We visited Mel's Diner twice - once for breakfast and once for lunch. The waitress that served us breakfast was really friendly and totally made the experience as nothing was too much trouble and she was lovely and chatty. We both enjoyed our breakfast and you do feel as if you are back in the 1960's! The experience for our visit at lunchtime was not quite as good with the food being average and the service being extremely slow and not very friendly. So overall a bit of a mixed experience.

Greeted with a "nod of the head" to dirty counter" & having sat for 5 mins with no waitress I looked for a clean place setting & finally left.

recently took my family here for dinner and enjoyed fantastic burgers, shakes and the best cherry pie in the world. there is memorabilia on the walls from a happier time and it's just a super fun place to eat. they were understaffed the night we went but our server was still kind enough to walk us out and hail us a cab to get back to our hotel. loved it and wish I could go back.

Fabulous food with normal portion sizes, not GIANT food. Perfect breakfast and location. Service is friendly. Lots of historic photos inside.
