Initially we were surprised to discover a totally vegetarian restaurant option in Laramie, but then remembered the University of Wyoming is there. This is a rather small old town establishment in a wonderful old brick building. The menu is reasonably sized with a variety of choices all very appealing. Dailey specials are displayed on a blackboard. We had a light... More

Sweet Melissa's has a very good restaurant, but I like to sit in the bar (full bar menu, great selection of craft beers) because of the staff, who are all very knowledgeable and way into what they are doing. My favorite on the bar menu are the spicy cauliflower buffalo wings- sounds weird, but really tasty!

Who would have thought? A really great innovative vegetarian restaurant in the heart of beef country! And everybody loves it! One of the best restaurants in Laramie.

Great kitschy place to eat. The black bean, sweet potato burrito is a destination on its own, the lasagna can compete with the best Italian restaurants. I don't care for satan but I ate it and didn't complain. Their hummus is homemade and exceptional.

We stayed in Laramie two nights this summer and ate in Sweet Melissa Cafe on both. I'm a veggie so it was a wonderful treat for me to have the whole menu to choose from - and I was certainly spoiled for choice. Fortunately for me, my omnivore husband really enjoyed his food too so was more than happy to... More

My wife and I are from the UK and have been travelling around for a couple of weeks, while we enjoy the usual fare it was great to find this wonderful veggie restaurant. The food was superb, the service excellent, and the atmosphere buzzing, see you tomorrow !

Folks always comment about how unusual it is to find a vegetarian restaurant in Laramie Wyoming - not to mention one that is as wonderful as Sweet Melissa's. The truth is that Sweet Melissa's reflects many of the things that make Laramie unique as a small college town. Laramie if filled with interesting people and people that enjoy getting out... More

This is a vegetarian restaurant, and since I love vegetables but am also a meat eater, I was skeptical when a friend brought me here for dinner. Well, let me tell you, the buffalo cauliflower hot wings (yes, I suppose cauliflower has wings) were out of this world! It is an appetizer but large enough for a meal, served with... More

Everyone I was with adores this place. Maybe it's just me. Portions are large. Prices are good. Everything seemed heavy. Most things were either in a heavy sauce or were deep fried. Maybe next time will be more to my taste.

This place rocks!! Custom orders no problem. Swift service. High quality food. Beautiful presentation. Helpful waitstaff. Priced right. A gem. It stays in business in the middle of steak country - tells you they have it down pat. Love it.
