My husband and I were in Cape Coral and stopped at Mel's Diner for lunch. We were seated immediately and our orders taken. The food came quickly, was hot and very tasty. The portion sizes are more than enough for lunch and the prices are under $10. A lot of seniors eat at Mel's which tells you something - they... More

We enjoyed lunch at Mel's. My Sheriff's Burger was excellent. My wife had an egg dish that was good. Prices are real reasonable and service is excellent.

Sunday, Dec 4, 2016, I was helping to lead a group of German and British tourists on a 12 day tour of Florida. I was very exciting about taking them to Mel's Diner as a classic example of diners in America. Our experience was terrible. Pizza almost uneatable, steaks tasteless, salad looked like it was two days old. An elderly... More

We hadn't been to Mel's Diner in quite a while and stopped by for a late breakfast. I ordered the Biscuits and Eggs with Sausage Gravy which was very good . My wife had the Eggs Benedict that was the best she has ever had. The eggs were perfectly poached with a huge slice of real ham, not puny Canadian... More

We love Mel's breakfast. The screwdrivers are made with fresh OJ and the Bloody Mary are tasty too. We had the biscuits and gravy which we shared. It had 2 big biscuits with lots of thickly creamy gravy filled with sausage bits in it. My husband had the "cakes and eggs" which were pancakes. He chose the buckwheat which were... More

Four of us went there for lunch on Thanksgiving. Menu said meal came with rice pilaf, but food came with mashed potatoes. No rice option. Green beans and corn lukewarm at Best. Turkey noodle soup had no turkey in what we received and very salty. Grouper and was not hot, just barely warm. Service was friendly and tried to help

This place has a BIG breakfast at a good price. NOT A BIG PRICE! Old fashion comfort food that is what this place gives you. You won't be sorry if you try it.

I was surprised about their breakfast menu as I could find different things like the average. Tasted good. We also have been here for lunch and dinner. We never were disappointed. It's solid restaurant where I feel welcomed all the time. That's why we come back once a month.

Thank Robin004
