I saw the awesome reviewed about the breakfast here but there were none for dinner. I saw their website and it showed they were opened for dinner as well. They do have a menu online but it changes frequently due to the availability of ingredients...More

We came based on the reviews we read and really loved it. Delicious coffee and good service. We had the Eggs Florentine and the Appalachian Extreme breakfast. They have a great variety of items to choose from.

I crave the French Toast here. At first I thought-$10 for french toast? You gotta be nuts? But after one bite, I realized it was worth every penny. The wait staff are always prompt and super friendly. The food is great whatever you have. I...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.
