We eat there very often and just love the waitstaff. We mostly eat breakfast items after a night out on the town. They have great biscuits and white gravy .

The staff is very friendly. Orders are taken quickly and food prepared in a timely manner. We always enjoy our visits to Mel's Diner. The old signs and memorabilia are quite interesting to look at.
