Mel’s Diner started with a promise to Mel by her husband, Jack Naumann, to put her name in lights. He didn’t disappoint.
Mel and Jack have been serving Acadiana since 1963 when Jack opened a small restaurant in the Johnston Street location. Over the years, the name became Mel’s Diner, however, for over 50 years, the menu items and recipes have stayed the same.
The Broussard location was opened by Mel and Jack’s daughter and son-in-law, Shelly and Keith Bond, in 1997 offering the same menu items and recipes. The stainless-steel building, Norman Rockwell prints and 50s décor reflects the original location on Johnston Street.
Both locations serve the best homemade entrées at affordable prices in a wholesome atmosphere, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
Mel’s Diner serves a hearty and tasty Daily Blue Plate Special in both locations from
11 a.m.-9 p.m. On weekends, Mel’s serves the best eggs benedict in town from
6 a.m.-1 p.m.
