinks. Food can take a while to be served but the reason is that everything is made from stratch.

I had French Toast, pancakes, bacon, sausage and my friend had eggs, fries and toast. Oh and coffee. The bill came to about $16. Great diner with quick service and a friendly waitress who seems to know all her regulars very well. Would definitely recommend this place.

Old school diner in the heart of the Ottawa tourist district. Nothing fancy but, the food is pure diner classic. Hot, fresh, fast and yummy! The staff are real characters and part of the attraction. Good food at great prices. Love the breakfasts!

Mellos was opened in 1942 and by the looks of it not much has changed. Looks can be deceiving. The present owners are slowly retrofitting the place and it's a gem under reconstruction. Plan and simple. No fancy tables or cutlery. Having had the pleasure of doing breakfast multiple times here it never ceases to amaze me how it all comes together. The staff are incredible. A waitress who can remember everything you order and also insult you to no end. A cook who gets it right all the time. Bottomless cup of coffee. My kind of place. True the food is a basic breakfast menu but don't be afraid to ask for something different. Early morning regulars are a show onto themselves. They are mostly the stall merchants from the Market who are competing against each other for you to buy their products. The atmosphere and banter is priceless.
I haven't had the pleasure of doing the evening menu but I'm hearing it's a lineup to get into the place.
