This is a great spot in Boone, NC. It's a small spot with a great diverse menu. I got chorizo sausage and egg breakfast burritto and it was FANTASTIC. Also there coffee is great and is from Stick Boy a local bakery in Boone.

I really enjoyed my breakfast here, the food was amazing and definitely worth the money! You get a lot. The service by the table was very good. The only thing is that we waited for a table for over an hour, and the staff by the reservation table were very nonchalant, unfortunately. Except for that, amazing!

So great to find well prepared, fresh vegetables on a road trip. Delicious meat and fish options as well. Nice sized portions at an excellent price. Cute decor.

Tempeh strips or bacon, sausage gravy or soysage gravy with outstanding locally roasted coffee( ask for directions if you would like to purchase some). Patio dining for warmer weather. Weekend lines during school year but... More

The restaurant is cute, chic & fun. The tables and chairs are mismatched and the local artwork is fabulous. We went for dinner (Yes! They are open for dinner!) and were seated quickly and had great service. My 3yr old ordered grilled cheese & fruit. The fruit bowl was great - blueberries, orange slices, grapes, and strawberries. I was trepidatious... More

Went for brunch and it was definitely worth the wait. Good wholesome food and very fairly priced for what you get. Service was excellent and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone.

By far the best burger EVER... Loved the fast service and great meal. Made perfectly and I normally do not eat burgers, but I would eat this one again and again. I had always had their breakfast but now I plan to mix it up between lunch and burgers from now on. Come in hungry during the lunch hours and... More

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.
