We elected to try Sweet Melissa's Cafe based on the favorable reviews we saw at TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed the food and service could not have been better. We went in for an early dinner on a Friday night and booked a reservation for Saturday night on our way out. My wife started with the rabbit pate and had the fish stew on Friday, both were excellent. I had the cheese plate to start and the smoked/grilled filet. The beef was tender and perfectly cooked and the vegetable sides were perfect as well. The following night we both started with the yellow tail sushi plate and we both had the cobia for our main course. We ended Saturday's meal with the Cheese plate as a dessert. A nice ending to a great meal. The kitchen is open so you can see the chef and the staff working on the meals for the entire restaurant. The entire operation was running like clockwork both nights. No wasted words or movement just everyone from chef to waitstaff working together to ensure every dinner had an excellent experience. I saw comments regarding the cost of a meal here, but I must say when the bill arrived it was a pleasant surprise. The half portions helped but, but I was eating the full portions. We are from the Orlando area and when we go out an get a meal that is as well done as what we had at Sweet Melissa's our bill be generally half again as high. In short you will get a great meal, great service all at a fair price. Enjoy.
