Famously know for their Southern Fried Chicken and Egg Nog Waffles, Melba’s is comfort food done pretty good in Harlem. This lovely bistro in Harlem is extremely affordable, offers generous portions and good service. As far as their famous chicken and waffles is concerned, I believe the chicken outshines the waffle just a bit. The Chicken is savory, delicious, seasoned to perfection, crunchy, greaseless, with a juicy tender interior. (not pictured). The waffles are slightly sweet and have a cake-like texture served with a delicious strawberry butter.
My favorite brunch dish by far, has to be the fried catfish and I highly recommend that you give it a try with the cheese grits. The catfish has a delicious well-seasoned batter and is greaseless. The grits are classic southern cheese grits with a thick consistency and lovely cheesy flavor.
I highly recommend you have brunch at Melba’s if you are in the area!
Perfect for: small groups, girls brunch, brunch date, affordable brunch
