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

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!

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

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!
