This is a busy place, so either get there early or be patient. The place was slammed and the wait staff did a fantastic job and were very pleasant. The food was soooo goood. A great place for vegetarian fare.

We visited Boone to go Snow Tubing at Hawksnest. After such a fun day and awesome hotel stay at Courtyard by Marriott, we ate at Melanie's. OMG!!! The staff was pleasant and food was awesome. I recommend the Potato Madness. Wow and the apple butter. Ugh! Delish! Get there before 10 am on the weekends because the line is wrapped... More

Melanie's is a fantastic place for breakfast in Boone with creative dishes and an emphasis on local food. Two thumbs up!

My friend and I had heard really, really good things about Melanie's, so we decided to stop there for breakfast during a trip into Boone, NC. My first impression was poor. You do not seat yourself here, at least not on a busy Saturday morning. You have to give your name to someone, and they put you on a list.... More

Hello Steve. It's hard for us to reply to a review when it veers off from what we actually do into your perception of what you think we are trying to do. What we do is pretty straightforward. We serve a diverse audience of eaters and have lots of vegetarian and vegan options. We value creativity in our dishes, make... More

Great food, friendly customer service, and interesting décor. I read the reviews on this place and was looking forward to checking it out for breakfast. It is terrific! I had an awesome waiter and the food was fresh, healthy, and tasty. I had eggs, potatoes, bacon, and pancakes. I live in Florida and truly wish we had a Melanie's restaurant... More

Melanie's gets busy on weekend mornings so planning ahead really pays off. Great variety of options on the menu, good coffee and attentive wait staff make this a very nice breakfast place. We both had omelettes - the herb specialty and my friend had the Mexican style omelette....both very tasty. The home fries were served nice and hot and nicely... More

We ate here twice it was so good! Don't leave here without trying the pancakes! They are ridiculous! Eggs florentine, Belgium waffles, and incurred bacon are a great option, too! Gravy on biscuits is ideal for mushroom lovers :)

This is a funky little place on the corner of Depot and King Sts. If you blink, you just might miss it. The place does a brisk business and the food is the reason why. You want fancy? Go elsewhere. The tables are small and close together, none of the furnishings match (not even the coffee mugs), everything looks like... More

Organic Hamburger and great atmosphere. Food is always freshly prepared and delicious-well worth the wait. Usually have the breakfast --stuffed french toast, home fries, etc.
