Brunch
I’m all about a good diner. This was my first time at Mel’s and I was jazzed about going, but my experience there can be described (at best) as very lukewarm. My friend and I both ordered omelettes. Mine came with home-fries, but they were...More ... read more

This place was really good. I had the French toast the cinnamon swirl was so good with butter and syrup it was perfect.  The place is cute I was surprised when I was some menus and asked to sit ourselves because it was before 8:00am I laughed, I said oh okay no problem.  We also bought some homemade fresh muffins to take home.  We wi ... read more

Been here a number of times. Service is always excellent. No wait today since it was after 9:00am Food is very good and plenty to eat. You should purchase their muffins at the front before you leave. They are huge but very good and resonably priced.

I'm not sure why my husband and I don't come here more often because the food is always great. I had a pistachio muffin that may have been the best tasting muffin I've ever had!

This is a great place to have breakfast. The eggs benedict are fantastic. The service is phenomenal. Our waitress, Diane, was friendly and patient with us. If you want someplace quiet to sit, ask for one of the booths in the back.

This is my main breakfast place.  The food is good.  Nothing breath taking,  but exactly what I am looking for in a breakfast.  They have a pretty extensive lunch menu that I haven't managed to try out,  because I always want breakfast food.  The also sell Beyond Bean Muffins.  I can never seem to escape without purchasing one.

Could use new and bigger bathrooms. Food was good, fresh fruit bowl excellent, homemade oatmeal excellent, coffee too strong, parking in rear always has odor problem due to sewer, waitress was nice and treated us warmly.

Nice local diner. They get busy in the mornings but are efficient. A little pricey for diner food but everything is good quality and the service is great.

My husband's family has always lived in Framingham, and they have always loved Mel's. I started going with them, and it's definitely something I look forward to when I visit the in laws.

Breakfast only on Sunday. No lunch served. Place has very tightly packed seating and every seat filled on Sunday noon. Pretty standard breakfast menu. They boast a "Phantom Gourmet" sticker on the door. Good food but not, IMHO, noteworthy.

A family place forever
Mel's is always busy. On Rte 30 it is easy to swing by. Breakfast is tasty and served all day and good size servings. Their coffee is awful! Prices are reasonable.

Mels has been around forever, and there's a reason why. It's like going to moms house for breakfast. Food is made to order, and it's served by people who treat you like family.

We shared eggs bennie over latke, and the hollandaise on the side. Enough to pour on my half to make it extra tasty. Eggs were PERFECT POACH, and quite frankly, the side of more potatoes was just overkill, because the dish itself was almost perfect!
