We were on vacation in Johnson City, Tennessee to ride some Southern Dozen rides. We did one that brought us through Boone. The cafe patio was packed and that is usually a good sign. We were not disappointed. We ate inside the cafe and it was quite charming- antiques, retro tables and chairs, local artist printings. The waitress was friendly as were the other staff. Would eat here again!

We met some friends here for brunch on Sunday. It was amazing. There was a very long wait and they don't take reservations, but we knew that going in and used the time to catch up with our friends. Once we sat, we were served very quickly. I had my go -to brunch order: scrambled eggs, bacon, grits, and toast. In some places it is better than others, and this place was the best. The eggs were perfectly cooked, the grits were hot and creamy, and the bacon was crispy and flavorful. The toast is made from their homemade bread, and it was delicious. If you are in Boone, go eat here.

We frequent Melanie's several times a year while staying at our cabin in Vilas. The food is always tasty, portions large and their homemade bread is delicious! Don't forget to try the apple butter it is some of the best around. We usually have breakfast but the sandwiches for lunch are also great. The outdoor seating is great on a nice day, but beware of the bees if you are near the flower bed, they can be annoying. So glad they are open Mondays now.

We were on our way to "Our Daily Bread," our usual lunch place when in Boone; however, it was gorgeous weather and we wanted to be outdoors. Melanie's has a large outdoor dining area. Breakfast at lunch is a favorite. The server was very nice. My husband ordered an omelet which was very good. It came with toast and home fries. Also good. I had poached eggs. Delicious and done perfectly with grits, toast, and Canadian bacon. All delicious. Everything is fresh local. The coffee was really amazing. Prices were very reasonable, as well. We will go back.

Very fun place with lots of interesting food and the vibe is like healthy bohemian stoner. No trip to Boone should be permitted w/o stopping in at Melanie's
