I give this place a 3.5 stars. I've been for brunch, as well as for dinner. The Brunch - overpriced for what you get. There's also a slight odd taste to everything on the plate .. I couldn't figure it out until I guessed it was the oil that is used. The newfoundland breakie is what I tend to order,... More

First impression is that this isn't an overly fancy place but the food is amazing. There aren't a lot of choices on the menu but there's enough variety. Place was busy at lunch! Omelet was delicious and a great homemade burger - don't get those too often. Service was excellent. Coffee was great - nothing negative at all. Reasonably priced... More

Melanie's is one of our go-to restaurants. The food never disappoints and Melanie always makes her rounds making sure that all is well. The value is quite good. We are never disappointed.

We had a great family gathering at Melanie's Bistro on the Danforth. My second memorable meal there. Every dish was beautifully presented and executed. The meat eaters were more than happy with their choices, especially the house pate. The vegetarian had a choice! That is rare enough to merit special praise. Our server was knowledgeable, personable but not intrusive. Melanie... More

Melanie and Arul have created an ideal refuge in an otherwise barren area on the Danforth that brings families together for a well-priced selection of dishes that can please every taste. An informal atmosphere, a limited but excellent selection of wines and beers with killer deserts by Melanie herself. 1870 Danforth Ave., Toronto. 416-422-1870

I have now been twice to Melanie's once for brunch and yesterday for dinner. The food is outstanding and the service is excellent. The desserts are to die for. An unpretentious little gem! Love it!

I have eaten there many times, both for dinner and lunch, usually with a group of friends. The food is always well presented and very tasty. The owner is usually on site and engaged. I usually try something different each time I go and I have never been disappointed.
