This place is super retro! Old 60’s&70’s memorabilia everywhere! Staff is always friendly and makes you feel like you’re part of the family! Food is good and price is more than decent!

Love this place. Looks like home inside, and the food is wonderful. Good prices, good service, and worth return trips for my family and I.

We have been coming to the Cape area for years in the month of August and we always do at least one breakfast here. Huge selection of breakfasts. French toast stuffed with cream cheese was too heavy but everything else that we tried has been...More

Had a great breakfast here. Pancakes and waffles were very good, scrapple was done just right and tasty. Service was quick. You could tell a lot of the other diners were Locals or regulars just by the conversations going on.

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!

Our family enjoyed a nice breakfast at reasonable prices. The waffles, eggs, and pancakes were all very good and the service was also very good.

We went here with another couple instead of going to Uncle Bill's. It was tiny inside which is fine, but the service was slow. Food was good but overpriced. It's also very dated inside. But the staff was very friendly. Not sure we'll return.

The creamed chip beef was delicious. We had a family breakfast and everyone was friendly. The waitress was on top of our orders and the service was fast.
