Great comfort food, wonderful service and priced right. Portions are huge so bring your appetite. We had breakfast, biscuits & gravy, unless you're a teenage boy, order 1 not 2. Two comes on a serving platter.

Mel's is a nice, clean, homey cafe. The broasted chicken is excellent, and the hot beef is great. Their breakfasts are above average. Prices are reasonable, and the staff that waited on us were friendly and helpful. Definitely a good small town cafe!
