I love Mello's. Best ever comfort food, service and excellent value. Been frequenting this diner with its daily special lunch menus which can't be beat. The older waitresses were always so friendly and made me laugh. I also recall the older French speaking lady, wearing...More

Mello's has been in this building for a long time. They are trying to raise money now for a new location. We were told the landlord rented the space out to the neighboring restaurant and Mello's was given no warning except to move. It is...More

We were prepared for small, crowded and hipster-driven but we weren't prepared for slowwww and pretty average flavors. We waited 90 minutes for our meals. The steak was well cooked but the scallops and brussel were overwhelmed with hot sauce. We saw the burgers someone...More

A good, filling and well-priced bacon and egg with toast and coffee. The potatoes are deep fried and golden. Basic good food.

The good: Food is tasty, especially that goat cheese omelette. Staff are friendly, location is near perfect for a day exploring the heart of Ottawa. The bad: As mentioned in other reviews, it's not bargain food. Portions are not particularly big. Service is not as...More

I used to really like this place when I could get bacon and eggs for $4. Now, the same bacon and eggs cost $8. It's a small diner. They served diner food. It tastes like what you expect bacon and eggs, or club sandwhiches, or...More
