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.

Travelled from Cheyenne to get some vegan/vegetarian food and it was well worth the trip. Not too expensive, delicious food.

My wife and I dined here after a day of hiking in Snowy Range. We knew we'd chosen the right place after looking over the menu. In fact, almost too many interesting options. We settled on a shared salad; the "olive lover's lasagna" and Cuban plate; but we enjoyed both so much we had to keep passing them back and... More

Pleasant atmosphere. Rather small cafe in historical building. Lots of yummy vegetarian choices, but nothing my meat-loving husband could really get into. He had the mushroom and cheese lasagna and liked it, but would have rather gone somewhere that had some meat or fish choices.

SO tasty. So many options. Delish cashew "queso." We had the sweet potato burrito to share (it was huge) and also a very potent but tasty aviation gin cocktail. Highly recommend for local scene and good service.

I enjoyed the meal I had previously, more than the one I had on this visit. The potato salad was delicious but the seitan Cuban was way too salty. This restaurant is enjoyable even if you are a meat lover, though. The service was friendly, albeit a little slow. I would eat here again, but I wouldn't order that particular... More

Our very first full vegetarian meal. Lasagne, tacos, salad and red pepper hummus. Food was very tasty and Glenna our server was fabulous. Kitchen was very slow but, Glenna kept us informed and made it right. Worth the stop😎

The Greek salad with side pitta's are my favorite, and they have gluten free options; a great menu with lots of options. The staff is always friendly and Melissa is always around to say hi, as she bustles about to make things happen in a timely manner.

This is our favorite restaurant in Laramie. We make a point to eat here every time we visit. Coming from the Bay Area we tend to have high expectations and Sweet Melissa's never lets us down. They have a seasonal vegetarian menu that any meat eater will enjoy. One of our favorites is the Black Bean/sweet potato burrito and fried... More
