Confirmed Meat Eater Who Loves This Place

I adore meat, so the idea of going to a vegetarian restaurant was less than appealing. However, I would recommend this place to anyone, not just vegetarians. The menu is varied enough for anyone to find something that is to their liking and all of it is well-seasoned. The staff is friendly and it... read more

Living here in Laramie we decided to eat at all the top rated places on trip advisor. This was amazing! Looking forward to going again, the service was a bit slow but the food was fantastic and the menu is intriguing. You'll find lots of different things you want to try. My husband and I are meat eaters but we... More

We enjoyed our first visit to Sweet Melissa. As vegetarians, we are always on the lookout for new places with vegetarian options. The menu is huge and the food is good. Since we travel I-80 between UT and WI, we look forward to stopping in again when we pass through so we can try other menu choices.

We stopped in for a weekday lunch after checking out the Old Town section of Laramie. Service was personable and we were given the prime seats in the window overlooking the train tracks. My black bean "burger" was very tasty but the blue cheese mac on the side was a real treat. My wife loves falafels but was a bit... More

The food is delicious! Varied and interesting menu. Don't miss the banana bread dessert! The decor is warm and inviting - one of the best places to eat in Laramie!

While not a vegetarian in any sense, this may be one of the top Laramie restaurants. I am always happy with my meals. The service is fine. Never have had something from soup to nuts that I did not enjoy. If you are looking for a change of pace or simply very good food, this is a place to try.

You do not have to be a vegetarian to love eating here. It is located on the University of Wyoming campus area in an old historic building. It is really lovely, with the exposed old brick & the nice seating areas. I had the quiche of the day with a side of bourbon roasted sweet potatoes ($8.95). My spouse had... More

We eat here on average twice a week. Food is fresh and consistent. The wait staff are great and there seems to be very little turn over which is unique, especially in a college town. Melissa is always around. We also love the companion bar--Front Street--where the Sweet M menu is also available. You do not have to be a... More

This a vegetarian rest. I think the food is great. Always a good selection for daily specials. I love her homemade soups.
