NYC in Lassi

This is an American style diner but with Greek style hospitality. Home made lemonade is a must. The pancakes were my favourite for breakfast and also a enjoyed a Greek salad for lunch.

The food is good for your usual English breakfast or sandwich, however this is not number two in Lassi. It is overrated in that sense, as other restaurants are by far more worth a visit. If you decide to go, only go to Mel's for breakfast or lunch as you would be disappointed with it as an evening meal.

We stopped here on several occasions during our week in Kefalonia; a few times for lunch, once for dinner and countless times to get some ice cream and tarts. If you're staying in Lassi then this should be on your list to visit at least once and I'm sure you'd be happy to go back. The service and quality are... More

Took the walk to Mels one night based on #2 rating on trip advisor and turned around thinking more Cafe than restaurant... Went back today; great brunch... round up of family thoughts... burger great... pancakes great... souvlaki great... ciabatta Mediterranean great.... 4 meals, 7 drinks... 40 euros... Will be back, others plates looked equally appetising!

I absolutely loved Mels a great wee hidden gem. My son and I often eat there whilst on holiday he loved the milkshakes. I loved the tzaziki best I have tasted, young English waitress even told me how they make it when I asked. Staff very pleasant too.

Burgers etc., some dishes more Greek. Good value, some nice breakfast options. A good choice for anyone who has had enough traditional Greek food.

Right at the top of the road from our hotel Lassi Hotel, we went here most lunch times during our week stay. The food didn't disappoint! The Caesar salad was to die for, so tasty!!! The decor in the diner was very American retro and and the staff seemed nice enough. Food was served quickly and was very fresh. The... More

They also sell various cakes, pastries and a huge... More
