This is a sister restaurant to one in Avon Lake but the menus do vary somewhat. We both had a chicken wrap with a side salad and it was wonderful. The wrap was huge and we each took half of ours home. You have a choice of sides...the simple salad was very fresh and good. My wife had sweet potato... More

Met a friend for lunch here over the weekend. While the restaurant was busy, we were seated right away. That is where the good service ended. Our waitress was essentially a ghost---we sat with empty drinks for over 40 minutes. Mind you, we were drinking iced tea and water so nothing here was too difficult. When she finally did return...

I have been going to sweet Melissa since they opened. The food is always great , sometimes the food takes a while but then again they are not just just reheating food that was made elsewhere like a lot of chains do. Fun atmosphere and very welcoming to everyone

As a vegetarian, it's hard to find a good place for brunch. Sweet Melissa did not disappoint. The service was friendly - the place was buzzing - the food was beautiful. It wasn't greasy and it was packed with flavor. Bravo!

I've given up. While the menu has a decent variety and the food is pretty tasty, the service is consistently bad. Today was the last straw. The restaurant wasn't even half full and we had to track down our waitress twice. Two hours for a simple lunch for three people. My New Year's Resolution for 2017? Recommend another restaurant when... More

I took my staff to Melissa's for a Christmas Lunch. We arrived early (11:30) so there were very few customers. The staff was very accommodating even when we asked to be moved from a booth to a table. Our server, Antonio, took good care of us. The food was excellent! I had the roasted butternut salad and the chicken risotto.... More

So upon entering, the decor is nice and inviting. There was a "hostess like" person that sat us. She wasn't very friendly or welcoming, but we expected that based on reviews. Our server, Heidi seemed nice, however, she didn't introduce herself when she came to the table initially. We had to ask her what her name was. The menu doesn't... More

We stopped on 11/22. The salad selection is very good. I had the wedge and hand cut fries. The ladies had fried Brussels sprouts and main plate salads. Service was great. Prices are reasonable and most importantly the food was fast and excellent.

I used to love going to Max's deli. The food and service were great. In comes Sweet Melissa's; now just called Melissa's. I've heard rave reviews about the new ownership and today was the first time my husband and I went there for brunch. Upon entering, I knew we had made a mistake. The decibel of noise from the chatter,... More
