Great Breakfast
Mel's has a great breakfast menu, but you can order anything (almost ) and they will prepare for you. I ordered two poached eggs on a unbuttered toasted English muffin - no problem was served to me perfectly. Upon sitting at the table coffee was...More ... read more

Staff very friendly. I ended up getting the crab cake Benedict and it was very good. The home fries that I got however were very cold and hard and disappointing with no flavor. The waitress did offer to get new ones, but by the time they would have come, everything else would have been cold. The Wayland warrior was good. Home fries n ... read more

Service is excellent!  Waitress really helped me through the menu and made it all work.  Vast menu and all good is made to order.  This establishment is very well know and well respected.  Don't pass it up if you get a chance to eat here.

Get the Philadelphia Cheesesteak Wrap
One of their best dishes for either lunch or dinner is their Philadelphia cheesesteak wrap. Served warm with thin sliced beef and cheese. Yummy! I could eat a few of them but they're filling!

Great breakfast and brunch place. There are many food items and they are all delicious. A bit outside Boston but definitely worth coming over from tome to time. Prices are reasonable.

Great food. My wife and I have been here a couple of times for breakfast and it always has been a great experience. The food is always fresh and its usually fast, but bear in mind we always go early. Do yourself a favor and try the muffins. Multiple options and they are great! Favorite for me: the western omelet; for my wife: belgian ... read more

great taste, a bit expensive
The food was delightful as was the service. The pricing was a bit overboard, but could be worth it on a once a month basis.

Have been coming here for over ten years ! It's not exceptional but it's always consistently good ! Staff seem to have worked here since the beginning of time which is charming .

Solid choice for breakfast or a standard sandwich for lunch. Nothing fancy here just big breakfasts and very reasonable prices.

Love the food and the family atmosphere. It's clean, friendly, easy area to drive to and park, waitresses are experienced and friendly. Mel's seats a lot of people, yet open and comfortable, warm and friendly. A bakery is also available. I enjoyed not feeling rushed while I enjoyed the food, coffee and company.

We had a great time at Mel's! It was recommended to us by a local. The portions were super generous and the menu had SO MUCH to choose from! They offer both marble and light rye, which we were happy about. They did charge me $1.89 for a side of salsa for my omelet. I was not told it would cost extra when I asked for it, otherwise I w ... read more
