We are new to this Fort Myers area and have been to Mel's in Cape Coral twice before for breakfast. Thought food was good. Had friends in from out of town so we took them there for breakfast on Sunday. They were busy but, not as busy as in the past, (Father's Day was one of the times). To start... More

You get just what you expect for breakfast, and loads of it. Our server, Steve, was really friendly, and couldn't help us enough. Very good value, and an essential place to visit during a holiday from the UK.
