The 2018 Charlottesville 29: Mel’s Cafe

by Charlottesville29


The 2018 Charlottesville 29 is here, answering: if there were just 29 restaurants in the Charlottesville area, what would be the ideal 29? One restaurant will be added each day, until The 2018 Charlottesville 29 is complete.

Next up is Mel’s, the West Main institution where Mel Walker serves up comforting soul food and Southern charm. Why Mel’s? See the Mel’s Cafe guide, with ordering recommendations, including appearances in Five Finds on Friday, where other chefs have named a dish from Mel’s one of the best in town.
