With the developments surrounding Mello’s diner the past few days, artist Colin White has organized some Ottawa urban sketchers to get out on Tuesday, November 3, 2015 for a day of sketching this iconic market diner..
Mellos 73 year history in the ByWard market appears to be coming to an end. Mellos has been in the same location at 290 Dalhousie street since 1942 and is being kicked out after their landlord offered the space to neighbouring restaurant Ace Mercado.
