Ordered a vegetarian lasagna with caesar salad to go. Upon opening my meal I found the salad had bacon on it which now ends up uneaten. I decided to give a kind and courteous call to the Manager to let them know. The Manager retorted, "Well sorry, but most people KNOW caesar salad has bacon on it. You should have... More

I visit here often and love the food and service every time. They offer delicious desserts to compliment a great little meal. Often I don't make it past the pizza on the menu because the choices for pizza are wonderful, but the soups are great as well. There is comfortable seating and it's usually busy enough to create the healthy... More

Only ever had lunch or coffee here. Lovely spot to look over the Grand, reminds me a bit of a Parisienne cafe with the view of the river and the older architecture. The coffee selection is great and the pizzas are excellent.

I have been here on two occassions, once to order pizza and once to order just a beverage. Both times I went, the staff were amazing and friendly. They even took the time to chat with me and they even appreciate my Spidey keychain who I call my best friend. Lily is an amazing cook and an amazing person who... More

We went on a Tuesday at lunch and took advantage of the Tuesday sale on pizza. We ordered one with pepperoni and fresh basil, and one with bacon and goat cheese. They are thin crust and the fresh basil totally changed the flavor of a pepperoni pizza. They both were excellent, but it took a long time to be made.... More

My little guy and I frequently visit Melville Cafe when we are in downtown Galt. The food and service is always fantastic. In the summer, you can sit on the patio overlooking the river and take in the beautiful architecture surrounding the area. I had the chicken salad on naan (yummy!) and my son had a custom pizza (he says... More

We all went for the pizza special. Each of us ordered a slightly different pizza and we all enjoyed them. very good coffee, as well in a nice atmosphere. Wi Fi use is an issue..people tying up tables when others could use them.
