  • Count the number of seconds it takes to get seated - usually under 20 seconds.
  • The WiFi password is their phone number.
  • 'Speed' has a new definition by now! This place is FAST!
  • a little pricey but great breakfast.
  • Pancakes, eggs and a Coke with a smile. Bring quarters for the jukebox!
  • after REQUESTING an ice water, the waitress proceeded to flip the "conserve water" sign. I don't care! I'm gonna drink it you punk!
  • try the Tortola scramble, yum!
  • Just a great place for breakfast. You can get a meal and custom make the eggs and bread to make it your own. My fave combo: corned beef has with sunny side up eggs and sourdough. A generous portion!
  • I LOVE MELS! Great food!
  • Like all Mel's make sure you get a seat near a juke control. A quarter a song and full of classics

  • Good lunch, not so good breakfast. Pinecrest have way better hashbrowns.
  • Cinnamon French Toast is remarkable!
  • I used to like this place, but it's now one of the worst breakfast in SF. Two eggs, bacon & juice for $15. Eggs are undercooked, potatoes are raw, blackened & covered w/ overcooked onions, ect. Avoid!
  • Short rip sliders or meal is good stuff.
  • Try the Elvis
  • Love the Elvis Scrambler.
  • Good breakfast, love their vintage decors and jukebox
