I only went there once. I didn't have Waffles but plan to in the future. I had Eggs and they were very good. Very organized booths with good sitting room. Plenty of parking.

Found Mel's while taking a morning drive away from the tourist areas. Mel's looked inviting. It was a rainy morning and we wanted something simple with a good breakfast. Mel's was a pleasant surprise. Bravo!
