“Very nice, limited hours”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Mel’s is a small diner type restaurant in Sturgeon Bay Wisconsin on 3rd Avenue, close to Point Marina, across from Martin Park near the Oregon Street Bridge . This is a casual restaurant, jeans or short are fine. They also have outdoor seating.

We went to Mel’s for breakfast. We found the wait staff to be friendly and the restaurant busy with locals, which speaks volumes for the restaurant. Our food was excellent and was a real value.

When we were there the sign said they are only open on the weekends from 5AM until 2PM.

If you are in Sturgeon Bay and looking for a weekend breakfast or lunch consider Mel’s.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

Basic breakfast food but it was just excellent our bill for two people was less than $12.00.
Service was quick and the coffee was hot.
Easy to find and on a Tuesday morning the street parking was right in front of the place.
If I lived here I would be back each week.

“Weekend in April”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

The first time we went to Mel's was a year and a half ago when we were in Door County. We made a point to go back when we were in Door County this weekend. The breakfast was very good and pretty inexpensive. The restaurant is small inside. The service is quick and friendly.

“Mels Place is the place to be for good food and great service”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Tuesdays are $2 hamburger (very flavorful) days and we've gotten bitten by Mels' value bug. Try the french onion or soup du jour, cabbabe, bean and sausage. I said: "My compliments to the chef on the soups." French fries are crispy and not at all oily. Not particularly light fare, but we don't eat here every day.

Angel, our waitress, was on top of everything. We really enjoyed the local company and the view of rain-drenched Martin Park and the marina. We took a vote and decided Mels the Place and Spring is overdue.

You might also enjoy the breakfasts which include a range of omelettes from Denver to salmon. There's stuff french toast with cream cheese and cherries. Coffee, by the way, is excellent.

Mels is only open for breakfast and lunch.

I think you made us blush:)Thank you so much for all the compliments, from our chef and wait staff. You are right, all of our soups are homemade with lots of love and delicious ingredients, and who could say no to a $2.00 burger. We are pushing for summer too, as we cant wait to set up our outside tables, the view is amazing. I am so glad you enjoy our little humble abode and hope you make it one of your regular stops. From our home, Mels Place, to yours, have a great day and thanks again for commenting.

Our lunch menu during the winter is available from open to close. So anytime of the day, come by and grab your favorite soup, sandwich, or burger. We will revise our menu for the summer months as the season changes our palates. We did have to change our prices as we have had to keep up with the always changing economy. We do use the freshest ingredients and the serving sizes are very large. Thank you for your continued business and keeping us in your favorites. Compliments like that keep us going in the long winter months.
