My bf stopped here on our way to CO. He'd been before, but my first time. I'm not a vegetarian...not even close, but I LOVED the food! The soup was really good. All the ingredients felt fresh and savory. Also had the pita with falafel...yum! The best part was definitely the fried banana bread...don't miss out!

Wanted to like this place, as we eat vegetarian routinely, though are not die hard vegetarians or vegans. We visited during the off-hours in the afternoon and we were the only people in the restaurant. The food tasted warmed up from lunch and was not as fresh as many reviewers indicate. We had among other things the lasagna, veggieburger an... More

I went there about a year ago with a friend who eats only there. Well, I had burned veggie burger, the place was dim and unpleasant, they just opened the bar but apparently did not have enough money to spruce the place up. I'm not going there ever again.

Sweet Melissa's is wonderful and I am definitely not a vegetarian. Their food is always tasty, combining interesting flavors in a relaxed atmosphere. This restaurant is a rare find in the Laramie food desert.

This restaurant is a vegetarian restaurant but don't let that scare you! We have been to Melissa's several times and it is always very good. Almost everyone in our party had the eggplant parm which is the best! We have noticed that the portions have been scaled back but we still left full. One other thing we ordered was the... More

We are not strict vegetarians (other than our young daughter), so it takes really good vegetarian food to satisfy us. I have to say that unlike a lot of vegan restaurants, this place will appeal to omnivores as well. The choices are varied, the beer options are excellent, and the place is cozy. Our kids were well treated (I don't... More

I'm a life long carnivore and eat here once or twice a week. The food is phenomenal, and the service is always attentive and personable. This is the best place in Laramie to eat.

I've lived in Laramie for most of my life, but I have never went to eat in Sweet Melissa Cafe, but my great friend thought it a good time for me to get my feet wet, so I accepted. I tend to not expect too much from Laramie restaurants due to poor service and mediocre food, so I didn't expect... More

Ate here about 3 years ago. Didn't get disappointed. Anybody can make cheap food, but it usually tastes cheap. Not here, the food tastes very fresh and when an item isn't necessarily a "fresh" item such as produce it at least is of high quality. I don't really care about ambiance or waitstaffs really but I feel really comfortable in... More

I know this place is raved about but I don't see the appeal... the menu is very small and I have never really enjoyed a dish there. The worst aspect of this restaurant is that It's easy to make all of these dishes at home. The bean "burrito" is literally a tortilla with a can of black beans...
