We slipped in just before a rush -- it is a small place, but service is quick, friendly, and the food is wonderful! We had eggs, bacon, pancakes, biscuits and sausage gravy and grits. We've also had the mushroom gravy in the past, and I...More

The meal was delicious every time we went to Melanie's during our three-week evacuation from Naples, Florida. Service was also quite good, though I agree with others that we had trouble at times getting in. That makes sense with a popular restaurant. I like best...More

We got seated pretty quickly outside and ordered our half price appetizer of pimento cheese. Unfortunately, our appetizer came at the exact time of our meals. That was a bummer. We enjoyed our dinner.

There's something on this restaurant's menu for everyone, and the service was great. They even brought a water bowl for our pup! Great warm tea on a fall day, fresh juice, ample coffee, and really interesting daily specials. Creative with fruit & pancakes, extremely good...More

Melanie's breakfasts are awesome and worth the wait. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Try the banana walnut waffle or the fruit waffle!

Ate here on a Saturday night (App State game night) and enjoyed having the restaurant to ourselves. Melanie's is always busy, especially on weekends, so finding it open on a Saturday night at 8:00pm with no wait was a pleasant surprise, plus there were appetizer...More

About an hour wait at 11:30 for a table for 2-but worth it. Have an app that lets you know how many before you and when table will be ready. Good is wholesome and reasonable worth the wait.

Melanie's is a tradition in downtown Boone serving breakfast and lunch seven days a week. We source all of our bread, eggs and burgers locally as well as other items when we can. We have an eclectic and creative menu serving food made from scratch. We are sensitive to vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free diners. Now open evening hours with a new small plate menu, Booneshine beer on draft and wine by the glass. Come see us Thur-Sat evenings and enjoy a drink and a bite to eat on our beautiful deck while you watch the hustle and bustle of downtown Boone.
