The best breakfast in town

I've tried breakfast elsewhere, but this is hands down my favorite in Boone. Delicious food, yummy coffee and a funky atmosphere. The line can be intense if you get there mid morning, but this place is not to be missed.

This was an excellent breakfast. We came here as a family for an early morning breakfast, and I'm very glad we waited out the 30 minutes. We ordered several of the dishes, and I made sure the sample at least a bite of everyone's! Watauga Sunrise Breakfast, Stuffed French Toast, and Chocolate Chip Pancakes... all fresh and delicious. Oh, and... More

My family and I enjoyed a terrific breakfast on a very cold February morning! The omelets were delicious as well as the hash browns!

This place is small with an eclectic mix of uncomfortable furniture and mix-matched dishes however it is well worth the visit as this is the best eggs Benedict I have ever had! Everything is fresh and made to order. You will not go wrong having brunch here, but expect a wait.

A local shopkeeper recommended Melanie's for lunch on a snowy Monday afternoon. We were greeted immediately upon entering and shown to a table. I really appreciate when you ask a waitress for recommendations and a) she knows the menu and b) she will actually have an opinion. Our waitress gets an A+ for recommending the Mediterranean chicken sandwich -- excellent!... More

We ate a late breakfast here and really enjoyed the food. A local person advised us to eat here and really glad we went. The prices are good too.

Our family of five loved everything we ordered, from the local, organic coffee to the toast made from homemade bread to the home fries. Our friendly waitress Caroline was the best!

I couldn't tell you the last time I ate at Melanie's but it was before they moved to this location and took a hiatus from Boone. I was visiting for the weekend and couldn't wait to eat here. The tempeh is still just as good as I remember it and those homefries!! Yummy! It's so nice to see great things... More

I've been coming to Boone for years and only recently begun looking for a second home and by accident discovered what so many have known for so long. For a wonderfully fresh and healthy breakfast Melanie's has to top the list of Boone's breakfast spots. They are big into locally grown and hormone free items and everything tastes so fresh... More

The stuffed French Toast on a Sunday morning is, without question, to die for. This small, but efficient restaurant offers excellent food in an eclectic environment. Staff are busy, but efficient and gracious. This is an absolute must if you are in the area, either for breakfast or lunch. Fresh, fresh food - most of which is locally produced. You... More
