Mel’s is the brainchild of Melody and her husband Al Bowers who operate Al’s Burger Shack in Chapel Hill and it’s successful catering arm AlMel’s Catering. Befitting its name, Mel’s will serve as a commissary kitchen for Al’s Burger Shack and the catering company while providing a luncheonette for Mel to serve up a changing menu of soups, salads, entrees and sides.

The lunch menu at Mel’s will change daily based on what is seasonal, what the kitchen might be preparing for catering, and what’s in Melody’s mind and heart. Diners can expect to find items like Pork Green Chili, Avocado Salad, Chicken and Pastry and Mel’s will likely regularly serve it’s popular deviled eggs from the catering menu. Orders will be placed at the counter and food can be enjoyed in the cozy 30 seat dining room or in outdoor patio space in front of the café. Mel’s will also focus on to-go lunch orders and looks forward to serving local businesses.
