We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a go for dinner. When we walked in the atmosphere was really buzzing and the smell of the food was delicious. My husband ordered a lasagne and I ordered the Thai stir fry (peanut, ginger etc) both were specialities. Service was good and friendly and I was really... More

The waiter said that the vegetarian burrito was one of the best sellers at lunch. The burrito normally contains sweet potatoes with the other ingredients of black beans and rice. They were out of the sweet potatoes and offered to substitute white potatoes. I accepted but regretted it after I received my meal. White potatoes are rather bland in the... More

You wouldn't expect to find a top-notch vegetarian restaurant in Laramie, WY, but Sweet Melissa's is absolutely an excellent place to eat if you don't favor meat. The food is always fresh, the service is always excellent, and the prices are always good. The mushroom swiss veggie burger is as juicy and good as any meat burger: it features a... More

If I could cook like this, my husband would happily become vegetarian & never look back. I got the seitan fajitas & they were fresh, with a great spicy kick. DH got the sweet potato burrito & loved every bite. Filling, & also had a spicy kick. DD got the grilled cheese off the kids menu & DH said the... More

We were walking around downtown Laramie and we kept smelling something good, and we found it at Sweet Melissa cafe. The dishes that we had, 3Bean chili and black beam tamale pie, both were excellent. The crowd was mixed with both young adults and seniors.

We were stopping in Laramie just to go to the yarn store. Sweet Melissa's is right down the road so we figured we would go to lunch at the same time. I'm so glad we stopped! The hummus appetizer was so good and it's some of the best hummus I've ever had. I ordered the mac and cheese with the... More

Ate lunch here recently. Friendly staff. Free, on-street parking. Varied menu, with no meat, poultry, or fish to be found, so if you have vegetarians in your party, you will have loads of options. Nice to be able to order wine or cocktail with food. Food was tasty, but very overpriced for what we got, and the vegans in our... More

After eating at some pretty terrible restaurants in Missouri it was refreshing to come across a solid vegetarian cafe. It was however, just solid. Food was attractive and warm but a bit under seasoned. Vegan cooks have hyper sensitive taste buds, so for them a grain of salt goes a little too far. Awesome service, food was out quick, and...

I found this restaurant thanks to the direction of the Food Coop and it was great. I had the seitan steak dinner with mashed potatoes and sweet potato with gravy. The meal was quite filling and i had enough for the next day's lunch. It is located in the old section of town and faces the railroad, but that minor... More
