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.

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
