We've been here on several occasions. The food is always fresh & tasty. The service is good. They're always busy but we've never had to wait long. My only complaint is that the prices are a little high for diner food.

Minella's has great diner food. My husband and I went for breakfast recently. We were seated right away. Our waitress was very nice. I ordered the Wayne Special. Talk about a lot of food?!?! Wow! Everything was delicious and the price was reasonable.

We loved this place. We stopped by after a wedding at about 1:00am. Our server was SO nice and helpful and engaging. He added to the experience. The food was great, it's not 5star food obviously because it's a diner, but it was very good! Apple pie was ok...the crust was kind of soft and needed to be heated up... More

Minella's does their best to accommodate your group, even in the crush of Sunday breakfast. The service is fast, friendly, and the meals are generous. In fact our table of 4 shared two eggs benedict and they were gracious about it. Really good diner food.

Went here for the first time for a meeting last week, over breakfast. It's clearly popular and has loads of regular customers, so it's doing lots right. But I didn't enjoy it at all. The food was ok, the pancakes were average, acceptable, I guess. I've had better and worse. My guest had fruit, yoghurt & coffee. So far so... More

Visited on a late Monday morning; diner was over half-full. Front door host was a bit gruff. Server, on the other hand, was a wonderful lady. She was prompt, cheerful, and attentive. Booth seating and table were spotless. Our omelets were delicious, although my wife thought hers was slightly dry. Generous portions, served in an appetizing manner, with a smile!... More

Average food wise but it's always busy here. Love the servers at the counter. Try the Greek Salad, milkshakes, waffles, pancakes, chicken fingers, wraps. Nudy's has much better food.

I had lunch with 4 of my girlfriends and everything went fine until we got the check and asked the lady at the cashier to divide it by 5. There was nobody else in line but us and she got really angry and started treating us so bad that we couldn't understand what we did that might have offended her.... More

This place is always open for great service and very good food. Especially if you are looking for comfort food. The wait staffs are quick to attend to your need and hunger.

Upscale diner with full bar, bakery, and daily specials. Everything is good including varried ethnic choices. Serving size are large so be prepared to take food home. Some of the servers have been around so long they introduce people who venture to sit at the counter. So cute and neighborhood like you will see big families having breakfast and ladies... More
