Family value and variety, definitely worth the stop. We have a family of 4 (2 teens) and ordered 3 meals to share. Plenty to go around and options to suit all.

Visited Mels for breakfast. Loads of choice and great setting just off Hollywood boulevard. We had a table with its own juke box where you could chose songs at 25c a pop. Service was good and coffee was great. Recommended

The breakfasts are tasty and consistent, and the service is great. The restaurant has a very authentic 50s vibe and they maintain their jukebox well.

This is the third time we have eaten here over time and have been served by the same waitress (says something) each time! Typical Mel's diner but always a great experience. Food and shakes are great.
