We are foodies and like high quality fresh food. We are prepared to pay higher prices for spectacular dining experiences. We had high hopes going to Sweet Melissa's Cafe after reading reviews. The atmosphere was lovely.....unfortunately; the food was just okay for the high prices. We felt as if they are trying too hard to create very unique dishes. I had the special of the evening it was a seafood "fettuccine" which was served in this very oversized bowl with a little depression in it. I barely found any seafood and what bits I did find were chewy, served in a seafood broth, with a thin green "fettuccine". It was an interesting bland combination and I was very disappointed. My travel mate opted for standard menu items as opposed to a daily special - ordering a fresh salad with goat cheese and pears; and 2 small plates one with watermelon, ahi tuna, and olives (sweet and salty delicacy); and the other a goat cheese crepe. The menu was certainly unique and it seemed like you have better luck ordering standard menu items as opposed to daily specials. We both ordered house specialty drinks which were just fine.
