We loved this small breakfast aND lunch place! Closed in 2014 - They had great prices and the view of the Bay was great and in summer you could eat outside and watch the ships go by!

Mel's was one of our favorite places for French Toast and superb Reuben Sandwiches....we were disappointed to learn that the business is closed. We confirmed this with a local Sturgeon Bay resident. Will keep an eye open in case they happen to pop up somewhere else in the county. Thank you to all those at Mel's - your welcoming atmosphere... More

We like Mels. The $2 hamburgers on Tuesday are absolutely delish...very good quality Coffee is wonderful as well.. But the signs in the window are down as of 11 November 2014. The place looks deserted. Perhaps they are just closed for the winter. We hope so.

Perfect spot to go while on vacation. Unique small restaurant that is very busy. Once you eat their food you'll know why it's so busy. Great breakfast!

Walking distance from Bridgeport Resort. Yummy scrambled eggs, smoked bacon, whole wheat toast and a large mug of coffee... Reasonably priced! Friendly staff! Don't miss this one....

We happened upon this place from Trip Advisor's app "near Me Now" (which I love). This diner is off the beaten path but worth it. Forget y9our diet...The portions are big and homemade. We had the omlettes(whic are huge packed with bacon), the steak and eggs (the steak was really tender) and the corn beef hash (a little dry). Coffee... More

This was my 2nd visit here. 1st time was this summer where I had the ocean liner sized cherry french toast. It was wonderful, and will easily feed 2-3 people. I swore I would come back! I did, and I made a great choice. There were 7 of us. We each had something different! I had the corn beef hash,... More

The house was cool. The food was great (love biscuits and gravy, this was one of the best I've had). Bad points included the service... I heard them tell several people the wait would be 30 minutes when it was clear tables were opening up in 5 minutes with no one waiting... I think the waiter was too busy and... More

Was hoping for breakfast, but was too late. The quiche was excellent! Good service. Kind of tucked out of the way.
