So a few years ago the place changed management. Enough said. Even so, it's one of the only 24 hour spots on the mainline. It offers the full array of classic diner food. I'd stick with l breakfast options because it's really tough to totally mess up eggs and pancakes. Or is it?

On certain nights this Mom (empty nest but still) just can't face the prospect of dreaming up, making, serving and cleaning up dinner. Minella's is there for me. No pretense. I can go in a shmatta. Even at busy times we always get seated and served with dispatch. Good plain American eats. The food arrives hot. The servers are efficient... More

Have eaten there many times over the years and have always found the food to be satisfying, if not special. A little pricey, but whenever I go it is crowded so someone must like it more than I do.

The good stuff: can get breakfast all day, big menu, quick service. The not-so-good parts: pricey for what you get; potatoes tasted of old slightly rancid grill grease; asparagus in omelette was all stems and fiber (cheap); indifferent waitress; noisy and rushed. Have eaten in a lot of diners, and most were much better.

I've been going to Minella's diner on and off for many years. It's always busy and once you're seated, the service is excellent. Minella's draws a crowd that spans all ages and I highly recommend that if you're going to go there on a Saturday night you go very early or probably very late because it's very crowded during the...

Minella's Diner in Wayne, PA continues to provide fast and friendly service, good food from a wide variety of menu items, and an operation that knows how to handle the crowds. Even when the line at the door seems long, Minella's knows how to get you in and get you out quickly, all while providing generous portions of quality food.... More

The menu was extensive and shown prices were reasonable. Orders came within a reasonable length of time. Items were not very attractively arranged on each plate but this is a diner so guess that means little. Service was ok but not exceptional. The quality of items including preparation was average. Went there with a total of 4 adults.

Went there w/ 9 people- 4 adults and 5 kids. Took about 15 min wait to snag 2 tables. There isn't a good place to wait so it was really crowed at the entrance. I had pancakes, sausage, bacon and eggs so it wasn't a challenging dish but everything was very good. The pancakes were fluffy, and the rest were... More

If you are looking for a quick meal, then this is it. Staff friendly, breakfast food of all varieties. Nothing special about waffles. Whip cream is missing. Portions are large. The corn beef hash was nice and crispy.

My husband and I have eaten dinner with friends at Manella's band thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We were given great proportions and had great service. We have breakfast - my husband had an omelette. Prices were great too!
