Amazing breakfast !

Loved this place, everything tasted so fresh and amazing. We are from Atlanta where there are tons of good breakfast places but this places bets them all. Love a true farm to table resturant! Thanks for a great meal!

Great service, great food fair prices. This is a wonderful local place with local foods from local farms be sure to try them out. We enjoyed the Appalachian Breakfast, complete with stewed apples.

Tucked back on the corner next to the post office you might walk past Melanie's and that would be a shame. All the more so if you're a breakfast hound like me...24/7 breakfast sounds good to me and Melanie serves it up all day. Wonderful assortment of eggs and omelets. However, we were eating "light" and opted for salads. Curry... More

Everyone had something different. Three out of four of us really liked our lunch. My husband was disappointed in their hamburger. Their Home Fries were good. Salad Dressings are homemade and very tasty.

We went here for breakfast and it was pretty great! A small place with mismatched tables and chairs. The bread is wonderful. I had the quiche, which came with toast and honey butter, and coffee! Enjoyable breakfast for our first morning in N. Carolina!

My husband and I stumbled upon this place while driving around Boone. I am glad we stopped in. We enjoyed a great breakfast outside. The coffee was hot and fresh. I had eggs, Canadian bacon and fresh fruit. My husband enjoyed biscuits and gravy with eggs and hashbrowns. The gravy was awesome, I used my toast to clean his plate.... More

I was in Boone on a college visit with my daughter and we needed lunch and decided to give Melanie's a try. Very happy we did. We had breakfast for lunch and the portions were generous and delicious. I had the buckwheat pancakes with pecans and apples and my daughter had an egg, bacon, and potatoes. We both left a... More

What busy breakfast joint does not bring coffee right away, or cream with the coffee? When you order french toast why do you wait for syrup and butter? Breakfast took an hour and I enjoyed my biscuit. The french toast seemed to be made from the heels of bread loaves and was tough. We wanted to love the place. We... More

Hi - Thank for the honest review. Our servers are generally really attentive but maybe you caught us on an off day. Sorry for the clunky service and I hope you give us another chance. Also, our French Toast is made with a locally baked oatmeal bun split in two. I can see that if it wasn't soaked enough or... More

We ate enough to last the day! Everything was fantastic- fresh squeezed grapefruit juice, coffee, french toast, pancakes, biscuits, eggs, chicken philly sandwich. And service was wonderful as well!
