After eating at Mel's Diner in Bonita Springs the night before, we thought we'd go again further down the road on our travels. The layout is so stylish and authentic and there is a real personal touch to the atmosphere. The staff are polite and the food is of real high quality and great value - most main meals come... More

Very good food. I liked the little booths. I would definitely go there again. Friendly waitress. The prices weren't bad either.

Good home cooked food. We had dinner at Mel's Diner in Cape Coral, and breakfast at the one in Fort Myers. The one in Cape Coral is a little bigger, and newer, I think. Ate there twice for dinner, and both times it was very good.

My wife and I stopped for dinner and was surprised on the nice variety of food on the menu. I had the hot turkey sandwich with gravy and real mashed potato's.
