Don't go hungry as you might have to wait for a seat. However, it is worth it as each time I've gone the breakfasts are delicious.

My wife and I attend here every Friday we are in town. The food and service is second to none. You get fill ups on the coffee and a paper to read while they cook your breakfast. You get three eggs, your choice of meat and a large portion of fresh cut home fries and unlimited coffee for less than... More

Location in a plaza with ample parking. Inside looks like a sub shop but it is clean and tables big enough for 4. We had an omelette and Bacon & eggs. Omelet was made as requested flavourful and perfectly cooked. You had a choice of deep fried or grilled home fries, grilled was great. Eggs and bacon were made to... More

I was, as usual, skeptical when directed by my friend to meet him here. The place is in a little plaza with lots of parking. It is relatively nondescript as far as interior appearance is concerned but it is very clean. My first real shock was the menu. I am looking at a breakfast of 3 eggs, 3 sausages, lots... More

To TripAdvisor ... Please note that the picture posted for Mel's Dinor is not Mel's, but rather it is a photo of Tup Tim Thai, which is located across the street. I have found this to be the only way to contact you to let you know of this discrepancy.

I have lived in the Newmarket/Aurora area for 10+ years and never visited Mel's. After reading various reviews on several sites including one that proclaimed "best burger" in Newmarket I felt compelled to stop in. Well, it might be another 10+ years before I visit again. Not that it was bad, it just wasn't that good. Yeah, it's cheap...but cheap... More

So, after the loss of Bayview diner, we were looking for a place to replace it. There are some really nice pricey places in town but wanted to keep it simple. Well, Mel's does that. Good clean breakfast diner. No frills here. Just good eats.

I used to go the "dinor" all the time on my spare when I went to high school nearby about 15 years ago. Place is still exactly the same despite new owners, and that's a good thing! Pretty standard fare, cheap prices, friendly and cozy.
