Nestled in the infamous Sunset strip in West Hollywood is Mel’s Diner, a little 24-hour Diner and Dive.

With food as spectacular as the stars that walk through Mel’s doors, it’s the perfect go-to joint when you’re craving those late night treats. Celebrities like Taylor Swift, Rita Ora, and even Harry Styles have graced Mel’s booths just this year alone, and that’s only to name a few.

Mel’s offers pretty much everything you would expect in a classic diner, but if you were to order one thing, you should definitely order a milkshake.

Milkshakes are the perfect blend of rich ice cream and endless toppings that leave you feeling satisfied (maybe a little regretful) but definitely content if even for a little while. Mel’s diner is crafting up milkshake flavors from the classic Cookies n’ Cream, to the more sophisticated Coffee milkshake.

I don’t blame you if you’re getting in your car right now to head to Mel’s, but if by any chance you need some more convincing, here are 9 reasons why the next milkshake you have, has to be from Mel’s Diner:

If you don’t like milkshakes, you’re wrong (and most likely lying to yourself).
