Melly Mell’s owner, Carmell Jackson, joined the buzz today. She talked about her early days and how she came to be a restaurant owner and caterer in Madison.

I had not heard of her restaurant so the first thing I did was look up a few reviews. Not so surprisingly most reviews spoke of the restaurant as an undiscovered Madison treasure. In a fun review by the Isthmus, one reviewer wrote, “Indeed, if you’re the type of person who likes to track down hard-to-find, thrilling-to-discover authentic food spots, Melly Mel’s is a gustatory holy grail. This is Madison’s very own soul food speakeasy.”


We’ll provide a map for you just because the word is that this place is hard to find.
