One of my favourite places in Sackville. Bacon and a date square, with a side of coffee? They can make it happen. The candy cane milkshakes are a Sackville Midnight Madness special tradition. Look for the owner's Orange Crush banana seat bike on display and the local favourites in the jukebox.

Came here for lunch. Got a chicken panini and a regular burger and gourmet burger "Kahuna Burger". You could tell the burgers were not your typical frozen ground beef, this stuff was awesome. The panini looked kind of funky but it tasted very good. Even the fries were home made and were tasty. Actually getting ready to go back right... More

Delicious hamburgers and fast friendly service. Good selection of bottled beers. 1960's diner décor. Great location in the middle of downtown. Perfect spot for a quick lunch with a cold beer.

Every time I'm in Sackville, I have to stop in at Mel's. It has such a cozy vintage atmosphere complete with a jukebox and old timey photos and decor all over the walls. The friendly service and homemade dishes never disappoint (and the prices are great!) Their old fashioned milkshakes are to die for. If you're looking for a place... More

We travel through Sackville at least once per summer - from Ontario on our way to Halifax. A stop at Mel's is ALWAYS on the agenda and well worth the few minutes drive into town. Fabulous breakfasts and Lunches, (I love their fries!) you can't go wrong! Yummmmmm !

Very expensive for quality and service. It was Monday, May 16/16. We had reservations for 6:00 pm. The service was absolutely terrible. We were not checked on to see if everything was alright. The server forgot a side of gravy and a milkshake. $4.50 for a milkshake, ridiculous! We did not receive our check in advance. I like to be... More

Sorry you had a bad experience. Our staff had just come off an incredibly busy weekend where they had been run ragged for 4 days straight. But, that's still no excuse for substandard customer service. Regarding our prices, I still find we are under most restaurants in our category. Keep in mind, most of what we serve is home made,...

Had a Lumberjack burger with freah cut french fries. You can't eat like this everyday. But, hopefully once a month you can chow down on a burger with back bacon and egg!

Mel's was recently renovated but it still feels like it did in the 50's. It's an original. It has these best burgers and fries anywhere. We enjoy the personal service of the new owners and staff.

We are at Mel's with a 3 yr old and a 9 month old. Very kid friendly. The burgers were delicious with homemade patties. The fries were also tasty. Not too greasy either. The service was great. Very friendly staff.
