Consistently Great

I have been going to Minella's for 25 years. Their Breakfasts are fabulous and their dinners are delicious. I have frequently ordered takeout from them and the food is always superb. The only problem I have is the need for double the parking and the restaurant needs to be twice the size...ha ha... read more

I know so many people that rave about Minella's. I've been here a few times (like 3) and I don't get it. The food isn't bad at all, but not memorable. It tastes like any other diner in the area. The three times I was there service wasn't particularly great.

Love this place. I just don't go often, as the plates are so big, and I am trying to cut down on portions. I would love to see them add half platters! The omelettes and the best in town!

A typical diner, but service best I've experienced. Runs smoothly and food served fast and hot. Always busy, but they manage to get everyone seated quickly.

$26 breakfast for two. I have no idea why this diner is so popular. Hubby and I arrived at 8:30am on Sat. Jan 16, 2016 after taking our car to Volvo for servicing. The bad: Only 5 of the 9 booth style window seats were full -- all with only 2 people -- but our server nonetheless chose to seat... More

Have been going here since we moved back to the area. Always busy but tables turn quickly so the wait is never too bad (of course we avoid after church hours). Good food, service and quick.

Simply the best diner. Dessert selection is incredible and made in house. Servers are top notch and can get very crowded. Staff does a good job in turning tables. Coffee is average and menu is pricey for a diner.

We called in for a 9.00am breakfast and although the place was quite full we had prompt and efficient service from a lovely smiling waitress. The menu was typical American Diner, but the food was nicely presented and tasted just fine. Overall a good experience and I would be happy to return.

Love that this place is open 24 hours. Real nice option to have for those of us who work past normal business hours and want to eat out. Love that you can have breakfast anytime. Great pancakes. Service could be a little friendlier. Good food though and decently priced.

I love diners. My daughter and I had dinner here. It was good. Not super memorable. Big menu. A bit noisy.
