Friendly joint. It's not a five-star restaurant, but it certainly is a five-star diner. I always feel welcomed here.

First off, I want to apologize for not having any photos to post... :( My wife and I came here for lunch on Friday and we found it to be pretty busy but we were seated right away. Our server appeared to be very experienced and was so polite. They have so many options to choose from that it made me a bit overwhelmed. I decided to orde ... read more

I have been going to Mel’s for all of my life. Their breakfast and service are always a pleasure. They do a great lunch as well without a doubt. I recommend Mel’s highly.

Good straight forward food
Stopped for lunch. Had a pastrami Rachel sandwich which was probably the best one I have had in a long time. A local spot you can count on for consistently tasty food.

My "Philly Steak" omelet was great. Server could have kept me "cooffeed up", but otherwise quite good.

Excellent food & Service!
If you're in the Wayland area, a visit to Mel's is a must! They offer such a great variety of items for both breakfast and lunch. Their muffins are SO yummy! We always get a few to go. The staff are friendly and efficient. Can't...More ... read more

Good service and great food. The famous eggs Benedict is a solid choice.

Cute Place
The decor is reminiscent of a 50’s diner and the service was friendly. The food was OK, neither bad nor great. If I were in town again, I’d likely stop and get a muffin from the display case and a coffee to go instead of...More ... read more

Usually we like it here - even the cranky and slow waitresses.  But I usually get breakfast. Today I had the worst grilled cheese and tomato sandwich ever.  The tomatoes were so pale they were barely red - I generally only order tomato in summer and in season so thought I was safe.  There were about 5 tomatoes with barely a piece of ... read more

Mel's is always good. Friendly servers and consistently good breakfast. Love the eggs Benedict and hash and eggs. Dining room is a bit cramped when full, which is almost always. Good place to bring the family and prices are reasonable. You won't be disappointed or leave hungry.

This place is a Wayland institution! I had steak tips and 3 eggs. It was delicious. Wife had Cape cod BLT which had a fried fish patty (kinda like filet o fish with bacon, lettuce, and tomato). Daughter had fish and chips. Son wasn't hungry and had a bowl of chowder. They were all yummy! Server was super nice.

No wifi, really? 50s vibe. Waitresses are ok, nothing special (and wonder why they lose biz to service oriented franchises like Panera). Food is very good. Only 1 power outlet and cell signal is bad.

Great brunch and lunch place
It's been a fixture in Wayland for many years. The menu has extensive selections and moderately priced. They only do brunch on Sundays with special items. I've never been disappointed.

I stopped in for a late breakfast on a Monday morning. It was not crowded and the service was pretty slow. I had pancakes, which were good, but nothing outstanding. The coffee was pretty bland. I wouldn’t rush back as it was not cheap. Breakfast...More ... read more

Brunch

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.

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.

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.
