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.

The BEST breakfast in Sturgeon Bay!!!!! My Husband had the Meat Lovers Omelette. He said it was the best omelette he has ever had. All the food was homemade using fresh ingredients. The staff was extremely friendly and prompt. We will be back!!!!!!

When we went for lunch they had a very limited menu. Maybe 10 things to pick from and nothing that was all that different from what you could get anywhere else. The staff was also rude and ignored us for 20 minutes until they took our order.

Very nice little place. We ate breakfast there 2 days in a row while on vacation. Nice to be able to sit outside if desired. The food was plentiful and very good! Waitress/waiter were very friendly and attentive. Definitely will go back again.

We found Mel's in 2012 when visiting Sturgeon Bay and I reviewed it then as a little gem. It still is. The breakfast is wonderful, the staff is so friendly and efficient and we were thrilled to see how busy it continues to be. Sherri is amazing as the sole cook. Check out Mel's for some delicious dishes.
