Found a lovely little eatery with some serious GF and vegan/veggie options. Getting a good solid breakfast before finding some trails for the day 🙂. Very small and hard to see / find from street but very eclectic and interesting on the inside. On to...More

Melanies has been a favorite of locals and college students for years. Their food is extremely fresh and huge servings. Great breakfast, brunch and lunch menu. So many choices it's hard to decide. The staff is wonderful and very friendly.

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.

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.
