“Still Very Very Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

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 this place. We came to eat here in the afternoon, wasn't real busy but enough of tables were full that its obviously a hot spot even during a typically not busy time. Everything was fine, the desserts were very good too. Thanks for being consistent again. We will be back for sure and look forward to it.

“Not a big fan...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

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...

“Great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Stopped in Laramie overnight on a cross country road trip. Melissa's was a warm and welcome change from more heavy food and "formula" brew pubs. Our appetizers and dinner were delish, and the key lime pie was as good as any we've had. Also need to mention that the drink menu is extensive and creative and we sampled that as well! We had a good time and would recommend Melissa's to anyone stopping in Laramie.

“A Real Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Melissa's is, hands down, the best vegetarian restaurant in Laramie. Even my husband, who normally steers clears of such offerings, has taken out-of-town relatives to this great location. My favorites are the daily special soup offerings, the soup, and the ever-changing hummus choices. For dessert, Melissa's key lime pie is the best I have ever had anywhere!
