E seI have been going to this place for over 30 years! Yes owners have changed, but the breakfast has not! Everything is cooked fresh and the pan cakes are the best I have ever had. For about $9 I get a great american bf, 3 eggs, 3 pancakes, 3 bacon, 2 sasuage, coffee and juice, I add on some toast. Great atmosphere, they go all out!

This is a short wait on sat and sun in the prime season, summer. But it goes quick, u will love it.

It doesn't get more typical Americana than Mel's. We've only been here for breakfast and it's always been spot on. The coffee's good, the service is great, the food is exactly what you've ordered at fair prices. They just don't make them like this anymore. Mel's is WAY better than the other breakfast joints I've been to in Villas,NJ.

While the menu isn't anything special - its not at all bad, just unremarkable - Mel's stands out thanks to it's quick and attentive service, well-prepared food, and an overall comfortable feeling that makes it a great spot to make your "usual" weekend breakfast place.

Word to the wise - don't count on their posted hours. Their early afternoon closing time can fluctuate depending on how busy the morning was. I you're counting on having a meal, be sure to arrive at least 45 minutes prior to their advertised closing time.

Found this little place driving from Cape May to Wildwood via The Villas. It's charming, staff is friendly, food is good. If you like to stop at a place "locals" like - you'll like Mel's.
