Mel's Diner is out of business. A new owner, new diner, called State Street Diner, is in its place. I'm pleased to see a new food place in the spot of the former Mel's Diner. Mel closed the diner under his name in approx. MArch 2013. Bye now!

Always worth a visit. It's just a basic diner, with typical diner food. Great breakfasts, great burgers.
Staff always welcome you as an old friend. Nothing pretentious, just a fun place in the neighborhood to visit and grab a quick meal.

Proud to say we are regulars here! The waitstaff is incredible! If you go in one week and return the next, chances are they will remember your order. This is exactly the hometown experience you want. People who take the time to get to know you, keep your coffee mug filled, and deliver an excellent breakfast. They serve lunch too, but we stick to the breakfast. They even recognize you outside of the restaurant and will stop to say HI and chat. This has everything you could want in a small town breakfast place. Keep up the great work!

This was a fun, unique treat. I had fish tacos and my husband had Italian beef (the special). Both were very good. It is a very small place with a diner-like feel, with Mexican influence. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The menu is varied (breakfast, lunch & dinner options). Very good food at decent prices.
