Location Description:

Nearly lost in a Fountain Valley strip mall, Mel's Diner is more buried treasure than greasy spoon-if you can find it, good things await you. But in the quest for the perfect biscuits and gravy, Mel's is a bona-fide champion. Fresh, fluffy biscuits topped with smoky sausage perfectly cooked (just a little crisp around the edges), and everything's smothered with rich, savory gravy. If sweets are more your style, Mel's cinnamon buns come ooey-gooey and stretching to the edges of the plate.
