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.

A quaint Victorian house turned tiny diner where you can sit at a table on the lawn under the cherry trees for breakfast or lunch. I liked that my doggie was welcome to sit with us. They even brought her water. Very friendly staff, great service and good food.

This adorable house in Sturgeon Bay offers some of the most delectable breakfast items we had on our trip through Door County. We arrived around 10ish and many tables were full, but there wasn't a wait. They do have outdoor seating on the days when it is warm enough to enjoy the scenery. I really, really wanted to try the...

Mel's Place is located on 3rd Avenue and Pennsylvania Street, kitty-corner from Martin Park. It's just beyond the "main drag", so it's quiet and pretty. It's not big, just 13 tables inside and some more outside (where you can enjoy your meal with your well-behaved dog). It's casual but nicely done - happy and bright. The staff is friendly and...

We're back for seconds or thirds with friends, Lou and Mary, whom we convinced that Mel's has the best $2 hamburgers anywhere. Ready for some beef after cooking some great tofu (but it is tofu) meals last week. In the midsts of our catching up, Diane and her family arrived to celebrate her birthday. We all sang "Happy B'dy" and... More

Fabulous lunch and service. My husband and I, both world travelers, stopped for the incredible Tuesday $ 2.00 burger. I am easy to please as the ambiance and views are spectacular. My husband, Hugh, is all about the food. "Lots of meat, less bun," he exclaimed happily. Service and food were wonderful. There was a birthday party going on so... More

Reuben sandwich, that is! The perfect blend of crunchy, buttery marbled rye holding together chopped homemade corned beef, thousand island, and sauerkraut just melts in your mouth. But that's not all Mel's can do! They rock french toast! Hey, how about a choice of pure maple syrup. The french toast deserves it! ;) Mel's is a casual, family friendly place... More
