We were on our way to "Our Daily Bread," our usual lunch place when in Boone; however, it was gorgeous weather and we wanted to be outdoors. Melanie's has a large outdoor dining area. Breakfast at lunch is a favorite. The server was very nice. My husband ordered an omelet which was very good. It came with toast and home... More

Very fun place with lots of interesting food and the vibe is like healthy bohemian stoner. No trip to Boone should be permitted w/o stopping in at Melanie's

When we go to Boone, we always make sure to have breakfast at Melanie's. They serve a great French Toast that is prepared with a special kind of bread they make at the restaurant. I usually opt for the Multi-Grain Pancakes. They're the best MG Pancakes I've ever had. The one suggestion I would make is that they do not... More

Tried because of the reviews. Thought the food was expensive for breakfast and was just OK. Service was OK too. The best part of experience was the location and patio.

Melanie's never fails at delivering quality breakfast. Everything I have had there has been delicious and the atmosphere is cute and quaint. I know the breakfast places get slammed, but the staff doesn't seem very attentive, especially to tables that aren't theirs, even if the guests are looking around like lost hush puppies. Staff could be nicer with less attitude!

Came here after reading reviews, we needed a place to satisfy a vegetarian, a picky eater, and carnivores. This place hit it all. The Fruit waffle and stuffed French Toast were great. My picky guy had grilled cheese with fruit and ate every bite. My husband and I had butter burgers. They were very good, but could have been a... More

Love the outdoor seating area and their local breakfast. We ate here our first morning in Boone and ended up returning two more times. The service is great and the food is delicious, love the patio.

This place is amazing. Friendly service, great atmosphere, wonderful location and DELICIOUS food. Their hashbrowns (or home fries) are splendid. Not greasy. Everything about this place is phenomenal. We literally go out of our way to eat there as often as we can.

While visiting Boone, we had lunch at Melanie's. We chose to eat inside, although they have several table set up for outdoor dining. The menu offered a variety of sandwiches. My wife and I enjoyed our lunch here and would certainly recommend this restaurant to our friends. The servers were very friendly and efficient.
