I like the place first due to the ambience and view of the Grand River. Bit expensive, but nice to relax and have some coffee time with my honey.

A tad pricey and no free refills on the coffee, but the entrees are always spot-on. Free wi-fi and great view of the Grand River make for an extra special location to meet friends for lunch.

I only visit Melville Cafe for business lunches. I have been there numerous times and always find it to be a bit of a wait and prices a little on the high side. The pizzas are good and I find the staff usualy friendly (albeit a tad clinical). They have a number of salads and can make a variety of caffeinated beverages and they have table and "bar" seating with a view of the Grand River. The patio is nice in the summer and I would suggest as a worthwhile lunch spot.
