Yummo-Definitely returning

This was the best brunch I've had in a long time. I ordered Eggs DaVinci. It was a take on Eggs Benedict. It was one of the more expensive items on the menu and completely worth it. I switched the toast to a biscuit and it was perfect. The biscuit was buttery and flakey. The eggs were poached... read more

We had a wonderful breakfast here, including good coffee, and our waitress, Carolyne, couldn't have been better. She was friendly and provided great service along with a few tips about the area when we asked.

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, and this is my favorite place to have it! We will travel 45 miles one way and stand in line for 40 minutes, just to eat this food! They have an omelet of the day and a pancake of the day (warning - the pancakes are HUGE). The breakfast potatoes are amazing... More

Found this place on trip advisor while traveling. Great homemade food in an eclectic environment. Good service, great coffee and vegan/vegetarian friendly. Amazing stewed apples are a must try side.

We decided to check it out after a morning of hiking. My hubby got a butter burger (which he said was amazing) and I ordered the Apple lation sandwich. Mine was pretty good. The texture of the sliced apples and walnuts made it unique. Drink choices are minimal ( juice, tea or water). Lots of vegetarian and vegan options also.

Two of us came for lunch. We both had the cheeseburger (local beef). Service was super slow, they have no soda options at all, and the cheeseburger was super dry. We really wanted to like this place but just couldn't! Most of the reviews were about their breakfast......so maybe that is a lot better than the burger!

Delicious, homemade local food. There's something for everyone here. We ordered from the breakfast and lunch menu, and we wished we had room for more. Incredible array of choices. Friendly service and clean.

Locals from around the area had recommended that place to me. Great recommendation. I had a great healthy breakfast. Good and fresh quality food. Nice service. Prices and portions of their menu option are very reasonable. Nice outdoor sitting area and spacious indoor area too. Right on the busy street of Boone, from where you can head out to walk... More

The only reason I would tell people to stay away from here is so that I would hopefully be assured of getting a spot. I've eaten breakfast here on many occasions and love the cozy atmosphere and the small patio on main street. The eclectic collection of coffee cups always makes me wonder what my coffee will be served in... More

While staying in Blowing Rock over the July 4th weekend, we tried Melanie’s Food Fantasy for breakfast. This unique little breakfast and lunch café was packed on a Sunday morning. Dora here. Every time we’ve passed Melanie’s, there’s a crowd outside! For a group of five, we waited forty five minutes. So go early or be prepared for a long... More
