I really love this diner. The line always looks really long, but somehow the wait isn't too bad. Great Greek food, soups, and bloody Mary's!

I used to like their food, but i think that the quality has gone down. The best thing is that they're open 24 hours, and their desserts are excellent. And, if you drink alcohol, they have a liquor license. Kind of disappointing though when you get something that has been good in the past, and it's not good anymore. Still... More

Most diners don't take reservations BUT with half our party handicapped we had a need! So an advance phone call and they had a table for ten ready for us at the ideal time. The menu is wide and varied with something for every picky eater and I had eight such folks. Prices are extremely reasonable and the waitress, Julia,... More

Great breakfast! Omelets as fresh and moist as they come! ..and real potatoes for hash browns! My little guy's pancakes looked fluffy and fantastic too...and they filled his milk to the brim! Coffee was good but would be nice if it were refilled more regularly (the ONLY mild complaint). Only other minor suggestion would be for a whole grain toast... More

food is serviceable and the prices are fair for a place on the main line. the place is always packed so be prepared to wait for a table at peak eating times

Minellas is a Wayne Icon. It's usually good and sometimes great with an occasional mis-step. If you order an entree, you can usually expect to take 1/2 the dish home for tomorrows lunch! I think they do better with the dishes that the chefs feel like highlighting that day so consider ordering those first!

Minella's is definitely THE breakfast place to go in Wayne. It's open 24/7, but will serve breakfast throughout the day and night. The service is exceptional and the food is delicious. If you are in the Wayne, Bryn Mawr, and/or Devon areas, be sure to stop here for a delicious meal. You won't be sorry. If going on a Sunday,... More

Went here twice for breakfast. First time unimpressive. Second time got it right. Surprisingly the second time was crazy busy and the first was not. Service first time was super slow and the fruit salad over ripe. Second time had a server that was so happy she was singing, suggested cantaloupe because honeydew was not great. Cantaloupe was excellent, omelet... More
