The decor is what drew me to Merlis’ and it really is so cool to see art and other decor covering the walls. Just had a tea but would like to go for lunch one day despite hearing the food was quite expensive.

Thank You for your review.
We are glad you enjoyed your Merlis experience and do hope that you will come back and join us for lunch. We are a little confused by your comment that you "heard" we are expensive. Perhaps when you were in for tea,you were so busy enjoying all of the art that you somehow missed our chalk board wall where our menu & prices are posted?
We would like to add that our guests often comment on how reasonable our prices are.

Please come back and give us the opportunity to impress you with our fresh, local food.

Cheers,
The Merlis' Team.

This place is not nice - it is different. Different than anything you can expect in a Cafe/Gallery/Eatery... Frank is a conductor - his place is the stage and the art on the walls and the exquisite locally sourced food - along with your interaction - is his orchestra. This place is a focus of spirit that only a life well lived can create. It is a privilege to sit at a table here. That being said - come in with an open mind and time to appreciate the visuals and the flavours. Check your attitude at the door :) This is the place you are looking for today. The menu is ever changing and will please you on many levels.

Thanks for taking the time to review.

We spoke with Blondie and had a chat, what we came up with is.......................
He's CRAZY!!

Crazy for the town of Kingsville, He's always bragging about the Town and he's not even from here?
Crazy about the shops and business, The crazy nut deliveres to the business' on his bike in the winter-time.
Crazy about the Arts, He's always bragging about the artists!!
Crazy about the great changes happening in Kingsville, he even sends guests to the competition with his big mouth!!
And big time Crazy about Merlis. He's always bragging about the fresh fare!!

So can we suggest, if you grace us with your presence next time just give him a swat and tell him Get in the kitchen and do those dishes!!

The Merlis Team.

If you are looking for a different type of eatery then "Merlis" is the place for you. We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. A very unique atmosphere where the daily menu is written on a large chalkboard on the wall. Art from local artists are hung on the walls and are available for purchase. Frank and his staff are very welcoming and make you feel right at home. Very reasonable meals - once you eat here, you will definitely be back.
