Though a bit off the beaten track, Melissa’s is worth seeking out for standard Canadian fare that’s good and well-priced enough to ensure the restaurant’s been in business here since 1978.
Best for big breakfasts ($10-14); salads ($11–15) and burgers ($11) for lunch and superb mignon steaks ($33) for dinner.
Once inside the mock-half-timbered building look out for evidence of the log cabin at its core and check out the good upstairs sports bar, Mel’s. It’s great for a leisurely drink during the day, screens most major sports events and can get raucous after dark. Inexpensive daily specials mean you can usually fill up on bar food for well under $10.
