The corner of 174th & Washington Ave in the Bronx has served as a business passage for immigrants over many years.
In the late 1980's Deomela Ayala decided to make a run opening a small café serving the Bathgate Industrial Park. With her name being difficult to pronounce, customers started calling her "Mela" for short. Thus the Name Melas Café came to life and has been serving Breakfast/Lunch over the past 20 years.
In this New Chapter for Mela's Café, we are constantly working on improving the quality of the customer experience to grow with the changing community. This is an exciting time for Mela's Café, and we invite you to join us on this journey as we open a new chapter on the corner of 174th. We promise the best fresh food made daily and the best food experience in the Bronx!

Great and friendly service. Quality food at reasonable prices. Popular place...
Great spot with all the highlights youd expect with an occasional pleasant surprise
This place was great. Stopped here in between work meetings and bought the steak sandwich. The people working were really friendly and the food was excellent. Not expensive at all. I will be back
Love Mela's. Such great food and excellent customer service. 😋
