Kitchener fire claims 3 restaurants

A fire early thursday morning destroyed the Campus Court plaza taking Caesar Martini's, Mr Sushi and Mel's Diner with it. From the news pictures, it appears that they are all total losses.

  1. I remember when Mr. Sushi had an open cash register and let you make your own change! Mel's was the best for a hangover morning breakfast...I think it was dirt cheap like $3.99??? Or maybe I was still in a haze...

      I must be getting old because the only place that I know was Mel's Diner. Everything else was after I graduated :) The breakfast was more than $3.99 though.

    2. Total but temporary losses. The owner of Mel's announced intentions to re-open in 6 months.
      From the point of view of 'good food', its not a big loss. But, as an institution it is a massive component of university life.
