We enjoyed our meals (brunch and dinner). Both occasions we choose to eat outdoors and enjoyed the food, drink and ambience. The staff were all friendly and knowledgeable. I learned they do not have quick staff turnover which is a tribute to the leadership, food quality and a good place to work. The restaurant is well located downtown Boone on... More

We enjoyed our sandwiches, eating outside and the general vibe of this local institution. It seems like the food is sourced locally and everything is fresh. We tried the turkey Reuben with a side of home fries and the Caribbean Sammie with chicken and a pasta salad. All very yummy.

Breakfast at Melanie's is a favorite, with a wonderful selection of items. The athosphere is down home, but with a splash of Melanie's good tastes it feels more like a great dining experience.

You will find more of a taste for area quisen. Great for breakfast. My favorite is the Potato Madness. Home fries with eggs and lots of cheese. This restaurant is also owned by the Stick Boy people!

We came here one year ago and knew we would be back this year on our visit to Boone. Good coffee and great food in large portions! I was intrigued by the special which was hoe cake with sweet potatoes, black beans, mango salsa and eggs any way you want! It was fabulous!

Thank Karen M

Melanie's is a tradition in downtown Boone serving breakfast and lunch seven days a week. We source all of our bread, eggs and burgers locally as well as other items when we can. We have an eclectic and creative menu serving food made from scratch. We are sensitive to vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free diners. Now open evening hours with a new small plate menu, Booneshine beer on draft and wine by the glass. Come see us Thur-Sat evenings and enjoy a drink and a bite to eat on our beautiful deck while you watch the hustle and bustle of downtown Boone.
