Feel local and grab a great meal with a taste of France

You will not be surprised by tourists waiting for a table, but for locals doing so. Food is great, ambiance is simple and straight forward. I loved it when it was a small bistró some years ago. Now, three times bigger, Meli Melo somehow lost part of its charm. Nevertheless, should you drop by in... read more

Our daughter lives on the Left Coast so she is creative and thoughtful with her gift giving back home. Shirley and I for the second time had lunch at Meli Melo on THE Avenue courtesy of Alison. One of those cold, cold wintry days. We each had soup and shared a salad. Their French onion cannot be beat. We cannot... More

How often do we find ourselves racking our brains for a new and different spot for a quick and unpretentious meal. For me it's all the time, and that's why I like to think about Meli-Melo. It is, above all else, a wonderful creperia serving innovative and delicious create creations. With both flour crepes and buckwheat crepes, the crab and... More

Thank you for your note, we appreciate your honest feedback. Please take a moment to visit our new sister restaurant Bistro Versailles as we renovated and reopened the bistro in late 2013. Hope to see you again at Meli-Melo! More

Meli-Melo is great crepes and soups along with a juice bar, salads and homemade ice cream and sorbets. The ambiance is basic, and the service is efficient but not leisurely, but if you've come for what they specialize in, the food is terrific. No reservations, and at peak hours, expect to wait.

Enjoyed a hearty dinner of French onion soup and crepes on a cold winter day. The French music in the background complemented the delicious food and made one feel as if we were in Paris when we were in Greenwich, CT.

Great quick place to grab a lunch or dinner with friends. Meals are good and sandwiches are perfect. They are know for their French Onion soup in town.

On vacation with family, needed a snack. Great smoothies, great food. Tonnes of choice, fast service. Busy all day, get in early.

The crepes were simply aweful.... Not a bite to like. A good place to come with kids but, in opinion, you are better off cooking at home or heading to Versailles. Very disappointed!

The food here is terrific. The crepes are my favorites, both for the meal and dessert. Can't go wrong with any of them. It does feel a bit cramped and at lunchtime on a Saturday, the noise level prevents conversation. Great for couples as well as families.
