We celebrated my Husband's birthday by having an 'All American Breakfast' here at the end of April 2014. It was a great experience, the food was plentiful and the waitress most helpful in explaining all of the choices to us Brits. He had the full breakfast and ate all of it, whilst the ladies in the party made do with... More

Minella's is everything one should expect in a diner, 24/7.! Breakfast specials all day lone, fast service, large portions, almost-overwhelming menu. A popular place for morning "business" meeting and seeing people who area local "movers and shakers." Try it and see for yourself.

After being at a dance, many of kids from my school decided to go to minellas. When arriving we were met with an angry owner upset that there were so many kids here. Once we found a seat, our waiter was extremely rude to me and my fellow friends. I simply asked for crayons and the lady completely got into... More

Can't go wrong here with their breakfasts but take note of church times on A Sunday visit as you may be standing outside waiting to get in...delicious pancakes!

This place is great, and like a good old NY Diner, has something for everyone. My family from Long Island loves to dine here. We haven't had a bad meal and we all always get something different. My husband loves getting breakfast for dinner. I like that they have a bar and you can enjoy a glass of wine with... More

This diner was referred to us by my daughter after her nearby college graduation. Initially all expectations were a high rating. Ample parking, great decor, good service, great menu selection, clean restrooms. Upon entry there was a board with their "specials". However, when reviewing the menu, these were only "advertisements", as there was no "special" pricing. Same price for the... More

We have never been disappointed going to Minella's. On our most recent visit I got a fantastic cajun burger with gorgonzola cheese. The burger was cooked to perfection and was really delicious. The fries were done nicely as well. We were stuffed and decided to take home dessert. I got a peanut butter cheesecake which was an individual layer cake... More

MInella's is a basic diner. Different wait staff (from super-friendly to super-indifferent) can make the experience very different each time. A word of warning - I found out the hard way that unless you ask for fresh spinach in an omelet, frozen spinach is used and it is awful. Since it is the only game in town (that we know... More

Met friends for lunch. A large menu from which to choose. Food was good for diner food. Service was so-so as waiter seemed distracted (tried to serve soup to us; it was ordered at another table).

We just came home from our dinner at Minella's Diner. We often go there on a weekend for a brief and rapid dinner. It is a popular landmark in Wayne, PA, and always busy. Its food is what one should expect from diner cooking. The only difference is a very large menu that should satisfy anyone going there. The service... More
