We have been to Mel’s now many times and it’s excellent place for Gluten-free. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Go early because it get busy.

A great little spot. Friendly folks and ridiculously good pancakes!!

They don’t advertise their GF options, well at least I didn’t see any mention on the menu or their specials board.

I asked because of the reviews here. I’ve been GF (intolerant) for five years. These were hands down the fluffiest pancakes I’ve ever had and they put the fruit right inside! Oh, and they are huge! I got through a half of one…

As I was leaving one of the staff said they also have GF English muffins and the Hollandaise for the Eggs Benny is also GF. She mentioned that they also have GF muffins.

Definitely worth a visit! What a find.

Fluffiest gf pancakes ever and chock full of blueberries! Glad I only got 2 because they were huge. Took half of it home. They don’t have a gf menu but lots of options…muffins, pancakes, French toast. Staff very knowledgeable about what is available. Will definitely be going there again.

It is so nice to find a hidden gem that takes peoples health seriously! Our waitress was the owners daughter and was so helpful and nice. It’s a small place, 8 tables and a little eating counter area, the food was amazing!! Lots of gluten free options, I had GF eggs Benedict it was perfection ! If you have celiac, this is a must stop at establishment. If your not celiac, it’s still a must stop at establishment! Yummy old town small family owned restaurant ! Kudos!

If you don’t go here you are truly missing out...

Mel’s has ALOT of options ... so much so I wouldn’t be able to list all here. Even waffles with dedicated waffle maker!!

Great decor and fantastic staff... friendly down to earth people who treat you as a person as well.

We are thankful to have found such a wonderful place.

We love Mel's Raspberry Patch! Great breakfast, great service, and their GF muffins are so moist and full of fruit - blueberries, raspberries and apple. I always order some to take home!
