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.

This place is always a good option. I am not a vegetarian, but I have always been more than satisfied with the food at Sweet Melissa's. Menu has items that change daily, as well as favorites that are always available. I would like to suggest that they update some of the seating... there's retro, and then there is just plain... More

This my husband's favorite restaurant--he easts here for lunch nearly every day. The restaurant is charming, and in the evenings, truly romantic. The vegetarian food is delicious, the waitstaff attentive and welcoming, and the adjacent bar one of the most popular places in town for conversation. My only complaint about this restaurant is that it's a vegetarian restaurant--sometimes I'd like... More

Had a fantastic dinner. All of us were very happy with our choices. Love the vegetarian options, creative menu items and big portion sizes. Get the Gorgonzola mac & cheese as a side. So good. Love the funky vibe of the space. Good value for your money. We got there early, 5-ish, and the place was pretty empty and the... More

This place has a cute, creative menu and I appreciate the emphasis on vegetarian options. Cashew queso was good and my meal (a special of some kind of grilled cauliflower salad sandwich) was delicious. My husband enjoyed his lasagna. I did have a bit of a stomach ache later that night, but I blame myself because I should have only... More

While I generally order something with meat in it when I dine out, I never miss it at Sweet Melissa's. The food is always incredible. Give it a try, you will love it.

I enjoy going there occasionally since I am not vegetarian. I really enjoy black bean based meals. They have good lentil dishes.
