Great location on the river, and a good selection of hot drinks, food, and desserts. This is a great place to go for coffee to support local and avoid one of the chains. I would definitely return.

Food was excellent in a very comfortable atmosphere. We sat along the windows with a nice view of the river. Free WiFi which made my daughter happy.

Melville cafe is at the centre of the downtown and shares space with the school of architecture. Beautiful view of historic buildings and the river. The food is attractively presented, however the service is rather slow.

Only ever had lunch or coffee here. Lovely spot to look over the Grand, reminds me a bit of a Parisienne cafe with the view of the river and the older architecture. The coffee selection is great and the pizzas are excellent.
