Breakfast and lunch cafe. Good service. Good menu. Wish we would've tried it sooner. They advertise ice cream and lunch but we only had breakfast.

Simple diner menu. Well made food. Good portions. I think that it was open on Monday while some other restaurants are closed that day.

This was one the best traditional American breakfasts I have had in recent memory. Everything, eggs, sausage, hash browns, toast, biscuits and gravy was outstanding. Portions were generous and price was very reasonable. We ate here three times while exploring in and around Beatty.

During our 18 days trip through US this was the best place for breakfast. Receptionist in the hotel advised us Denny's, but I've found Mel's Diner on Foursquare and didn't regret. Take first dish from their specials (omelette with baked potatoes), it's delicious. French fries were also best we've eaten in US. Portions are big, service fast. Keep in mind,... More
