Mel’s Diner is considered a huge staple here in Los Angeles so it was only right that I made a visit to indulge in some of the diner’s favorite go to entrees. The décor gives you an Old Hollywood vibe while staying consistent with the ambiance of a true diner. Busy waiters going through the aisles, a semi open kitchen to see the food being made fresh to order and the infamous jukebox in the corner awaiting a customer to drop in a quarter and select an old tune to take you back to a nostalgic time.
I decided to try the French toast and my husband went with the old-fashioned buttermilk pancakes. You cannot go wrong with either choice. Both entrees were great and just what we had wanted in terms of getting that real breakfast fix. So far, I’ve seen 2 Mel’s locations; one a block from Hollywood and another in the Sherman Oaks area but I believe there’s a total of 4. The next time you visit California, I would be sure to make a stop here. It’s open 24 hours and has a welcoming menu of pretty much any craving you may have. Take a look at some of the snapshots I was able to get from Mel’s.
