The pumpkin bread with chocolate chips was great not overly heavy on spice. Fair cream cheese pumpkin cupcakes are wonderful quite the surprise with cream cheese in the center . The employees are nice and explain their product well.

Our timeshare in nearby Vilas, NC was unaware of this place - lucky we found it on trip advisor! It is truly one of the best breakfast places ever! I had the "extreme" Appalachian breakfast - 2 eggs (i like mine soft poached and they were perfection) uncured bacon (best ever!)a heavenly home-made biscuit and gravy (they were out of... More

My friend and I were looking for a restaurant for a lunchtime meal on Sunday. I had recently heard about a local place called Melanies. When we arrived, we were told that there would be a 15-20 minute wait and that only a Brunch menu would be offered. The wait was pleasant and my friend and I were seated at... More

We visited Boone in October and went to Melanie's for brunch. The outside seating was perfect for people watching in the crisp mountain air. But....I digress. Get.The.Stuffed.French.Toast! This was an amazing culinary delight! Wonderful bread with berry and cream filling. Oh my!!! Another in our party had a traditional breakfast (eggs, etc.) and they loved it as well...especially the tasty... More

The food was amazing. We had both breakfast and lunch on our visit. The pancakes were wonderful along with everything else. Service was also good. I would definitely recommend.

Great find in downtown Boone, on a cold rainy evening. A menu full of comfort foods met our desires to take the chill out of our bones. The apps and main were wonderful, paired with a so-so local beer, and outstanding service allowed us to warm up and enjoy time away from home. Definitely worth a try.

Had a quick stop here on a sunny October day. Sat outside (recommended) and had great service right at noon. Loved the "Apple"..achiain Sandwich and the squash soup. Highly recommend.

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.
