“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Sat at the counter since it was fairly busy at 10:30 am, and not only was the food good, it was enjoyable watching the food come out of the kitchen and watching the staff go about their jobs efficiently. The food was tasty and it was a good value as well.

“Basic Old Fashioned Cafe With Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

I love small owner operated cafe's that put out a good meal. And, this is one of those. In addition, the place is interesting as it has been in existence since the construction of Boulder Dam. It has pictures on the walls to prove it. If you are looking for someplace modern with cloth napkins; look elsewhere. If you are looking for a place that is interesting and good; try Mel's Diner.

“Best brunch ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

After returning from a trip to Vegas on July 15, 2012, my husband wanted to show me the historical portion of Boulder City. We ate at Mel's diner and it was the best. The food was excellent, prices were good and the service was excellent. I expect to be stopping in now every time we go to Vegas and I would recommend it to everyone. Walking around the town and visiting all the shops and looking at all the sculptures was also very enjoyable.

“Cafe from the 1930's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

I first asked a local if the Coffee Cup or Mel's was the best place to eat in town. He recomended Mel's. My wife and I loved the place. This little cafe is not fancy. It is clean and has excellent food. I will stop here to eat anytime I happen to be driving through.
